Autism? How can that be?
This is my story of how it happens to be.
My Definition of “Autism”
When one day you wake up and find your baby is gone. Almost like a monster took your baby in the night. When they won’t look at you. When you can’t hold them. When they don’t want to be near you. When they stop playing with you. When they stop talking. When it seems they don’t hear you. They’re now picky eaters. They just won’t sleep. They twirl things constantly. They walk on tippy toes. They flap their arms. They don’t care what you want. They seem to ignore you but they aren’t really there. Laughing so hard you swear granny is there. Screaming themselves to sleep. Never social. It sometimes seems they have no soul.
These things could happen as your baby grows up and you may hear the words “AUTISM” right from the DOC. The craziest thing you will ever hear. What the bleep does that mean? I never heard of Autism except for the movie “Rainman”. Where did it come from? How did it get here? What does it mean?
The are stories of random thoughts and memories of Raising Autism by me.
