Hello Everyone! I have a 4 year old Daughter whom has been diagnosed with having Aspergers Syndrome. Our daughter was diagnosed on the 15th of January which was also my husband and I's anniversary, we had two special events that day. We first realized that there were some things that were going on with our daughter that were not quite right, and we were very concerned. we are a military family so where we were living we did not have much time left because we were being sent to Fort Bliss in El Paso Texas. The pediatrician she had before we moved was concerned and had mentioned to us that we should get her evaluated and tested for Aspergers because of the things she was doing, like the consistent rocking, sounds that were ongoing she would zone out, she would throw tantrums so severe that we could not control her and also she was not being social with other children her age. we love our daughter with all our heart, and when she was finally diagnosed i felt a sense of relief and so did my husband because now we know what was going on with her and how we could help her as a family whole. This has made me very emotional because i have all sorts of things running through my head, like what did i do as a mother to cause this in my child, or what i could have done to prevent this. I am not very familiar and do not know about Aspergers however i love my daughter and i want to know as much about it that i can and am willing to do anything to help her. When i look at her i start feeling bad and i start to hug her and cry. I really hate for her or our other children to see me like this. I feel as if i have done something wrong. Does anyone have any suggestions?
Thank you all for your help and support!
