Tenderhooks… Sun 8th Dec 2013

By | December 8, 2013


This would be me tonight.

I am extremely nervous about D heading back to school tomorrow. Her cold has diminished and it will be good for her to get back into routine but, bearing in mind that school is where Bunny is (or was)…somewhere and the fact that she has been extremely stressed since her hospital appointment, her painful injection and the yucky tablets, I’m concerned.
Concerned that she’ll blame school for losing Bunny, concerned that her emotions will overcome her at the slightest thing, as they have been this weekend.

It’s made worse by the fact that I won’t see her teacher as the classroom is upstairs and they don’t allow parents to accompany children up there. So I’ve written pages in her home-school diary, hopefully he’ll have time to read and digest it.

I can’t help being concerned, she’s my girl and, at the moment, she’s fragile. Very fragile. Even T said today “phew, what a day” after his sister had disappeared to her room in a flurry of angst yet again, after something which might normally be brushed aside.

I know it’s early days with the new medication and the yucky tablets but it’s really bad timing with the loss of Bunny.

Hopefully she’ll go in okay (ish) and have an alright day, I know there’ll be practice for her Christmas singing on Tuesday. I do know that I’ll be worrying until I see her little face peeking around the bottom of the stairs, looking for me in my usual place, waiting for her.

So, that’s how I roll today. Sorry it’s a “oh blimey, I don’t know” post but I haven’t felt like this since before she received her statement and that feeling is one of helplessness.

I hope everyone’s day has gone well, comments/RTs/shares as ever welcomed, thanks for reading Jx

I think helplessness is what I would be feeling in the same
circumstances so no need to apologise – after all this is a blog
about autism and it has its ups and downs. I am hoping fervently
that someone has put Bunny in a “safe place” and she will be
returned pronto. Apart from that I obviously am also hoping for a
day of calm ahead xx

Thanks Karen, me too. I will be clock-watching and hoping x
