We saw her psychiatrist yesterday and I got to stay for the first half hour of the meeting so he could clarify what happened in the week since she got assessed and the suicide attempt. She was much more honest with him about her lack of sleep, her wanting to cut and that she really had been trying t...

I have to bring my daughter to her psychiatrist appointment today at 1:00 pm. I feel really anxious because we haven't been lucky with getting her help so far. Every time she meets a new person, she acts so functional and everyone reassures me that she is doing great and then it soon falls apart. I ...

Ettina, she doesn't seem to realize how serious an act it was and she doesn't currently want to die, but it takes nothing to trigger her to want to. She couldn't understand why I was so upset with her and I had to explain that I could have been planning her funeral if I had not caught her in time. S...

The psychiatrists are trying to get her into cognitive behaviour therapy, so hopefully that will help. Likely a long waiting list for that too though.

Exactly a week after two psychiatrists assessed my daughter and said she had no signs of depression at all, she tried to kill herself by drinking ammonia last Thursday. I was just in time to see her do it and I tore it from her hands and ran upstairs to dump it down the sink. While I was on the phon...

Well one of the crisis workers suggested using cold showers and sucking on really sour candies and some other ideas that my daughter was not really wanting to do.

Welcome Minfilia, I am sorry to hear you feel trapped by your son. My daughter is 15 and I have felt like this with her too, when it was just her twin sister, her and I living together. She however would get violent to get her way. And at first I gave in to prevent her rages, but then I realized she...

Well I had posted before about my 15 year old AS daughter who has been really suffering lately with depression and anxiety. Since I took her for a psych assessment and they reduced her meds, 2 days later she begged me for the higher dose of Zoloft because she said the feelings were coming back. She ...

Well our appointment was pushed to yesterday - I thought it would never get here! My daughter's last cutting episode was a week ago, so she wasn't doing so great. Well the two psychiatrists that saw her thought she had no symptoms of depression and seemed to think this was something she was sufferin...

Yes I hope all of this gets sorted out and this psychiatric assessment we have on Friday helps us get better meds - maybe just some sleeping pills so she can finally get the much needed rest she needs. That's exactly what my daughter does, really panics about the thought of going back to school - I ...

Yellowfinch - yes I have the same trouble with my girls - they are 15 and one has aspergers and the other is neurotypical, but sometimes I find her NT sister harder to deal with with the dramas of high school.

I can't believe she tricked me! My daughter got me to buy her colouring books, pencil crayons and sharpeners and I was ready to do anything that might be relaxing. She took the metal from the pencil sharpener to cut herself! I just can't get over this - how awful!

Hi ASD mommy, thanks for the welcome back - always glad to see your posts as you are always so supportive. I am able to get her to eat, but I have to run a long list of choices and then I have to make it for her and bring it to her. Luckily, she will eat if I do that. PDDtwinmom - She says she has n...

I have 15 year old twin girls and only one of them is diagnosed AS. Reading about your description about your son and daughter sounded so much like my girls at age 3 - my AS daughter never learned to say much until she was 3 years old and going to nursery school. She used to run off all of the time ...

My daughter started noticing my eating sounds at about that age too. She would find it unbearable and run from the table screaming about what a total pig I am. We used to put on the tv or listen to records to help drown out the food noises. She is 15 now and usually doesn't eat with my fiance and I ...

My daugher has been severely depressed for the last few weeks and I am having such trouble getting her help. She cut herself pretty badly about 6 weeks ago and her twin sister woke me up and we were able to hold her down and keep her safe and an hour later, the feelings had passed like a thunderstor...
