Hi, new to this board...

wendylyndersJune 15, 2008

My name is Wendy. I am the mother of three... 20, 17 and 3.

I guess I feel the need to be here as my son has autism and is in the hospital now. He will be in a group home/ assisted living when he leaves the hospital.

I miss him everyday. I am having a really hard time with it. It just isn't supposed to be this way.

We are just now trying to make others aware of autism as many people don't understand it. Also, one in 150 children born today are diagnosed with autism, so it is a huge number. Awareness and research is a must.... but support for those that have it is just as important.

Looking forward to getting to know everyone here.

I am so sorry. There are so many sad things that happen in life. Why is your dear son in the hospital? Is it connected with his autism or an unrelated illness?

What would be your preferred situation for him rather than the group home?

Sorry to hear this. If I had it to do over I would never let my children have the shots they give children, because of the aluminum and mercury in the shots. I read a report of tests they did in California. They took a certain area and gave the usual children's shots, but they left out the mercury and those young children did not have problems they are having now. Our grandson has one of the problems and he has to take meds or he can't go to school.
