Quoting Reise's Mommy:" I kinda think I would be a little annoyed too. I'm very sensitive to my routine, though. I also like ... [snip!] ... house" I don't know why. Their house is far from perfect but it bothers me a lot, so I don't think you're being ungrateful."Im a clean freak too-that is why I like to know, to make everything perfect,lol
Quoting Misty Walls:" I dont think its ungrateful and you have a right to be irritated. They should be organized enough that ... [snip!] ... they came out to your house & you werent there. They should at least call and let you know that the scheduling has changed"I made sure I repeated the fact that it was lucky that we were still home a few times, to drive the point home. The scheduler is also one of the therapists so I am nervous about pissing her off because that would just be awkward.

Quoting Reise's Mommy:" I clean way too much. I mop on my hands and knees like every other day. I wasn't THIS bad until about ... [snip!] ... is a little too important to me. I try very hard to have nice things and have a nice house and be the perfect little family."Awe Im happy that you have a house that you can be proud of. My husband makes fun of me because we have been through 3 vaacuums in a couple years and says that normal people dont vacuum every single day,lol

[snip!] ... of me because we have been through 3 vaacuums in a couple years and says that normal people dont vacuum every single day,lol"I'm a freak then too haha. I get worse the older I get. I quit smoking with this pregnancy because the ecigs came out here recently and I COULD quit (tried with my first with the patch, severely allergic, tried cold turkey and my doctor flipped because my blood pressure went through the roof so I just cut to like 4 or 5 a day from like 30, but been almost 6 months nicotine free now! ) and now I smell EVERYTHING. I could sniff out anything, I think. So I'm constantly mopping and vacuuming and mopping again trying to hunt down things no one else can even smell haha. We have a $400 vacuum and I don't even like it. It's the Dyson Animal. It's great for hair and dirt and things but Cheerios? Not so much. Just pushes them around. I hate that I spent so much money on the stupid thing
Quoting mama3trish:" We are currently doing IBI (intensive behavioral therapy ) for autism with my 4 year old in our home ... [snip!] ... I feel ungrateful-these people are trying to help and I am griping about being inconvenienced-I need to suck it up......right?"
Quoting 1234567:" I know how you feel. I get a new schedule like, every week and last week I must have had an old schedule ... [snip!] ... another job, too). So I know how you feel but I do try to just suck it up. It could be worse... he could be going without!"I think th other reason I feel like I am being ungrateful is because this is paid for by the government-not one penny out of our pocket except the 2 days he be requested to attend daycare (so $305-350 a month). If we paid for it then I wouldnt feel bad for being picky-kwim. And I do agree that he is a lucky boy to be getting such early intervention when some people have waited 4 years to get the help.
Quoting Mommy of a giggler!:" On one hand, I'm totally jealous of you! lol On the other, my son NEEDS a schedule so I NEED a schedule, so it better damn well be the way I think it was supposed to be!"Are you guys on the list for IBI or is it not available to you? I was thankful in one way that Brady was relatively severe because we do seem to get help quicker and havent had any hesitation in his diagnosis-it was obvious.

Quoting Mommy of a giggler!:" Nothing here locally - if we were in Edmonton (2 hours away) we could get a lot more. Up until this ... [snip!] ... 3 weeks or so to work with him. We are lucky, he's not to severe, and I work my ass off with him and he has a GREAT team "This place we deal with is located and hour and a half away, but the team comes to you after you are accepted. The wait time is usually 2-3 years and the child has to be fairly severe-otherwise you are left with Pathways and they only are allowed to offer up to 1 hour a week......and they are kind of useless,lol. I can imagine you did work your ass off, I can tell you are a fantastic advocate and Mom. I really wish we had food therapists here-seriously wish. Next month we have a feeding team coming out and this consists of a ST and OT, so we will see what happens.
