Win a Cwtch

Autismum will be a year old on the 18th August. To celebrate, here’s a chance to win a cwtch from the Pwdin. Ok, I can’t send him but I can send a hand-made in Wales cwtch cushion (a cwtch is a snuggly cuddle) – I’ll make sure he gives it a big squeeze right before I pop it in the post.

To be in with a chance of winning, simply tell me in the comments section below or on my Facebook page or Twitter, which has been your favourite Autismum post (and why would be nice too). I’ll put the names of  everyone who responds  into a box and will video the Pwd –  the boy, the legend – himself drawing out the winner on Saturday.   Pob lwc.

    I want a cwtch!

    My favorite Autismum was the one in which you brought the MMS horrors to light and had the back and forth with Ms. MMS herself. The post was important because you brought attention to something we need to stop, and you also demonstrated how hateful the rhetoric and thinking about autistic people has become. I love when you fight for everyone. Nothing beats Autismum when she’s feisty!

      And I didn’t just pick that because it’s active right now. In fact, I didn’t even notice that until a second ago!

      Thank you – there’ll be a bit more of that later in the week.

    I loved the MMS post. It was close to home, as I, too, have an awesome Autist son. I am deeply offended by quacks trying to cure something with hazardous chemical substances, harming our children. You took them on, I salute you!

      Thanks Alit. I’ll be writing more about biomeddlers later this week xx

    It has to be Pwdin’s school video – he is so sweet in that video and looks like he’s so full of life and love.

      He’s too cute. I love the bit where he has his eye on another kid’s toast (about 41 sec in)

        When is his birthday? What’s on his wishlist?

    I agree about the school video. It made me feel like I know the little guys!

    I love all Pwd videos (and am still expecting one of him giggling at ducks!).

    I love your work against the Patriot “Nurse”.

    You’re faaaab!

      Thanks. I’m working on the ducks (I might have to get Pwd’s duck whistle out if I can find it) xx

    My favorite post was exposing the Patriot Nurse for her misinformation and fallacies. Healthcare professionals need to be held accountable for their actions, even ‘off-duty.’ And when a nurse is spreading mistruths and inaccuracies that can potentially harm the public, it’s important to stop that behavior.

      think her horrible video is back up. ugh!

    It’s so hard to pick just one! I loved your takedown of the Patriot “Nurse” (HA!), and your discussion of the MMS horror. I think my favorite, though, might be the one where you discuss having to rehome your dog, and the emotional reaction about that. I liked it not because I liked the mental struggle you discussed, but because it was such a gentle discussion of a difficult process.

      Thank you. I still miss the mutt!

    I’ll play.

    My favorite post would have to be the epic pwnage of the “Patriot Nurse”. The crying and feelings of persecution from the anti vax mob after that was a wonder to behold.

      They still haven’t got over it

    I love to hate “Patriot Nurse”. It reminds me of our toxic Australian AVN RNs, harassers of the bereaved parents of children who have died of pertussis or SIDS.

      Vile, everyone of them. Good luck in the competition xx

    I cant decide between the MMS post or your taking on the Patriot Nurse. Both are excellent! Your blog is great and your son is adorable!

      Thank you. The Pwd is a little monster at times too!

    I loved your “Neighbours” post, because it shows how you stand up for your pwdin even in the middle of the night and having heard your voice on your videos, I can just imagine you telling off your neighbour so well :)

    • Darwy

      Truth!

      I can hear her saying, “Listen up, I’m going to tell you how things are and you’re going to just have to stand there and listen already!”
