My husband brought home a Discover magazine which has a very intense article about autism.
Much of it concerns the possiblity that many cases of autism are caused by an interaction between genes and environmental toxicity. The article also has a lot to say about DAN doctors, chelation, dietary approaches and supplements.
I have mostly focused on behavioral approaches (PECS, Floortime, etc.) so far, because I find the biomedical approaches so overwhelming. I did take B. off of dairy products for three weeks, but I almost felt that it had a negative effect.
It's so easy for me to get caught up in thinking "Am I doing the right thing?", "Should I be doing more research?" and on and on. I know that getting really anxious does not help anyone, so I need to calm down, think things over, and make decisions gradually.
It doesn't help that my husband so far wants me to make all the decisions, because I have my masters in Special Ed. That is too much responsibility for me. Sorry if you are reading this, honey, but it's how I feel.
Just had to vent. Having a negative moment.
