I totally understand, first hand how difficult it is having a child with autism. I understnad what is is like changing the poopy pants of my 6 year old (almost, but not quite trained) I know what it is like dealing with their irrational fears, their over-sensitivity to noise. Their sheer panic when they get sick, throw up, have a bloody nose. I understand their poor eating habits and few preferred choices. I understand the frustration of having my son follow me everywhere I go, to the bathroom even, because he doesn't know how to amuse himself. The chirping, the hand flapping, the stimming. The tantrumming in public. The lack of understanding the general public has. I do not, have not, never will tell a parent that they caused their child's autism. I believe that genetically we are all slightly different and the medical community has to begin to understand that medicine and the practice thereof is not "one size fits all" including Vaccines. I believe that some of us are more susceptable to toxins, both environmentally and medically. Obviously this natural susceptablity runs in my husbands family as well because both my son and his cousin are AUtistic. and my son's other cousin was one of theose children who had seizures following vaccines, although he is not Autistic himself. I understand the day to day stress is hard, but you can't blame, well intentioned people for your stress, especially since they experience it (Perhaps differently) everyday as well. We are family here, with differnt experiences and knowledge to share. We can all benefit from each other.

BUT.... I feel like my visits are not what they use to be. He...
I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? 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...
