Breaking The Silence of Autism


I”m a husband and father of 3 boys. Our oldest is 10 years old and autistic. Our youngest is in the process of being diagnosed autistic also. I first met Lizze and Gavin about 9 years ago. We spent the past 9 years in court fighting her ex-husband and ex-in laws. It was a very difficult time of our lives. We were going to court in the small town where her ex-husband lived. It was a corrupt environment where the judge hearing the case was her ex-husbands uncle.

Her ex-husband was an abuser and addict. Gavin was also abused He never wanted Gavin but fought just to get back at Lizze.  Long story short we finally won in Dec 2009. The court of appeals ruled that our rights were grossly violated and that the court had abused it power.  That was it.

We paid a very heavy price along the way. We are struggling with how to move on. We have been left decimated.

  1. Dear Lizzie,
    I am so sorry to hear of your migraines – I also went through the same issues to find out I had TMJ, my jaw is out of alignment with my teeth/bite. Sounds nuts, but it can create all sorts of havoc. You may wish to find a dentist who specializes in TMJ – couldn’t hurt and they can help if that is the cause! The other thing I did was have my D-3 levels tested as I was also diagnosed with fibromyalgia (I didn’t believe them) – turns out I was D-3 deficient. After only a few days of taking higher doses of the vitamin, all the aches and pains were gone. The other thing I did was have a blood test done for food allergies – turns out I cannot have most grains and dairy which was also suspected of the aches, and severe headaches.
    Best of luck to you and your family.
    xo, Andrea

  2. I applaud you for your blog and creating a forum for parents of autistic children to voice their experiences. I don’t have an autistic child, but I have had other mental health issues with my child. It’s good to be real and let people know that life is not always the fairy-tale version. Hope you keep posting.

  3. Good morning,
    Just stumbled upon your blog by chance, and I wanted to let you know that it’s really moved me. I have a niece who is severely autistic, and am always interested in reading about autism.
    Keep up the good work with your blog.
