A friend of mine has an autistic child. We were talking about it a while ago and he said "There's a storm raging in his mind all the time". That statement stuck with me. This is my take on the battle that the child faces daily...

2/17/11 - Holy crap! Getting near 10,000 faves and over 100,000 views. That's just amazing.

Thanks everyone. Who would have thought so many syringes could be liked by so many people...

Much love...

So many needles in the skull. Needles that contain... Powerade. It looks like Powerade.

perhap unwittingly on your part this also strikes me as a comment on how ASDies are often overmedicated or have a really hard time finding the right medications for them...

I didn't know this, it's good to learn something new everyday.

I have an Autistic son, and this photo is spot on, wish more people understood how it effects someone that deals with turmoil of this illness everyday, instead they choose to bully them and make fun. thank you for sharing your wonderful work!

To me the colours are seen to be artificial and through injection will appear foreign to the mind, maybe that is what some of the concepts we accept, might be like to people with autism.

I really like it.

It can apply to everyone really. the idea of "stress headache" etc

Having Aspergers, I can somewhat relate to the "storm inside the mind" analogy. And there's something about this photo, maybe the contrast of tasteful colors combined with the fascinating visual analogy, that my brain just finds delicious. Excellent work.
