The most likely cause of the autism epidemic is that autism has become fashionable – a popular fad diagnosis.
Fashionable? Give me an effin' break.
Brian's stimming, flapping, screaming, not-talking, tapping, OCDness, night wakings, bolting, and everything else that goes with it is definitely starting a fad around here. He's got kids lining up to ask him for playdates. Other parents can't stop asking me how to get their kids to be so freakin' fashionable. Kids want to be like him and parents wish they could have my anxiety level and dark under-eye circles.
This just deserves a good old fashioned eye roll....
