I'll start by saying I am a sahm of 3, and have resons to believe 2, possibly all 3 have autism. But that isn't the main issue. My Daughter, who is 8, has had an ISS last week, and now this week, has had 2 OSS's. She ran around her classroom, pinched several other students, stuck her tounge out at her teacher, and ripped papers. She has repeatedly disrupted her class, and been very disrespectful to teachers and staff at her school. I've had to go pick her up early, due to tantrums and meltdowns, and she is acting out violently.
Today was the worst though... she accused my husband of molesting her, and then tried to stab herself with a knife. My 9 yr. old held her, and prevented her from getting a knife, and I was able to intervene. I had to hold her until she calmed down. And she has been on suicide watch all night. I had my husband remove all the knives, and he is sleeping in the car.
I don't know who to believe, my husband has never really been alone with any of my kids, and has never givin me any reasons to think he'd ever do anything like that. My Daughter, is my only girl, and I don't want to ignore her, but...I know what a troubled past we have, and she has lied repeatedly, and done some really bad things in the past.
I feel like this is just a way of trying to get rid of my husband, because he's not her dad, and he actually expects her to follow the rules, and disciplines her and her brothers when they break those rules. She's been tested by her school, but I have not yet found out the results. I will be taking her to see a Psychiatrist in the morning, and see if I can get her some help. Her behavior is escallating out of control...could it be something more serious than autism? And how do I know who to trust? I'm alone, and don't know what to do, please help!
My dd has begun treatment process, still in progress, but she will be receiving therepy and medication at some point. It looks like the therepist is calling in Adjustment disorder, with conduct disorder. The CPS workers are still investigating her allegations, but in the meantime, we all will be continuing to seek help, and obtain services. My children are temporarily not in my care, until all matters can be addressed. I will be getting treatment going for myself next week, and will hopefully get the help I need. There really isn't much else to report at this time, but I will update when I can. I ask for continued prayer for my children, myself, and if possible, my husband. He needs them too, weither he did anything or not, he'll still need any prayers he can get. Thank you.
