Hi, another member suggested I try this approach, I've tried diagnosing my daughter 4 doctor's have, and now i'm working on scheduling yet another complete evaluation.........so i'm going to list the symptoms and if anyone sees anything i'm missing i'd love to know, or have any ideas....... sleep issues - hard time falling asleep due to anxiety level about following day. some nights (when not on medications') will be wide awake until 2 or 3 in the morning. hard to get her up the next day but once you do she's good to go for day as far as alertness level is concerned. here's where it gets weird. i saw a pattern for while she'd be up 3 nights in row not all night but def pushing it then crash 4th and 5th. also did alot of crying before bed about everything. seems like right before bed is when it all comes out. wet bed for years as well i think that may of been anxiety. anxiety - extreme; in school all day long (yet it is new school), at night before bed about next day. almost all the time except weekends if there' s no pressure. is afraid to be left in car with sister even if just for a second (id' never do anything unsafe), lots of stuff can't remember it all. paranoid - believes taht everyone is always looking at her and pointing and talking about her. self conscious. social interaction - her social interaction is and has been for years seriously lacking. she's had few close friends takes while to form friendships but it does happen in small setting not large school setting. yet family has noticed for yeras a certain disconnect in her. not affectionate child - can walk into room with tons of family will approach no one. doesn't like to be hugged except for mom and dad. sensory issues - she doesn't like dirt on her feet; hands is fine. doesn't like the way stuff feels on her feet; ie. after shower will freak standing in tub or once gets out special towel on flr. wont' stand on tile or on rug. then doens't like to walk on carpet after shower most days stands on bed to dry off and get dressed. Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) - or at least what i think to be Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD). she obsesses about stuff bigtime. lost a worry doll in group one day (anxiety group) she goes to and she started obsessing then started talking about emergency school procedures. she circles her sheet at night. circular motion. i asked why she said she doesn't know makes her feel better, she she she circles until the circle gets "dirty' then she starts a new one. she's not a ritual hand washer or anything and her face is always dirty. checks cups for dirt/germs at times, expiration dates are big for her. likes to close car door with me at same time everytime we get in truck. (can't think of all the behaviors but you get the idea). hyper - was hyper until medication's, she's been on medications for so long i honestly forgot how hyper she could be. used to be so bad she couldnt' sit through movie without doing something to keep herself engaged. emotionally immature at least to me she's going to be 9 yet she's still such a little girl for 9. emotionally unstable the moods at times nothing too severe except the crying at night. very clingy and very needy - spending a day with her is tiring to be honest. she is always needing for something isn't independent at all. tried to get her to take a class somewhere dance thing wouldnt' go i'm going to try cheerleading thing this spring for her. violent she got violent with our old dog a few times people tell me that's bad. also verbally abusive to her sister. would sit in bed before any medications and rip lauren apart while lauren would try to get ready without lauren provoking her. some days lauren would leave in tears for school. she's also sensitive to stuff. not light but vacuum radio auditory sensitivity ears tested she's good. is easily distracted by noises outside. teacher told me as of late seems depressed very withdrawn (yet think that's medications) and social interaction lack of ability to handle herself. k i think that's it. ok you guys are great so i'm anxious to hear your thoughts. thank you thank you as always Jen P.S, im not going to tell you the many diagnosis only because i want to see what you guys come up with..... P.
