I am usally just a lurker but i am having the two weeks from hell and i needed to vent here and maybe you can offer me some suggestions because I BELIEVE THAT I AM GOING OUT OF MY MIND and i have been expecting the men in the white coats to come all day. I have three DS's who are all Autistic ( varing degrees)and it just seems as if since the weather changed all Hell has broken loose here . First of all they are all 2.4yrs old and its like stim week we have biting and flapping and pushing and hitting and screeaming at the top of our lungs (im sure the neighbors think im beating them ).
Once I calm one down the next one starts they seem to be picking up each other behaviors lately and i find that no matter what i do it does not work. Did i mention jumping out of our cribs. I find that all of my friends and family have pretty much written me off because they feel that they have nothing in common with me and one of them even said that she didn't want her child to pick up bad habits from them . I guess i just needed to vent and feel that people understood and not tell me to not worry about it it will pass "it's just a stage" "do you really need allthat therapy". My Dh has been working alot of overtime lately and i have been on my own but i am used to taking care of them by myself because we have never had any help. My Dh is wonderful and is very helpful when he is home
but i guess that i am just having a bad day today.
Does anybody else children stim more when there is a weather change ? Or is it just that these sims that went away have just come back? There has to be an antcedent dosen't there.
sorry that i went on an on but i appreciate you listening to me complain.
