Please don't feel hopeless. Thousands have been recovered from autism, including my children. Most don't pay attention to gene problems, and just focus on pathogens and toxins. Gene issues may make you more likely to have symptoms, but usually it's not absolute and treatments can reverse symptoms. Have your parents help you with finding a good doctor that knows all this. See www.heidinotes.com for some basic information and www.generationrescue.org for some help.
