I'm scared to ask this- depression related
Dh and I both talked earlier and agreed we've seen and heard things individually that have raised red flags. Today ds threatened to find a thorn bush and stick his face, legs, and feet if I didn't give him a popsicle. Then Proceeded to say he'd kill himself after the thorns. About 5 minutes of this being repeated. Over a popsicle :(
I have NEVER said that during my lows, or ever. I have no idea where the ideas or phrases came from. It scares me! This is NOT the first time he has said or done anything that raises a red flag.
Would you mention it to the OT before the pedi (OT is Thurs morning vs idk when for pedi)? We WILL be seeing the pedi at some point soon.
Does anyone else deal with a small 5yo child and depression along with asd and any other illnesses?
