Why is it whenever I say on here dd (7 with AS and Adhd) is doing well she then goes dramatically down hill?
Over the past few days the person that she has been is not my dd.
She is acting so so strange and it's almost like someone I don't know.
Now I have never seen the asd part of dd as anything but part of her. At the moment it feels like the asd has completely taken over her. I know that probably sounds strange but on an average day she has the odd quirky moments throughout the day and that is it.
The teacher even said today she just isn't herself. It's almost like she does completely inside herself. She even punched her best friend today.
Why oh why is dd so unpredictable. It's horrible to think that sometimes I don't know her. I wonder what makes her like this?
I forgot her fish oil today and her teacher said that dd kept saying she was behaving like she was as she didn't have her "courage" (name she has given to the eskimo oil)
Just makes me feel sad really as we have had such a lovely few months and it kicks you right in the teeth when you are hit with reality again
I think I am going to ring Bibic tomorrow, need to channel myself into doing something!

Oh I'm sorry.

Nothing helpful to say but I thought you could do with a hug...

I hate that they are so changeable. You never know what each day will bring.

Sorry you feel like this hun.

Take Care.

It's the unpredictability of it all, isn't it? One minute you're thinking about how everything is ticking along nicely and the next minute it's all gone horribly wrong and there doesn't seem to be any reason for it.

I'm glad things are more positive today. xx

She did have a bad afternoon as I forgot her pe kit so she didn't do it.
I am so angry with myself as I caused her to have more stress iykwim.
I just wish I could work out triggers.
I was thinking could something as small as not going swimming last Wednesday (and we always do) be enough?
I am wracking my brains to think what has happened tbh

Don't blame yourself Blossomhill. You are obviously doing a wonderful job.

Hope things are a bit better now.
