I am an autistic guy with a message. I spent the first half of my life completely trapped in silence. The second - on becoming a free soul. I had to fight to get an education. Now I am a regular education student. I communicate by typing on an iPad or a letter board. My book, "Ido in Autismland" is now available on Amazon. It is an autism diary, telling the story of my symptoms, education, and journey into communication. I hope to help other autistic people find a way out of their silence too.

Cherishing Our Loved Ones
I was thinking about my grandma. She is a really brave and nice woman. In the weeks since her cancer was diagnosed she has gone through hard times. She had surgery to remove a tumor that was spreading the disease, and she is not young. Recovery is hard and she is getting stronger slowly. I know she is still living with cancer that was not removed so I know she is ill still. I think we need to make time to enjoy her brave and lovely presence as much as we can. We sometimes forget in our troubles and busy days to cherish our loved ones, but when one is sick it focuses this need. I love my Oma. Each time I see her is precious.
