Well Christmas is now over. We did well, but now reality is biting again. Either I stop blogging altogether or I try to write about what is going on here without being explicit. Because there is nothing else. Our lives have mostly shrunk to these four walls, which means that there is very little of interest to write about, and autism is the one thing that dominates all our lives.
What happened two days before Christmas I cannot tell you, but it has left us all traumatised. Apart from a handful of friends and a promise of help from Irish Autism Action, most suggestions from professionals and others have all involved doing things to my son to control or compel him, or sending him away.
