since dec '06 i have paid a lot of attention to anything and everything autism. it seems like every week there is a big deal about 'this or that is link to what causes autism'. God how I wish they would find the cause and a cure! I never see " this or that makes huge difference is dealing with autism" or " try this to help redirect your child with autism during a meltdown". To be honest from what I have read they are no closer to the cause or cure then I am and I just wish they would focus on TODAY! on what it takes to raise a child with autism. on what it takes to support a child/adult with autism. on what it costs to get an autistic child all the intervention that HEALTH OFFICIALS claim (tried and true) will make the childs life a little eaiser. I wish there was a written in stone cause for autism and a written in stone cure for autism, but since we do not have that, why not sink atleast some of that research money into the lives of the people that have autism to make their lives a little better then what they are. I am sorry I am venting but I just feel like alot of gov. money is being spent on things that we already know or things that do not matter when it can be spent on the 'here and now'

My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
