Bought some nice wine, some cheese, crackers and anti pasto mix. She came, got the poops because my neighbours have long grass (how that affects her I will never know) then got the poops because dd had a friend over from next door and they turned the tv up. I told them to play on verandah and the tv went off. She was not happy with that, told the other kid to leave, then I told her to please not yell at people so she squealed for a long time, really loud. I apologised to my friend, then took dd to the airconditioning and took the dog in with her and shut the door to give her a chance to play with the dog and calm herself.
My friend said she will not put up with that behaviour and I told her that she really can't help it, her brain works in different ways but she said "whatever" then left. She was here all of 10 minutes! My dd came out fully calm and now we are eating the food and I am drinking wine, alone.
I know other people who have ASD kids feel this way, but the isolation is really hitting hard lately. How do you make friends? How do you build a support network? Or at least, how do you handle the isolation? My dd said "I bet I was the reason she left. No one ever wants to be near me"
