Something Isn't Right With my Baby Girl :'(
We have an appointment scheduled for her evaluation on Monday. She will not get a diagnosis then though, only approved or not for therapy. I know in my gut that something is wrong. She has almost every red flag for autism but Aspergers is so similar.
I just left my therapist's office because I am having panic attacks. One after another. I am physically sick to my stomach and can barely catch my breath. She finally went down for her nap, so now I have allowed the tears to start coming. I don't want her to see me like this! She probably wouldn't notice that I am crying, but I still have to hold back when she can see me
I guess what I am looking for here is some encouraging words or advice. This is all so new to me. Is there a chance that she will have a "normal" life if she is autistic? Could she ever make friends, go to college, get married, have a family? I want her to be happy so bad. I would give my life for her happiness. She is 22 months old, BTW.
Somebody, please help me!
