I was very depressed back in September when Mickie turned 10, because of the lack of progress I had seen and on top of that he was becoming anorexic, loosing his hair and was becoming very violent towards himself and others. He had not slept through the night in over nine years.
Turned out that he just needed better nutrition and his hair has grown back with a vengeance and even his sister is jealous of his hair now. His aggressiveness was nothing more than his way to cope with pain in his digestive system.
I took that sadness and I turned it around. I started being more proactive. I went to this website: http://www.generationrescue.org and there I found stories of hope and recovery. They also had a list of rescue angels, which are parents just like us who are recovering their children. They will walk you through it.
I know that you must think it's too late, because your son is not little anymore or maybe you think that the window of opportunity has closed, but I am here to tell you it's not to late!
Mickie said Mama yesterday for the first time in nine years. It can happen to your son or daughter too. With digestive enzymes, Probiotics, multivitamins, multi-minerals and diet modifications most Autistic kids and even older ones can have a better quality of life.
You can reverse many of the worse symptoms. So they are still autistic, but at least they can continue to be who they are, without pain and frustration.
