I've just read a blog where the writer was using a massive dollop of irony to highlight the confusing messages this day puts out. Is it a day? Is it a month? Is it universal or just created by Autism Speaks so they can continue to promote research into cures for autism? Is it light it up blue or is it rainbows and jigsaws? Yes it was written with sarcasm and irony and cutting edge humour but the response from one or two people was without a doubt vicious!
You see, I'm not autistic but I have a great deal of autism in my life. My world is deeply effected by the diagnosis of my children. I do not say that in a way to provoke pity but if you've read any of my blog you will know that its as much an emotional journey for me and lee as it is for my kids. Any parent of a child with any kind of special needs, medical history, behavioural problem, birth defect, brain damage or learning difficulties carries these diagnosis with them too. Sure thing, our life isn't impacted in the way our child's is but its still impacted. Lee and I live in the same house as "autism" and therefore we live, for now and probably for the foreseeable future, an autistic life.
