A story of a child’s struggles with Downs syndrome, autistic catatonia, bipolar disorder and PTSD


The pre symptoms before confirmed medical diagnosis are detailed along with medication trials and side effects. Robbed of speech by age three, he was unable to express his problems. Actual documents from psychiatric tests and letters written to find help for him are included. The many hilarious and some dangerous public adventures Eli takes us on gives humor to the book.


The private journals of Eli covers twenty-two years of his life struggles with Downs syndrome, autistic catatonia, bipolar affective disorder and PTSD. I wrote each night  in a notebook as a release. Unknowing these private thoughts would be published in a book, I wrote whatever I felt at the time. Some things not so nice, but all true.


This is not a typical,”I am the parent of a disabled child book” I give insight of my personnel thoughts of my child, my view of the world concerning how others view him, and the multitude of legalities parenting such a child. Humorous stories, dangerous situations and detailed accounts of each disorder.


Eli is one of several known in the world to have the combined diagnosis, making it difficult to treat. His medical condition was featured as a graduating thesis for an Ohio State University student. His final medication cocktail takes nearly two years to complete.


He functions each day, legally high as a kite, but no longer goes into the world of catatonia for months, instead it is only for minutes. He sleeps through the night and works seven hours a day/5 days per week. He no longer has hallucinations nor dangerous actions.
