We've been invited to a wedding on the Jersey Shore later this month. My mother in law intends to bring Bil. We have to stay overnight in a motel room.
Anyone familiar with autism knows where this one is going.
Several years ago my mother in law brought Bil to another wedding requiring an overnight stay. We weren't able to accept that particular invitation. But I understand that Bil did not do all that well.
There are going to be 5 of us (including Bil) in a "suite" motel room. In other words, four of us in the bedroom and Bil in the living room. He'll have his own TV. But I don't think any of us are going to sleep well.
I am not looking forward to this. In a way I wish she would let Bil stay home on his own. He is not going to enjoy the noisy reception and the strange hotel room is going to be stressful for him. There's no good way to prepare him. He will probably have a good memory of "last time" which will sour him even more. But most of all, if something happens, we won't have much of an "escape" for him.
I believe most times for inclusion but this time....I just have a bad feeling about this.
I hope I'm wrong.
