Ok, I admit, I am fired up this morning. Did you hear the news? Autism is now tied to obesity. Happy F-g Monday. That’s so funny because I was never overweight at all until I battled all of this depressing and crazy nonsense I deal with on a daily basis. I actually think rather than saying that if you are obese, you are more likely to have a kid with autism, it’s if your kid has autism, you are more likely to become obese from all of the self-medicating with food we do. I know they are not talking about me; I still am trying to get over the stigma of the “older moms” are more likely to have a kid with autism. It’s just another day in paradise. It feels like when you watch the news and you find out the local ax murderer is Jewish. Yikes, that is embarrassing; someone from our tribe was horrific and it’s just another reason to dislike Jews.
Don’t get me wrong, trying to figure out links and causes, that’s all good and necessary info but can we focus on finding these kids jobs, figuring out where they are going to live, funding good educational programs? GRRRR. They only studied 500 people. Well this whole stinking country is overweight, so guess what, of course obese moms are going to have kids with autism. The population is obese. Perhaps if my spanx weren’t so tight this morning, I could’ve taken the news better, but it just seems so dumb to me.
In any event, it is still Autism Awareness month and I will try to get myself together and focus on what is important. We have our walk this weekend and we are raising money and awareness. Time for breakfast!
