I'm going to be really blunt here...the last week or two, Autism has kicked my butt. Yes, I went back and edited that, it was originally not so nice. I'm going to whine for a minute or two, because it's my blog and I can. I don't know what in the H.E. double hockey sticks is going on with my son, but it is nothing short of the sweet kid I knew being abducted by a new reality series called, "Autism Gone Wild", and yes his Autism is showing. I'm pretty patient, except when I'm not, and I'm going bonkers.

We were a well oiled machine. What happened? Can I blame it on global warming? No? Alright then. Here's the final clincher. He has a new stim. It's a throaty, coughish, clearing of the throat thing that I can only describe as annoying the crap out of me. What gives? I'm checking our food, nothing new. Who gave him a spoonful of gluten? Come forward and I'll spare your life. Somethings amiss and I have to figure it out. My best guess at this point is a GFCF withdrawal, then add in the food pickiness and it's all a domino effect from there; or someone is feeding him soy intravenously.
I would appreciate feedback from any of you parents with kiddos on the Spectrum, especially where the stimming is concerned. Did your kids pick up new ones as they aged? More? Less? We were down to one, now he's adding....I don't like it one bit. Oh, and I don't like it. Did I mention not a happy camper...me or him.
