Because having autism is worse! And poor me! Waah waah waah! This book "is a father’s gripping, real glimpse of his family’s struggle to survive with two children with Autism. The book intimately, honestly, and powerfully, addresses the emotional, social, financial, political and medical aspects of a family fighting for their very existence. Learn about the struggle, the epidemic and Help Families In Need!"
You know... sometimes I've observed that people with cancer get a LOT more love and support, and guess what? Autism never goes into remission. It can be very hard and isolating to deal with certain behaviours and challenges. It really can. You don't "get it" unless you've been through it. I've been mad when I've seen people at church or whatever get a lot more attention and practical help over a hangnail than our family got with our autistic children.
But never, never would I wish my kids had cancer. That is such a twisted and sick thought that this author should have run to his therapist instead of writing it down for his children to see someday. He should be ashamed of himself and shunned by everyone.
And I'll tell you something else. It's not even a comparison. My child could easily get lost or die with this condition, yes. But it is not the same thing as enduring painful treatments day after day, wondering if your child is going to make it. Wondering how you're going to pay for it. And no, don't even compare ABA therapy to chemo, k?
You can look at a preview of the book here. At the bottom of the page, Amazon lets me know that people who viewed this book? Also viewed "Semenology: the Semen Bartender's Handbook." I... didn't click the link. Nor yet am I providing it to my readers. You understand.
Twisted, I'm telling ya...
