So I know lots of you ladies are pregnant/have newborns but I was coming in here to say Briggs is being assessed for autism. He went for the consultation at the autism clinic and the two doctors who interacted with him said yes, he needs the full blown assessment done. That happens on the 26th.
Part of me is happy that its getting on its way. Part of me is really not handling it too well. I know without a doubt my son is autistic. The older he is getting the more obvious it is. I am very matter of fact and am not the type to pull the wool over my eyes. It is still so hard to deal with though. I guess there is still that hope that he will just magically not have these obstacles ahead of him. At 2.5 he still doesn't even respond to his name. He self harms out of confusion and its just... I was hoping I was doing something wrong and it wasn't him, ya know?
Ow Paige , My heart breaks for you . Coming to terms with having a diffrent kid is hard. I know how I felt with Caleb and can sympathize with you.
If you ever need to rage , just hollar. It is not Fair and will never be fair , but I am positive you will teach him how to cope and have a good life. Who cares about normal anyway?
