Nadya Suleman is long past her days as the infamous Octomom, and these days is just a regular ol' mom, with 14 children.
However, things are not all glamorous for the former media phenomenon, and she is opening up about daily life with her autistic son.
This is my adolescent infant Aidan, Suleman explained along with a video of Aidan playing in the park.
"He is 14 years old, going on 1 in his head. Aidan is severely autistic and total care. He requires complete assistance in meeting all needs in activities of daily living. Aidan is non-verbal, requires feeding, changing (he is not potty trained), bathing, and one to one supervision, as he has no safety awareness and would walk aimlessly into traffic."
Suleman says she is Aidan's sole caregiver, along with balancing life around her other 13 children.
She still suffers from injuries sustained while carrying and giving birth to the Octuplets back in 2009, describing that, "I’ve struggled with permanent disabilities for over ten years (all discs in my lumbar spine are ruptured, which press on nerve roots causing bilateral sciatica, irreparable sacral damage, and peripheral neuropathy)."
However, she states, "Despite my broken back, and relentless pain, I continue to physically care for my son, and will never give up on him."
Suleman said that instead of posting about her other children going back to school, she felt it was important to highlight life with Aidan, and, "to describe the details of my REAL life, not a 'perfect' depiction of what I want people to perceive my life to be."
She also wrote that she wanted to, "provide a contextualization for both my supportive followers, and the condemnatory critics, as to what truly matters in my life: my family."
These days, Suleman has traded the spotlight for a quiet life in Orange County with her 14 children, and although she tries to keep fans updated on her personal life ... she explains that it's hard to keep up posting, because, "I am a bit busy."
