This is an apology to everyone with an Autistic child or who is Autistic. I personally think it's fine to have as many kids, with or without disabilities, as you can physically, mentally, emotionally & financially handle.
I was just using Karl's argument back at him and his choices.
I personally think, that any responsible parent to be,would not want to pass on their medical conditions to their unborn children. Why put a child through the same hell as we have to go through now? They are innocent people. Not knowing something about your health is damaging to your family's health now and in the future times. Celiac Disease keeps on spreading because, we keep having children and knowing we have this disease within us.
So why did you have 3 children if this is how you really feel? You knew you were sickly when you had them. You may not have known what was wrong with you, but you knew something was horribly wrong. You knew the first one had Autism but you had a second & third one? You knew you were on disability and had no way to support the third one, but you made another.
Your situation sounds like a complication of Celiac Disease, to me. Did you look up the list of complications associated with the Celiac Disease. Remember you were born with this disease. I do not know how long you have been treating this disease of yours but, it sounds like some complications are setting in on you. Check out the list and see if any of those condtions fits your situation, OK.
Are you for real? Do you know what endometriosis is, Karl? I think it's a disease you can't have.
People are born with a chance of getting Celiac, they aren't born with full blown Celiac. Occasionally, babies have it but it's not like being born with a cleft palate or a heart murmur.
There is a DNA test that shows who the dad is. It has nothing to do with Celiac. There is a different genetic test to show if you have the genes that can cause Celiac. Everybody is born with thier genes, true. Read around on here. Just because you have a gene for Celiac, doesn't mean you will get it. I saw something that said like 30% of the people have the gene but only about 1% have Celiac.
I don't think the military owes you for being sick from something they didn't cause. I think the mom owes you child support.
I think I said to you before that I didn't understand why you think the kids can only eat packaged stuff that says gluten free. Seriously? He never eats ice cream, apples, popcorn, Fritos, cheese, peanut butter, carrots, raisins, grapes, tacos, hamburgers, beef stew, hot dogs, green beans, corn, fruit snacks, M&Ms, chocolate milk, fruit smoothies?
Not sure if he can have milk but I included it. I remember you aren't supposed to have milk but you drink it anyway.
I have been reading along. It sounds like you are too sick to deal with all the other stuff. Tell the adult son to get his own place and let him decide if he wants to be gluten free or not. He is a grown-up he should live his own life. HIs bringing gluten into your home would be one less thing to worry about.
The younger son has too many problems for someone as sick as you to handle. Where is his mom? Maybe she can take him. I don't see how you can take care of him properly and it isn't fair to you, as sick as you are, to have to deal with all his stuff.
My mom won't admit she should eat gluten free but she is old and has her own house so I can't force her. I can not allow her to eat gluten at my house.
Its a chapter out of a text book. It does seem to talk about different "bugs" that are present in different diseases but maybe you could highlight the part about our immune sytems aren't attacking us. Its pretty hard to read all that with out a medical degree.
