    The Nerve Of Some People

    It's Sometimes Worse When They Look 'normal'

    It is challanging, especially when you're just coming to terms with you child's unexpected limitations (temporary or permanent) and diaganosis yourself. But I've seen this one a couple of times, up close - with my brother and now my son. Some children can look physically...

    Personally, I Would Have Preferred Stares To The Beatings.

    Ah, dislike of the unlike, how very human, which is one reason I don't feel like I entirely belong to the species. Oh, was I an easy target. Hearing impaired, mildly autistic, and not the most masculine of boys growing up. Why oh why do people take such joy in tormenting those...

    Some Musings.

    Here are some things/advice for folks that I have found to be helpful. 1)Just walk up to me, I don't bite and I'm not contageous. 2)If I see someone staring, I will engage them in a friendly manner, it gets the staring to stop. I've even made a few friends this way! 3)Humor...
