My son has gotten older, and we discovered a few years ago that he has autism. While there is so much that frustrates me with his special needs, he has changed my life so much. He is a very tactile person, and that loving touch between him and I, whether wrestling, hugs, or tickles… that REALLY has filled a deep and previously unmet need for me.

Wherever you see "jaklumen", that's me. The username is still unique as of 2016, so it's just me, and only me. It's the real me, because I'm bad at faking otherwise.
