Horrible Pain for my boy with Autism

Warning:  Some of you may know what I’m talking about right away, others may not.  If you haven’t experienced the horrible pain some kids with autism may go through, this post may be more than you can handle.  Heck, I can barely handle it myself; but here it goes.

Guess which one is Dante, at one week old.  
Dante has lived with pain for as long as I can remember.  I call it pain but I really don’t know what ‘it’ is.  What I do know is that he cries real tears, he hits or slaps his head, or tries to bang his head against anything hard, he thrashes on the floor or against his bed and it is very hard to control him.  He seems to be in an agony that he only wants to exacerbate with more agony.  I’m sure some of you know exactly what I am talking about.
