Having a child changes EVERYTHING

Dear Special Nation citizens,

Here is what happened in year 2 of my 30-year marriage: the birth of my son Diego, who, over time, came to be diagnosed as autistic, bipolar and cognitively disabled (they called it “mental retardation” but I believe that’s no longer considered a PC term).

Anyhow, that’s the way I remember it.

Thank you for reading,


PS: I’m revisiting and writing about my marriage story in chronological order. Episode 1:

First Marriage, Then Baby
