Sanjay Gupta did a small segment on Autism on C.N.N. this morning. So small, it is not even on the web page. I waited with baited breath...I have always had a great respect for Dr. Gupta as he seems to "get it" in the same way I do in so many things. I was waiting to be disappointed...
He had on a family, whose oldest son was Aspergers (post PDD-NOS), and whose oldest daughter had a more severe form of autism. He mentioned the one in 166, but gave no reasons except doctors think it is genetic, and ............................
No tug at the heartstrings because of the difficulty for parents...No "scarey" pictures to imply trajedy but realistic ones...I'm going to have to paraphrase because the link isn't up but, the father ACTUALLY IMPLIED HIS CHILDREN WERE A BLESSING!!! THE AUTISTIC ONES, I'M TELLIN' YA, NOT THE "NORMAL" ONES...AND THE THING THAT REALLY GOT ME WAS NO LINK TO ALLISON'S FRIGHT-SITE!
What the hell is wrong with these people (tongue in cheek...)?
Dr. Gupta, I still love you!
