My dd has just recently started her periods and although she hasn't had any violent outbursts (yet) she is definitely very different a few days before, very tearful and impatient. Some women do suffer with extreme pms and a doctors visit certainly would help, but also remember....pms or not, violence is not acceptable. Do you actually manage to not retaliate? And is she violent with other people as well or could it be anger/frustration aimed just at you whilst using the PMS card??
I decided to take her out for breakfast to a beach cafe today. It all went horribly wrong, they had stopped serving cooked breakfast, it rained etc etc, I won't bore you with the details. This time it was just verbal!
She hates herself afterwards but her remorse is quite self centred, more about her than me, that's the AS though.
If I talk to my mum and sis too much they get upset, thanks for listening
saw your thread .... hope you don't mind me gate crashing. Hope things have calmed down for you thornrose. My dd is a bit older - 16 - and is on the autistic spectrum with severe anxiety issues. She will suddenly change from normal, rational behaviour to lashing out, screaming etc. If she doesn't hit me, she will hit herself on the head. In her case, it is not related to her cycle and it is not normal mother/daughter teenage stuff either which is what the so called experts seem to think. Any guidance would be very much appreciated.
Choc I was just looking through my threads tonight and came across your post. I have a CAMHS appointment next week to discuss this (with a psychiatrist and psychologist.) I'll let you know what they say!
