She also suffers from severe constipation and has her whole life.She is off and on potty trained& when she has trouble going we relapse back in to pull ups. She is on miralax but it's difficult because, like all of her meds, we have to force them if she gets in a mood and won't comply.
During her calm moments, my daughter can seem less severe. She smiles and almost looks at people. Her main issue with others is hair-she loves the texture of it and will pull anyone's. My son is 7 and NT. I'm a single parent living with my best friend from college (who is awesome).
Frankly I wish we could just relax. I understand that therapy is beneficial to my daughter but I'm tired of being there nearly every other day and having people come to my house. I love her school but I am overwhelmed by IEP meetings and meeting with her teacher for an hour practically every morning (small talk turns into conversation about sydney's behavior).
I love my daughter very much and I want her to be the best version of herself. I know she needs these services but I hope that we reach a point where we can go about normal life as a family. I love and accept her differences, sometimes I just want to take my kids to the park and call it a day.
Do you ever reach a point when your child is "stabilized" ?
