 my worst fears are confirmed they are looking into austism for my son. i was told even though they havent evaluated him in person yet, that when they do to exspect a referal to a speaclist, apperntly all the questionaires they sent me and asked me through the phone all points to it. i had susspected but i hoped it wasn't so. its not official yet though, hes not dx yet, but they do believe he will be. *sigh* hes not even 2 yet. =(

 

somethign always happens on his birthday every year. (day he was born my fiance missed his birth because she was graduating) his 1st birthday i completed my GED his 2nd birthday.... a month away and i have a bad feeling now.

i kind of exspected it but i guess my subconsious mind was in denial. kind of like expect the worst hope for the best situation, but now that they actually really think he may be its bothering me so much more than i thought it would i mean i did exspect it. so why does it hurt so much?

Of course it's going to hurt you, like the rest of us you just wish it wasn't happening. I try to look at it this way, my son is healthy, happy, he's chatty, smart and is going to succeed in life and I wouldn't change a thing about him. Whatever the outcome he is and always will be my first baby and one of two loves of my life, oops I guess I should say 3 including the hubby....lol

We are scheduled to have ADOS testing done on May 11th for my son and in the back of my mind I really want the specialist to say "Nope he's fine, get outta here" but I know it's not the case. I swing back and forth on it as last night was a perfectly great night. My dh took our ds out for a walk after dinner and they walked down the trails by our house and came across a little girl same age that lives a street behind us. Mark my hubby said Odin played and chatted with the little girl and set up a play date for sometime in the future for them to get together. All of that being said he didn't have a great day at preschool today, didn't want to participate. So you just take it one day at a time, take the good with the bad and do everything you can to help him succeed in life. Good luck to you!

 He's not a different person because he has a dx.  He is the same kid you love.  Now you will know more about how he processes information, so you will be better able to help him function in the world.  It's natural to feel scared and sad, and I hope those feelings will soon fade for you.

Its normal to feel the way you do! Its actually a grieving process. Grieving for the hopes and dreams that you had for your baby. IT WILL GET BETTER!! They are right though. The earlier you get a diagnosis the better off you are & can help your child. ARM YOURSELF WITH KNOWLEDGE!! Research all you can. Be careful not to get overwhelmed but knowledge is key!! Hang in there!!

 Waiting for the evaluation is the hardest time.  You have all these thoughts and fears and nothing to do but wait.  When you get the dx it will get better.  He will get the help he needs and you will see progress.  My boys are 12 and 8 and they have come so far.  They are happy and doing well.  Autism is not a death sentence I promise.  It means they will be great at some things and have challenges in others. 

HUGS
