(So one of the desperate housewifes of IDK where was talking today about her son having autism, but she kept saying, we are trying to "recover" him, and that really confused me, because the whole time am saying "well, hun where did he go?" Her son spoke before he digressed and that is what am guessing that she is talking about, my son never spoke, so idk what it is to hear my son say "i love you" like her's did. But I still think that she is being a bit , I don't want to say "dilusional" but like she is still stuck on her son before he started digressing, you know what I mean? I just found it really weird, because my son is my son, he just happens to be autistic, he just happens to be socially awkward (but how many of us aren't) he just happens to be non-verbal ( well i like to think of him as a great thinker) and he just happens to learn differently (not everyone learns the same).
And its amaizing how people think differently, some actually believe that by doing special diets and doing all this stuff their son is going to "come back" whatever that means. How can you fix a missplaced wire, or wrong fuse with a special diet??? Idk that is just me, what do you ladies think?)
This is what I wrote on CM today, because it really bothered me, and I wanted to know what the other "supermommies" as we call ourselfs think about this.
But seriously, I even twitted about it to @Anderson, where did the child go? he is still there, I just think your not really looking at him the way he is now. Just like a person that you met in HS, might not be the same way as an adult, maybe something drastic happened in their life and they changed it, for the better or worse. And I am a true believer that what my son has, was going to happen no matter what I did, not matter what I ate while I was pregnant, no matter how many times he cried as a child and I refused to pick him up and fall for his child manipulations!!
