I think the hardest part about having a disabled family member today for me I would say is managing expectations. It is really difficult to explain to people, or not really have to explain, but for people to understand that it might take a little bit longer for him to do things. We might be late a little more often and that he might not be able to make it to things sometimes because of secondary issues. And just to be understanding that there’s some things that come along with this that they might not know of or understand. But just to be patient with that, and just to not make that person feel bad for those things that they have to deal with that you might not know about.
