Herbal tea to the rescue


Harish loves tea and we are trying to keep him on the GFCF ( Gluten free Casein free) diet. This herbal tea seemed like Gods sent. He loves it and it claims to be good for stress etc etc .. It has Basil leaves (Tulsi ) and with a tinge of lemon it tastes good. Its available from organic India. I am glad we got it for him, at least puts a smile on his face. With so many forbidden things in his diet list, the already difficult life is made worse. I keep looking out for things that he can have and also enjoy it without any side effects.

Autistic Parents !

In the world of autism, a parent realises the struggle and the pain. But its the silent autistic child who goes through much more and with no way to crib about it. I felt I had cured my sons autism when i cured my perceptions and expectations of him. I see so much love in his eyes and how he silently says so much to me. I am thankful I am a changed person because of him. I might have never seen myself but for him. I was a professional, a scientist, an engineer, a nice human being, a witty person, a promising student and so many more things that I now realise is not the true me. But for Autism I would have left this world without knowing myself. I am grateful to him and hence i say " Autistic Parents" - These are parents who dont want to accept the truth, curse their fate and want to make their children "normal" so that they can rub shoulders with the other " successful parents". If we have no Autistic parent our children will all be normal.
