I'm new to this board and was just wondering if some of you may be able to share with me some of the symtoms your children experienced prior to their diagnosis. A little bit about us........I had a rough pregnancy, I was very upset all the time because I was abused both physically and mentally and then (thankfully) left when I was 6mo. along. I was 20, alone, scared, and hurt. I had family, but it's just not the same as having the father be a part of things. From the age of around 3mo., Jack was colicky - he would scream for hours at a time. He started to crawl at 5mo and was walking at 7 1/2mo. It was around then he started banging his head on things like windows, doors, and the floor. He is very intelligent, his speech is so well developed for his age and always has been. He can be very loving and sweet on his "good days." I am concerned that he may have some underlying issues. He very rarely makes friends because he has the tendency to be mean to them. He is bossy and throws tantrums almost every night. By the time he was 3, he had been "kicked out" of 2 daycares for biting other children, mainly babies. He struggles to fit in and is often very shy around other kids yet gets along great with adults. He loves to be naked and sometimes refuses to wear certain items that are too restricting such as underwear or socks. It seems like there is always a struggle with something when it comes to him. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
P.S. - I forgot to mention how absolutely adorable he is!
