Queen for a day

Having a child with autism is nothing like having a child with cancer. If you have no idea what I'm talking about, there's a pile of bitter vomit over at AoA. Thanks to Countering Age of Autism and Gonzolog for the link.

Holy fuck, woman! Get some damned perspective. And some therapy, stat. Yes, it's harder than some people realize to parent a child with autism. Yes, there are extra expenses you didn't consider. Speaking of dead children and mourning for your very-much-alive child that is "dead" in your eyes at age eight is just, just... wow. I think you get the new refrigerator and the crown!


  1. Absolutely pithy, Nostrum! Well done. :-)

  2. Thank you. I'm going to print out her post and frame it, and whenever I start to throw myself a pity party, I'm going to look at that thing and snap out of it in two seconds, I swear.

  3. Sounds like a great idea. Ought to work wonders. Bad Apple (Robin Nemeth)came in this evening and topped her, darn near, so you might want to frame her comment, too. Now even parents of dead kids have it easier than parents of children with autism. How's that for insanely inappropriate?

  4. wonderfully put nostrum! Love the clip too..:)

  5. Bloody Nora. I bet her daughter feels so loved.
