Sorry guys, don't understand what happened with the format on that last post. I tried twice. Here is just my response. Not contacting them is not synonymous with giving up on him nor does it have to be. The bond you made is real and even if you never see him or speak to him again, the energy between...

:( It was INCREDIBLY unfair to you.[/quote] So, where do I go from here? I made a promise to this child to never give up on him, no matter what. Yes it may have been stupid of me to promise this, but I did it because I never though they'd move away. I messaged the mom to let her know that the mento...

I'm sorry you're going through all of this and I agree what most others have said. However, I'd like you to think of the mother's situation from a different perspective. To do that I need to explain a little of my last few years. I moved home abruptly when my mom became deathly ill. We spent about ...

First of all, Autistics don't have to be nomverbal to be very severe and some Autistics who might not struggle severely can also be nonverbal. We need to stop equating nonverbality with severity. Secondly, you should be able to blog about anything you want. As long as your blog is not hurting others...

Yes. That is probably my biggest struggle. It is very difficult and even sometimes impossible for people to believe me. Fortunately I have excellent therapists and doctors that do but I had to fire a lot of them to finally get the ones that I respect and who respect me. It also took many years to fi...

It is interesting in what we take for granted as being normal is not normal for other people. I find this realization to be frustrating all the time. Like, I know people lie, and are dishonest, and duplicitous, etc. But *I* am not like that if I can help it, and it really infuriates me that me bein...

Yes. I think that is why we can sometimes miss very important and even critical medical issues.

I used to think that whatever issues I had were completely unique and no one else had them as past doctors did not seem to know what the issues were and when I tried to describe things they kept jumping to conclusions which were not the same as the symptoms I was getting. It is only since I have jo...

Wait are you serious about being the only one with the disability or were you being sarcastic about autism? I just have a undefined condition outside my autism and mental issues, so was just curious about if you are serious about having some weird condition or just joking. I am serious. This is sep...

A friend of mine was quite blind, and was walking home one night when he came to a place where the sidewalk had been dug up, leaving a hole about 3m deep. Sawhorse type barricades had been used as a fence around the hole, with flashing amber lights on each. However, there was a gap wide enough that...

The other difficult thing about it is that if you have it, it's incredibly difficult to know you have it. Unfortunately the cause of death with this usually happens at such a young age that it's very difficult to catch. And it's not the kind of thing that parents will notice. The cause of death is p...
