I'm pretty depressed today, thinking about daughter, I haven't spoken to her since Friday when I saw her. I know she's in a new home as of that day and I'm not sure if they have my phone number, and of course, daughter can't seem to memorize it. While I'm sitting here feeling sorry for myself, and reading the plights that many of you have had, I'm wondering if anybody could give me some insight into her symptoms and what else might be going on in her head. Obviously nobody here is a doctor, but I'm trying to put the pieces together for when she does see the doctor. She has High-Functioning Autism (HFA), mostly social issues, communication issues (needs time to formulate sentence, can't talk if stressed), some auditory issues. Does the lining up of things. Now self-abuse, it's been witnessed before, but she's never left a mark on herself until now. Probably a little Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), but very little. ODD, which covers the lying and a little stealing. It's just a lot of lying, and she's the best liar I've met. Has an Learning Disability (LD), in math and auditory processing. The issues I'm not sure where they fit are: She gets in a rage when she's really mad (like if I won't let her watch something on TV, something stupid), runs away, takes my phone so I can't text husband. She's been violent to me, but it's never been bad, just a swat to my arm. When she gets into one of these rages (fugues?) I think she forgets the pinnacle of her behavior. Every time she goes through one of these, I know when she starts crying that it's done. She can't be nice to the cats. husband thinks she's actually being mean on purpose. I think she just doesn't think of them thinking and wanting to be a cat. She'll throw things at the cats if she finds them hiding under the bed. Both daughter and the cats are finally at the point where one of them asks her for attention, but won't go in her room, one will let her pet her, but won't go in her room, the third just stays away from her period. Disrespects her belongings, destroys her things. Her room has this constant layer of little piece of paper, mostly trash, some things she's actually ripped up into pieces. She breaks pencils. She has admitted to beating on her dolls out of frustration. Sees things in her closet. This is a weird one, because I know she can see ghosts, but the way she describes these, they don't seem like ghosts. But there was something in our old apt (nothing that bothered us though), so I can't rule anything out. So far she hears them quietly chatting in non-english with each other, but not to her. She has said she wants to stop hurting us but can't. There is something eating at her inside that she can't control. She has not been moody, depressed or manic. My sister told me last night that our Dad had been diagnosis'd with borderline Schizophrenia back in the mid-70s (he's a Vietnam Vet with I'm sure plenty of PTSD at that time). Thanks Dad for ever telling us, who may have inherited the gene! Is there something other than ODD and Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) that I need to be reading up on? I'm sure there are other things that are not normal behavior and I've gotten used to them or can't think of them now. I just worry so much that she has some kind of psychosis going on and want to be prepped to help her when I get her back.
