About this blog

The title of this blog is “Accidental Autism” because:

  1. My daughters autism came by “accident”. I did not cause this by being a refrigerator mother, by not breast feeding long enough, or by willfully exposing her to toxic chemicals, alcohol, or drugs.
  2. Many accidents occur whenever she is around; especially in the pickle aisle at the grocery store. (Why do they have to place pickles all over the store where they do not belong?)
  3. She still occasionally has accidents of the toileting variety, especially when anxious and stressed or sick.
  4. Perhaps someone will accidentally find a cause and a cure for her form of autism when they are least expecting it.

  3. Thanks for visiting Life Love and Lyricality!! I love what I see here on your blog…you’ll have seen that my daughter has Rett Syndrome so the world of disability is a familiar one. Keep up the great work!
