nightdweller: i do appreciate all of your input and i am only speaking for myself here, but lately you have been a bit hostile and now you are completely out of line. i am sorry if you have issues, but we all do. i am sorry if you cant deal in ways we understand. you should never, ever judge anyone. you have no clue as to what goes on in our lives no more then we know what goes on in your life. personally if i wanted to hear a bunch of medical terms for every little thing i wanted to learn i would spend every day at the doctors office :) i am sure you are very book smart and probably are very well educated in YOUR diagnosis and i love to read about different aspects of autism but please lets show some respect towards everyone here. none of us are here to be bashed for the way we take care of our children or to bash you for your opinion. i am here for support and common sense, hands on, experienced advise, not to be bashed for the descions i make that are in the best interest of my son and my family. to medicate is a very serious decision that is not taken lightly. my son has been happier for the last 6 months then he has ever been in his little life. he LAUGHS, he PLAYS, he LEARNS, it is slow but it is happening and it is a good thing. instead of 24/7 screaming and crying and fighting and hitting and the list goes on and on he is having a wonderful life and if meds is what is doing this then so be it. the one and only side effect he has is he EATS food now, whats so bad about that for a kid that had not eaten solid food in 3 yrs? please nightdweller, help us learn how we can help our kids without being so hostile, being on the spectrum makes you an expert on YOU. there are no two autistic kids alike. that is a FACT.

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...
