Was updating records in school. Many new kids have joined and all their case histories have to be documented and filed away for future reference: the medicines they take, the delivery process, the seizures, the progress or arrest of disability ... everything has to be recorded. And the stuff I read was .... sad.
There's this cute kid, am really fond of him, he's autistic. He lives in his own world... he speaks but he cannot speak to us, he cannot socialise. One moment he is laughing a happy glowing lively look in his face, the next moment he is screaming and crying, like he is being tormented by unseen spirits. All this because he is autistic. And while going through his files, saw that his parents had tried to abort him. The mom had taken some abortion pills, but she did not complete the prescribed dosage.
There's another boy small kid, round 4, who was probably normal, but he got into trouble during the birth process, the doctor employed forceps and that damaged his head. He too can hardly walk.
There is another small girl, who has severe problems. She shakes a lot and she cannot walk. Her whole body just keeps shaking, constant spasms ... and she has no speech. She has a condition called dystonia. Dystonia is a neurological movement disorder characterized by involuntary muscle contractions, which force certain parts of the body into abnormal, sometimes painful, movements or postures. Here, her parents blood group was not compatible somethin to do with the Rh factor. They had her and then two years later they had another girl and she too has started showing the same symptoms.
