DD is almost 6 and diagnosed Autistic. All her life she's had medical issues.
Last night DD ate a small amount of omo laundry powder. I immediatly called 13health and then the poison info centre. They said given the way i discribed her condition she was absolutly fine, just to keep an eye on her.
So i text her father (we've been divorced 3 yrs and live in different areas) explaining what DD had done, thinking he'd want to know.
Well, why the hell do i bother?? I got the blame of course, i should be watching her 24/7, shouldnt let her have access to things like washing powder.
Of course i should know she'd try to eat that.
I text him back saying im not able to be at her side 24/7, she was going to the toilet. I suggested the likeness between when he had DD last holidays and she went missing for 10mins when he let her go to the toilet alone at a family property out bush with a dam and uncovered water tank...
I explained DD has 'Pica', which is a common condition amongst ASD kids and his reply? 'Its always a condition with you'.
Im bloody over being blamed, he should be bloody grateful that im busting my *** to provide the very best care for OUR daughter. I text him that and he didn't reply, surprise surprise.
