When “fine” isn’t – Thurs 6th March 2014

By | March 6, 2014

Another day closer to the weekend, another day when D has bottled things up until she saw me at home time.

I mentioned in yesterday’s post that D had been upset at school but had kept her negative emotions in until the end of the day. This is something that is an ongoing issue and has been for years, CAMHS are meant to be working on strategies together with someone at school but after having been left a garbled message about “crossed wires” and no call back since then, I don’t think anything has happened. I have tried to call but without success.

Anyway…once I’d written in the diary about yesterday, there was a reply today saying that the individuals had been talked to yesterday, which would have been nice to know yesterday.

Similarly today, a TA had gone past and said D was “fine”, D appeared and it transpired that she wasn’t. Her expression and the fact she bolted said that she was anything but. A bottling-it-up situation again. It was only when a TA saw that D was distressed that they mentioned that, yes, something had happened today to upset her. So, again, it would have been good to know in advance that everything was not “fine”.

Lots and lots and LOTS of tight-tight cuddles needed to regulate D and she hasn’t wanted to be too far away from me.

In contrast, T seemed happier today. A combination of Spring-like weather and the fact it’s nearly the weekend, I think. For today, at least, angst over his secondary school place has been averted.

A definite see-saw for T and D, but that is the unpredictable predictability of life with autism. I hope everyone’s day has gone well, comments/RTs/shares as ever welcomed, thanks for reading Jx
