hi! I haven't been on for about a week. I wanted to says "Thanks" for the replies. I sure seem to have it together but I actually feel like I am an island. My daughters disabilities have drove away countless friends and family members. They don't understand and don't try to. Our household is very close. We are a team. We support eachother and our motto is family first. We can't vacation or go out for dinners. We are always aware of our little "Bug" as we call her. She has missed three days of school this week. She has a hard time finding cloths to feel right. She has never slept alone so we all take turns. She hates brushing her teeth and showers. She has ALL things filtered for her. She mostly watched cartoons,no tv commercials, no mad faces, or loud voices. Her bedtime rituals take about an hour. Me my husband and three other daughters feel and see her pain. She only wears croc shoes,mostly sweats, very large t-shirts, and certain socks. She chews on straws and doesn't like to touch paper.She needs structure in all areas. She has no friends and would love some. When her para is gone she can't go to school. Although she only goes half days in the resource room. There is a little more info. for all. Sorry os long. Thanks for the support.
