Tap Posted December 1, 2011 Share Posted December 1, 2011 (edited) DD5 has Aspergers and Generalized Anxiety Disorder (and ADD we suspect). She is a very, very difficult child to raise, to say the least. She has been kicked out of a daycare and is now on the verge of getting kicked out of another. We have done weekly therapy with her since she was 2yo. She has/has had OT, BT and a psychiatrist. She is medicated, but it only helps a smidge. Today, I babysat a friends normal functioning 3yo. A feisty, only child, but normal functioning. It made me so sad to see first hand how different the girls are. :( I know dd5s issues. I live her issues. I duck while she throws shoes at me. Just to spend the day with a normal child, was sad. Sad for me about dd5. About how she still acts like a 2yo. How the world revolves around her 100% and everyone else is just an uninvited visitor in her world. It was sad to see dd5s achievements from weeks and weeks of therapy, to come so naturally to the 3yo. DD5 was upset when her friend had to leave, but even at 3yo....the friend didn't want to stay and play with dd5. :( I don't blame her, you don't really play with dd5, she plays around her visitors, and it had better be what dd5 wants to play....or else. Or else what, well there isn't any other option. What made me the saddest....was remembering what it was like to enjoy a little one being in the house. It has been a long time since I have felt like that. Edited December 1, 2011 by Tap, tap, tap Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
