Quoting applelove:" That is what it sounds like too me , dose he see a psychologist yet? That would be helpful I think. ... [snip!] ... your LO. Maybe you should give that a try. I hope he gets this under control because then the whole family can feel better"
His anxiety is making sure everything is in order. Thanks to the autism, everything has to match, and I'm thinking he's getting overly anxious when things don't match up the way he wants them to. And he wants to out do everyone.
He was seeing a psych about a year ago, but she started double billing us. Canceling our appts and then billing us for them anyways. And then we went to I think a psychiatrist? The ones who can prescribe meds, and what happened with that is that when we couldn't get the medication he didn't call us back to talk to us. And so I called the pedi in an emergency and said, "We're out of meds, we can't afford these, can he stop cold turkey?" and the doc informed me that the meds he is on, is a blood pressure med, and stopping cold turkey could cause a massive blood pressure spike. Extreme high blood pressure.
This freaked me out because high blood pressure to me = heart attack(probably not in him but you know what I mean) and his psych wouldn't call us back! It obviously was not important to his psych the meds it was more about getting us in for an appt(he wanted us to make an appt and not talk over the phone). So we stopped seeing him.
now he's on medicaid, and so my husband took the sheet from the school psych on counselors, and well that was a month ago, I never received it. So I have to call and get one sent home with him today. If I can get my daughter off the phone. But now we're eating lunch. hopefully afterwards.
