Description: 

It’s been at least five years since I’ve been in a state of severe depression.  An incident that happened a couple of weeks before Christmas 2011 seemed to signal the start of the patch of depression I find myself in currently, and it also points to one of the causes of my depression: my brother has autism and being his sister has not always been easy. This post takes on the issue of violence between children suffering from autism and their siblings.
