I have not ever been truly scared in my entire life. but, autism scares me. i know i am not suppose to feel this way, but i do. some days a strong regression shows in Phoenix. he becomes a different child when he drinks any type of cola beverage. Phoenix calls it brown liquid. after he drinks a sip he slips away. it almost a allergic reaction. he drops to the floor and starts spinning in circles like a demon possessed child. and he starts grinding his teeth... its strange. this beverage that most people have tasted once in their life, the bubbles, the yummy of it all. everyone enjoys a soda every once in a while. some people have this soda every single day. Phoenix, who i wish could be normal just a little bit, can not have even a taste. can you imagine no brown cola in your life? its pretty simple for most of us. Autism is not. Phoenix is not. being Crystal is not.
after just a sip it took Phoenix three days to recover. no more soda in the house for sure.
