    I agree that there's some things in there that sound both like adhd and asd, the psych is a great place to start. Hopefully they can give you some answers and move you in the right direction. Over time you'll probably get to know them very well, and probably work with a child psychiatrist too if you end up looking at medication.
    Once you're ready for it, an OT that specialises in behavioral conditions will probably help too! Good luck Caz

    I hope everyone had a good Christmas!
    We went to my step sisters house this year, ds2 survived about 2hrs before DH took him home.
    We are surviving the holidays so far.
    I have an NDIA meeting on the 9th to go over the boys new plans.. but I think we might heading straight to go for an appeal.... I dont think we were successful in getting DS2s communication device.

    The lack of the routine and structure school is bringing lots of meltdowns. One big thing that has happened is we have finally graduated out of pull ups completely where previously DS2 was still requiring them for night time.

    Oh wow that is such huge news!! It is such a great thing when you dont need them anymore and so good for your purse as well.

    I understand the out of routine stuff that the holidays bring. I am on the edge as is, and even though things have been at a minimum chaos level, I am really struggling to maintain my cool.

    Yes. Everything is ok. Working my way through how i feel about dd2 situation (she got $14.5k accommodation scholarship). One minute i am ecstatic the next i am freaking out. I think it will be good for her to be so close to uni (melb cbd) and it will force her to interact more with other students. But I am freaking out about her living alone. Walking alone in the cbd streets at night. She doesnt shop or cook but she will need to do both. I had got used to the idea of living with her sister in suburbs.

    So yeah just normal mum freak out i suppose.

    Both my primary school asd bith anxieties are through the roof about going back to school ds2 is being a cat (his anxiety protection mechanism) 80% of the time. It drives me batty as face rubs and padds on me. Ds3 has built a fort that includes the galf pulled down christmas tree and if any gets to close or touches it ends up in a 2 hour min meltdown. Problem its in the entry way to the kitchen.

    Today was dd2 final surgeons check up. We rock up and they without telling changed her appointment until after she leaves. There solution after you move go the gp and getca referal to royal melb faxmax team and have them do it. Yeah because they won't have a very long wait list right. In other words just forget the whole check up process. Its not like it her whole face or anything. Oh yeah it bloody well is.

    That really sounds like a load bs. And stress. So much stress.
    I really hope everything improves. I think half the issue is how long the holidays are, its gives them so much more time to stew and regress

    Well we are coming to the end of the holidays, thank crap.

    DS2 has reached his limit. DH forgot to give him medicine today, first time in a long time we have seen him without. And was a good reminder why he was on it. As happy and beautiful he was today, full of giggles, he was full on, jumping on me, head butting me, but having a great time doing it.

    Ds1 has visited his friend for a night, and tonight his friend is here. We are getting them ready for school camp. I have to admit having an extra kid sounded daunting, but so far so good. WE have a tent set up outside, so I hope they successfully fall asleep out there.

    The holidays have been bareable, but seriously I am so done now, I want it to be the day back already.

    This year I have to address my health, because I am on the decline. I have issues with my hormones and it is beginning to take its toll on my body. I also am experiencing quiet a bit of pain in my knee and it sounds like a bowl of rice bubbles when I bend it...
    I am also thinking about taking a week long holiday this year, 1 with and 1 without my DH.
