Guess what?  I may feel I have lost my independence but I am still liberated.  I have the right and power to act, believe and express myself in my own choosing.  This is my new mantra.  I am going to live eat breathe it.  Maybe I could write a book and call it act, believe, express. It would surely shit all over that drivel 'eat pray love'. 
Today is April 1 and it is the start of autism awareness month.  So in each of my April blogs, I am going to give you some facts on Autism or on my boy.
Fact 1.  Autism is a lifelong disorder, no matter what you hear there is no cure.
This liberated chick today is going to enjoy a full day of liberated choices and maybe a little bit of fun.
Take care
