AUTISM SUCKS, BUT LIFE DOESN'T HAVE TO...My oldest son, Ryan, was fourteen years old and still pooping in a diaper when I realized that my life would never fully be my own. I knew he would forever need me; forever need some form of care. The sleepless nights, crazy obsessions, ritualistic behaviors, temper tantrums, head banging, and even messy diapers all seemed endless. Autism was never going to leave me alone. It was going to haunt me until my dying day unless I decided to fight back somehow. Even on the worst of days, when tears seemed to be my only friend, I tried to find something to make me laugh, even a little. I tried to turn the wrong into something right, something laughable. Sometimes laughter is the best medicine, especially when you're laughing so hard, the tears are not only running down your face but also your leg. Dear Autism: One Parent's Journey is a realistic, down-to-earth, honest depiction of what it is like to raise a low-to-moderate functioning child with autism to adulthood. It wasn't always pretty, but it was always filled with love.
