I'm grateful for the gift of life, for this beautiful earth, for the visit of my daughter, who coauthored the meal today, for all the people at AoA who give us the best newspaper around, and for those heroic autism parents who love their children so much.

I am also grateful that my 53-year old autistic son still lives a group home. I (his aging mother) was warned last year that if he continues to break the rules, the Department of Mental Health (DMH) in Massachusetts can no longer guarantee him housing. The DMH mantra "recovery is real" means that help for substance abusers is their priority.

I can only pray that DMH will not discharge my son to the streets, which is their policy for the most seriously mentally ill, those for whom no recovery is possible.

I am thankful to still be among the breathing 10+ years past the age of life expectancy in the year I was born.

I am thankful also for the growing numbers of people pushing back against medical authority, working to promote meaningful research on the causes of autism, and ridiculing those who claim autism has always been as prevalent as it is now.


It got pretty bad this year.
Seems everything was just like seeing a car wreck in slow motion, and it is going to be a bad one when it ends----

SO; I made a list of what I was thankful for about a month ago. To my surprise it turned out to be a long list.

This coming January; the neurologist wants to retest my son for seizure activity, in a hospital setting for 3 to 5 days (doctor's aid said it will likely end up being just 2 days) EEG my son has not had one for 13 years. The neurologist wants - to see if seizures are still there, and perhaps to see about taking my son off of Keppra. Maybe.

Something to be thankful for is no seizures for 13 years. As for going off of Keppra; it makes him irritable.
Still I have Mixed feelings on this one, cause it took so long for the medical profession to understand he had epilepsy to begin with. It took so long, and so much horrible seizure activity going on during that time that 13 years ago; I would have put on my list that I was actually Thankful for at last the epilepsy diagnosis.
