I Say Dyspraxia, You Say Dysfunctional.


Send good karma, prayers and positive vibes...
Read the Autism Insurance Bills being voted on today in Michigan.  Type in:   414-415  bill search box to read content.

Michigan Legislature - Home


All good.  I decided to see if other votes are on the table for our humble cause.

I typed in key word "autism". 

Bill 050: Insurance; health; coverage for autism spectrum disorder, mental health, and substance abuse treatment; provide that coverage cannot be more restrictive than coverage for medical treatment. Amends 1956 PA 218 (MCL 500.100 - 500.8302) by adding sec. 3406s. 

Most adults have been touched by substance abuse at least once.  We’ve all seen it played out in movies, on uncles, neighbors, friends. It’s a grotesque, heartbreaking experience.  I’ve seen the ravages of substance abuse on family.  I’ve felt the dysfunctional environment of growing up in the shadow of addiction. I know MANY who have had/should have substance abuse treatment and wholly support that effort… no way

…but REALLY??????

Who wrote this bill –

are they on crack?

Must we be in the same bill, category? 


Autism = Addiction?

No comparison. 

Our kids don't choose autism.

Our kids can’t just say no!

Our kids can’t check in and dry out.

There’s no patch for autism.

Our kids can't go cold turkey.


I’m flaming and irked, and not from a hot flash.


Meanwhile, back to the song…

I say Apraxia, you say Amphetamine.

Let’s call the whole thing off.


NO, no, no.  Whatever it takes.

Pray for the bills to pass. 

Then pass the pipe.
