The Autism Prayer

image

Dear Lord I beg today for peace
And will you please help with these?
Him to learn to brush his teeth,
Tie his shoes, and not to scream?
Speak with words that do not rhyme,
And tell him not to stress the time?
Lord I do not know your side,
But on my knees, Ive, learned to rise.

How do you sell an idea? How to you make people believe what your saying??? Hire a celebrity of coarse!  If Justin Bieber and Megan Fox decided to stand up for Autism…and promotes a hot new therapy….we are so gonna buy it! Right? So what happens if they say feeding them only bird poop is the answer? And we should crate train our autistic kids? (Hmm I might think on that one).  Now what if a “doctor” endorses this “cure” SIGN ME UP! Let’s be real…we are tired, scared and starved for information.  Even Thoe sometimes I fantasize about running away to Disneyworld alone…Im not going to throw Loud under a bus. There are terrible diseases out there. Diseases that make Autism look like a walk in the park.  Given a choice between polio and autism….Ill take the Autism thank you.  Vaccines can prevent them.  I had chicken pox last spring. My kids were vaccinated.  What kept me going through it was the pure anger. I kept thinking about some snot nose kid with anti vaccine parents…took their diseased brat to walmart to sneeze on stuff I then touched.  Ok so yes I realize that I should have been vaccinated too. But that was my fever induced alter personality.  Here is my thing. I work with children that are dying. These kids have horrible handicaps. It puts life into perspective.  A controversial shot can save your kids life.  Tell those loud mouth activist to stop spreading ignorance!

Who thought of that slogan?  Autism does NOT SPEAK….It screams! For hours on end! Today I was trying to explain the thing about using a blue porch light for Autism awareness to Boom.  Boom raised a very valid point….our neighbors do not need a visual aid to be aware we are affected by Autism. They have several hours of auditory reminders every day.

Even the Dogs are Lunatics!

Even the dogs are crazy here.  We are the proud pet humans of two dogs.  We shall call them Pinkie & The Brain….(yes Im SOOO original) I work 3rd shift.  So a few nights ago I get a call from Boom…its unusual to get a call so late…so Im worried.   Poor Boom was just about to fall into an exhaustion induced coma, when a loud thundering sound broke the silence.  It sounded like elephants running up and down the steps…..Boom jumped out of bed. He was panicked. He just got everyone to bed and the dogs all settled into their crates.  What the….? ! So he runs to the stairs….no one in sight….so he runs downstairs …..to greet two demon possessed dogs.  Pinkie (4 month old Shepard/lab mix) has broken his crate & escaped.  He had been running up & down the stairs like a cracked out,  furry version of flash….collecting toys and toilet paper…which he already had shredded…..and he managed to open The Brains crate (3 yr. Old miniature chihuahua) and she was in the middle of the room….jumping up in the air over & over…..I.swear…if I wasn’t so terrified of Nancy Grace eating my face off…..I would buy pepper spray….
