Though I'd like to take a moment to shout out to whatever drunken baboon formatted this thing. It looks like ass on my kindle. #HellMother
With that said, let's get started.
Rather than taking time to comfort their son, #HellMother and her husband (henceforth known as Keith) are taking potshots at each other.
"No, of course we won't do this again! We'll just keep him locked away at home his whole life and never go anywhere!"
In his wisdom Keith calls it selfish and wrong, and I can only agree.
My husband doesn't even WORK forty hours a week. Christ on a bike, no wonder this poor kid is terrified of everything. He doesn't get to have a life. #HellMother
There is nothing compassionate about ignoring child abuse! #HellMother
The plane is in the air, #HellMother. It is way too fucking late.
DON'T EVER THROW AN AUTISTIC CHILD INTO A NEW EXPERIENCE WITHOUT AN ATTEMPT TO EXPLAIN!
But the way she describes him as "whimpering" and "dazed" sounds more like shutdown to me.
Also I'm just really uncomfortable with this
Translation: I'll keep putting my child through this terror until he handles it the way I dictate he should, because what he wants doesn't matter to me.
I utter what you would not dare think. -- Fyodor Dostoyevsky
I mean what can you even say in the face of such pretension?
This means using terms like "toll of autism", "brutality of autism", etc.
The irony of this is making me try to do the owl thing. #HellMother
You do not experience autism, #HellMother. You experience the results of your abuse of your autistic child. You CANNOT experience autism as you are not autistic.
Why should it matter if a toddler doesn't do exactly the right things in gym or music class? (WHY IS HER TODDLER IN GYM AND MUSIC CLASSES?)
At this stage of life your toddler is not even as clever as a cockatoo. Stop putting shit on him that isn't there to begin with. #HellMother
If your child did not bring you joy, it was because you REFUSED to see him as human. #HellMother
There was a reason. THERE IS ALWAYS, ALWAYS A REASON, you vile cesspit dwelling shit weasel. WE ALWAYS HAVE A REASON. #HellMother
I would stomp and yelp and pull away because it hurt like hell. But my mom was convinced I was just
But you know what? I still hate combing my hair, because it tangles up and it hurts like hell to try to get them out. My scalp is just really sensitive, but she would rather believe I was throwing a tantrum.
Sound familiar? #HellMother
"Friends had no idea how much I had grown to despise their children, simply because they were normal."
I hope that if they'd known, they would've stopped being your friend. #HellMother
You brought that on yourself, #HellMother. You refused to see you child as human.
That's on you, #HellMother
What I need instead is for doctors to stop recommending these expensive and generally abusive therapies. #HellMother
That's a bunch of lies, and if parents would only listen to us, they'd know.
My heart breaks for Zack. He was forced into a life of terror because #HellMother hated who he was.
There is no cure for autism. There is only how you interact with your child, the effort you make to understand the world from their point of view. If you are not prepared for a child to act in ways you did not
If that's what you want, you will never find joy in your child. #HellMother
Well, yes. That's how it works. Even if he became more verbal, he would still be autistic. It doesn't go away. It's part and parcel of who he is. #HellMother
She literally wrote this book hoping to destroy any and all progress we've made in the fight against ignorance in the autism narrative. #HellMother
She is so firmly entrenched in her hatred of autism that she would write a book that will stifle ANY chance any of us have at being happy because it doesn't fit HER beliefs. #HellMother
Thanks to everyone who kept my spirits up through this hell and have followed along. I couldn't have done it alone.
And know that I am never, ever going to stop fighting for us, for our voices and for our lives.
