Moon Over Autism August 24, 2008

Autism is chaos.

In setting up this blog, I was tempted to choose relaxing themes with soft color schemes to off-set the chaos. Something easy on the tired eyes of stressed-out parents of children with autism. But none of the standard willowy offerings seemed right. Then I found it…the moon.

Look at it up in the top right corner there. It’s perfect.

After all, it made me think about how we’re up all night so many times dealing with “night terrors”, bedwetting, or other sleep-stealing conspiracies.

It also made me think of how we’re all affected by the phases of the moon. Especially the full moon. My son’s chiropractor/naturopath, who specializes in treating children with autism, says that when the moon is full, his office is always full of youngsters whose parents say their autism behaviors are suddenly so friggin bad they can’t take it! Ever notice that?

But the main reason I went with the moon for my blog is because–like a cheesy line in a movie–we are all living under the same moon. Just like we are all living this challenging and often isolated life.

So, when you feel alone, remember StimTalk is here for you. And the friends you’ll meet here are sitting under the same moon. 

And we’re also wishing on the same star…

What a fantastic idea! The moon is perfect–and this blog is absolutely necessary. It’s the perfect refuge for the weary.
Keep writing!!

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I like your “cheesy” line about the moon. Also, the difference in kids’ behavior during a full moon is totally true.
