An Em Post About Medicine: A friends’ response to Cassius’s Concerns about Medications

Jenn is one of my favorite contributors, and I am in absolute Awe of her daughter, Emelie.

Emelie, and her Mama, are some of my favorite people that I have met through the online autism blogosphere. To get to know more about them, you have GOT to check out their blog — they are the BEST EVER!

  1. Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just your
    articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and everything.
    Nevertheless think of if you added some great images or videos to give your posts more, “pop”!
    Your content is excellent but with images and video clips, this blog could undeniably
    be one of the most beneficial in its niche.

    Excellent blog!
