"No Map to This Country" - compelling new autism memoir
I am the mother of two autistic children, and the author of a new autism memoir titled "No Map to This Country." Here's a very short excerpt to give you a feel for the tone:
"Part of the torture of autism is that the future is so impossibly unsure. Your child might become a fully functioning member of society and appear no different than anyone else, even if he does have to look at mouths instead of eyes and can't stand to give his own kids a bath. Or, he might be so violent that he requires institutionalization...Either way, you're expected to work your ass off for it."
For a much longer excerpt, you can visit my website, www.JenniferIsACommonName.com
. Our experiences with dietary treatments for autism play a big role in the story, and I am also the owner of the large recipe website www.theGFCFlady.com
I'd be very happy to answer any questions about the book, our experiences, or the things that worked for us (they were different for each child.) I will also respond to PMs if you want to keep personal questions off the board. Thanks very much for offering this great forum!
