If It's To Be, It's Up To MeMy little boy has many of the signs of autism. He's not quite three. We are on track for getting a diagnosis, early intervention, and whatever else is available. People are very keen to tell you how far the help has come in recent years, and it has. I'm very grateful for that.
But there is an area of this that is difficult to find help with. There are many stories available, such as Impossible Cure (I'm yet to read this), of children that have been 'cured' of austim with physical interventions, such as diet, vitamins and minerals, and healing damadge intestinal lining. These stories keep me going daily. They do not stop me seeking medical help, they are additional to it.
But while the stories are available, very little help appears to be available, as you meander your way through some of these things.
If there is anyone else out there that is striving for an 'impossible cure' - for whatever: depression, mental illness, obesity, I dont care - come and join me. Maybe we can support each other through it? share ideas etc.
