  • Why women cry

    Why are you crying?" he asked his Mom. "Because I'm a woman" she told him.
    "I don't understand," he said. His Mom just hugged him and said, "And you never will…"


    Later the little boy asked his father, "Why does mother seem to cry for no reason?"
    "All women cry for no reason" was all his dad could say…


    The little boy grew up and became a man, still wondering why women cry…
    Finally he put in a call to God; when God got on the phone, the man said,
    "God, why do women cry so easily?"


    God said…
    "When I made woman she had to be special. I made her shoulders strong enough to carry the weight of the world; yet gentle enough to give comfort…
    I gave her an inner strength to endure childbirth and the rejection that many times comes from her children…
    I gave her a hardness that allows her to keep going when everyone else gives up and take care of her family thorugh sickness and fatigue without complaining…
    I gave her the sensitivity to love her children under any and all circumstances, even when their child has hurt them very badly…


    This same sensitivity helps her to make a child's boo-boo feel better and shares in their teenagers anxieties and fears…
    I gave her strength to carry her husband through his faults and fashioned her from his rib to protect his heart. I gave her wisdom to know that a good husband never hurts his wife, but sometimes tests her strengths and her resolve to stand beside him unfalteringly. I gave her a tear to shed, it's hers exclusively to use whenever it is needed. It's her only weakness…
    It's a tear for mankind…"

  • Autism Poem

    I am Ethan.
    You may not understand me, or the way I feel today.
    You may not understand my reasoning for things I do or say.

    The reasons why I'm so loud and say things over & over again,
    Why I run so differently or lose my homework every now & then.

    I write my letters backwards and sometimes numbers too,
    and when in a conversation, I'll say "Guess what" 100 times to you.

    Too much noise, light, or excitement can set me in a spin.
    I don't like the way these pants feel rubbing against my skin.

    I try to be good, but sometimes it's hard to control,
    I have to do it, it's an impulse, I don't always do what I'm told.

    Ketchup, Ranch and BBQ sauce on everything I eat,
    sometimes I have days that I just can't sit still in my seat.

    I like to talk a lot even when it's out of turn,
    my mind plays tricks on me and interrupts what I'm trying to learn.

    Sit up straight, wipe my face, and play ever so soft,
    some of these things I have trouble with and I usually lose my train of thought.

    I didn't mean to spill the milk mom, or slam the door so hard,
    everyone else is done with their homework, I don't know where to start?

    My heart's as big as gold, my feelings get hurt too,
    I get sad, cry and have bad days just like you.

    My brain works differently than other girls and boys,
    but one thing always holds true, I can give your life so much joy.

    I get frustrated so easily and my hand won't work that way,
    I don't understand why those other kids won't let me come over and play.

    Please don't think of me any differently or love of me any less,
    I'm just like other kids and trying to do my best.

    I am very special in my own unique way, and every moment with me
    you'll never have a dull day.

  • PDD-NOS

    Pervasive Developmental Disorder - Not Otherwise Specified (PDD-NOS)

    Pervasive Developmental Disorder, Not Otherwise Specified (PDD-NOS) is a 'subthreshold' condition in which some - but not all - features of autism or another explicitly identified Pervasive Developmental Disorder are identified. PDD-NOS is often incorrectly referred to as simply "PDD." The term PDD refers to the class of conditions to which autism belongs. PDD is NOT itself a diagnosis, while PDD-NOS IS a diagnosis. The term Pervasive Developmental Disorder - Not Otherwise Specified (PDD-NOS; also referred to as "atypical personality development," "atypical PDD," or "atypical autism") is included in DSM-IV to encompass cases where there is marked impairment of social interaction, communication, and/or stereotyped behavior patterns or interest, but when full features for autism or another explicitly defined PDD are not met.

    It should be emphasized that this ''subthreshold'' category is thus defined implicitly, that is, no specific guidelines for diagnosis are provided. While deficits in peer relations and unusual sensitivities are typically noted, social skills are less impaired than in classical autism. The lack of definition(s) for this relatively heterogeneous group of children presents problems for research on this condition. The limited available evidence suggest that children with PDD-NOS probably come to professional attention rather later than is the case with autistic children, and that intellectual deficits are less common.
