Jersey Shore star Jenni “JWOWW” Farley revealed in November 2018 that her son Greyson had been diagnosed with autism. Since then, the reality TV star has been open about Greyson’s progress, doctors’ appointments, and any new diagnoses.
On Monday, the mom of two shared that her son has also been “experiencing OCD tendencies” with a post on Instagram.
JWOWW says her son Greyson is “experiencing OCD tendencies” in recent post.
In the emotional post, she wrote, “Not sure if they are related to his ASD or just overlap. He cannot continue anything until it’s redone the way he wants. Whether it’s dressing himself, making his own drinks, or walking a certain way.”
“Every time it breaks my heart but I’ll never give in. If I give in, he will just up the level next time,” she continued. “One day he will learn and grow up to be an incredible adult. Until then, mama will be right by your side, helping with your every step.”
JWOWW has many fans following and supporting her every step of the way as she shares Greyson’s progress with applied behavior analysis therapy, which he’s been doing since he was diagnosed with autism.
One proud supporter is Snooki, her costar and friend from Jersey Shore. “You’re the strongest mawma I know & I love you,” Snooki wrote in response to JWOWW’s OCD post. “Bubby is so lucky to have you as his mommy.”
JWOWW shares custody of Greyson, as well as her daughter Meilani, 5, with her ex-husband, Roger Mathews. She’s currently dating Zack Clayton Carpinello, and the couple recently celebrated his 25th birthday along with her Jersey Shore costars Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino and Vinny Guadagnino.
When I’m not hanging out with my three-year-old and husband in Brooklyn, I’m busy writing stories for Mamas Uncut and managing PR + Marketing for Magnolia Bakery, based in New York City. On weekends, you can usually find me at a local park or playground pushing my daughter on the swings, “researching” the best almond croissants in Park Slope or launching into impromptu family dance parties at home, the sidewalk or, every once in awhile, a restaurant bathroom. I’m still trying to master the whole parenting thing, but I have learned that copious amounts of coffee, humor and humility are involved on a daily basis.
