schmut I wish I had a happy post to make. Pictures of a beach, a picnic, an adventure. Instead this is our summer. Closed windows and closed doors, fearing all new and unexpexted sounds and impressions. The only adventure is finding new dressup games on the computer or daring to be alone in a room for 5 minutes.

This is GAD and what anxiety looks like for a 7 year old. 6 months since we met with the ASD-team and her evaluation and treatment has still not begun.
Because of all this, our lives have fallen to pieces. We don't have money to pay our bills, buy entertainment or even a box of icecream sandwiches. The system is broken, that's for sure.

Don't ever take what you have for granted.

  •   kristen__noel @schmut I can't imagine not having services..I'm so sorry. What about her school 22h
  •   kristen__noel They don't have any resources for you? Are all the kids in her class neuro typical? 22h
  •   kristen__noel I tried looking on Google to see about autism and related conditions. I saw a lot of comments from frustrated parents who were not getting help. 22h
  •   schmut @kristen__noel Her school does nothing until there's a diagnosis. Her teacher is awesome but she can only do so much without any resources. Iggy's class is 25 pretty loud kids and one teacher, so Iggy has had a hard time dealing with it. After christmas break, she never returned to school and the term before had been horror. While she was quiet and not making a fuzz in school, she was all meltdowns and crying when she got home. We finally got to see the principal a couple of weeks ago after having tried to get something going since December. She tried to blame the situation on circumstances and by throwing a very compassionate and helpful socialworker under the bus... If it wasn't for Iggy's need for a fixed setting with children she knows, we would have looked for another school last term. As she has difficulties connecting and bonding with other children, a new setting would be, well, horror. In this class there are a handful of kids she has known since she was 3. They accept her for who she is and they like her, so we want to stick with that. 12h
  •   schmut @motvallskarring Iggy brukar titta på ditt instagramfeed och är nog lite imponerad av Alve, men tyvärr är hon väldigt orolig och rädd bland människor och i synnerhet barn hon inte känner. Lekplatser är ex jobbiga ställen då andra barn söker kontakt och undviks helst. Så tack för erbjudandet men hon är nog nöjd med instagramföljandet. 11h
  •   kristen__noel @schmut here, the school can make a diagnosis. Julianna was diagnosed through an autism center and her school. Don't get me wrong there are still loads of problems here, but it sounds horrible where you are. I just want to help so bad or offer info, but obviously...you would be doing anything that was available 10h
  •   kristen__noel Ahhh..I was trying to edit my last post to correct it. Texting gets harder all the time. Basically, I wish you had more resources and help. It makes me mad that they are not acknowledging her needs. I always want to offer advice, but then I realize things are run differently here :( I just hope things come together at some point. I'm so glad Iggy has you as her mother ♡ 10h
  •   kristen__noel Also...my earlier post was that I Googled autism treatment in Sweden and there were a lot of frustrated parents. Again..texting fail 10h

  •   kinkymal Jag börjar rösta för vårdcentralen / akutmottagningen. 2d
  •   trollmammacina Trist när det bara kommer så... Hoppas det snart vänder ! 2d
  •   malmoisbeautiful Det ser lite ut som ringorm?.. Några i alla fall. 2d
  •   beansandink What happened?! 2d
  •   schmut @kinkymal Var på akuten i natt efter att ha snackat med sjukvårdsupplysningen. Tungan blev mindre svullen och jag fick sticka hem. @alizarine Dina tips igår var mitt i prick. Fick Betapred där men då det är någon tjall med deras leveranser fick jag Predisone istället. 2d
  •   schmut @motvallskarring De vet inte och se trodde det var osannolikt att byxorna skulle ge en sådan reaktion då de var tvättade först @pinse26 Otvättade som i looken, du vet de blå som ska se oanvända ut men ofta får extra färg. Jag har dock bara jeans från den modellen och tvätten iochmed att de var de billigaste på marknaden och har inte märkt något förut. @malmoisbeautiful Vissa såg faktiskt lite så ut när de bleknade i mitten, men de är inte knottriga. Det var dock inte det och dessutom borde hela familjen inklusive djur ha haft det. 2d
  •   schmut @beansandink No idea. The ER had no clue, the swelling in my tongue/throat went down and I was send home with Prednisone and Cetrizine 2d
  •   alizarine Mina och mina, det var brorsan :) Hoppas du blir bättre nu! 2d

schmut It's alive!
They couldn't out what it was that caused the reaction but some more anti-histamines and Betapred, and I'll soon be on my way home.

Psst: there was another EDSer in the ER tonight. A young girl. Wonder if I know who she is?
3d
  •   cherryperson Ugh!! Glad it's under control >.< I hope the nastiness clears up soon. Also that's crazy that there happens to be 2 EDSers in an ER at any given time! Weirdness!!! 3d
  •   sandrahll One in my medical team (yes they call it that and yes I have one) got another EDSer among her patients. It's wierd because it's a really small vårdcentral. 3d
  •   motvallskarring Ah. Krya! 3d

schmut The bubonic plague has hit Lund? What I figured was an allergic reaction doesn't respond to medication. And sure, I look like this all over my body. Already had chickenpox , so that's ruled out. #böldchock #zombieshowdown 3d
  •   artbykrystal My parents had come home from overseas travel and one must've gotten into my room. I was the only one who got an infestation. They're pretty easy to spot if you do have them. 3d
  •   alizarine Har du andra symptom än utslagen? Svullen någonstans? Tjock i halsen? Pröva Aerius om du har tillgång, annars 12 st betapred i engångsdos 3d
  •   schmut Feber, ej hög, och allmänt hängig. Vad är Aerius och Betapred? 3d
  •   lewisfrancis Chiggers? Hike or walk in woods lately? Do you have chiggers in Sweden? 3d
  •   sheenabizarre @lewisfrancis I know they have chiggers in Scotland by the droves. And in New Jersey where I got hit by them 2 years ago. Worst itching ever! Anti-histamine to the rescue, @schmut. 3d
  •   schmut @sheenabizarre @lewisfrancis We don't have chiggers in Sweden. Haven't done anything out of the ordinary other than a trip to the hospital so that Iggy could get some blood tests . Think I may have narrowed it down to a new pair of "unwashed" denims as that and two sips of Budweiser was the only thing that was new or different. Even my eyelids, ears and hands itch. Unfortunately, the antihistamines haven't worked so if this doesn't clear up by the morning, I have to go see the gp 3d
  •   lewisfrancis Oh man, hope you find some relief soon! 3d
  •   sheenabizarre Yikes! Feel better. It would be humorous if you were allergic to Budweiser, though! 3d

schmut Regarding Tony - we're heading to the vet as he no longer can keep any liquids down. I tried giving him electrolyte solution through a syringe but no.... We can't afford to have him stay the weekend so options are basically none 1w

  •   schmut @alizarine @chokladkola Han har haft problem med nekrotisk vävnad i blåsan vilket lett till urinstopp, infektioner och annat. Förra året var han inlagd 3 veckor, blev opererad och allt. För några veckor sedan fick han blod i urinen igen och vi behandlade det. Nu ikväll var han rejält uttorkad och går konstigt (igen). Jag har gett honom vätskeersättning och får kolla igen under natten. Har inte råd med ännu en 50000kr runda så läget är tungt, illa och skit 1w
  •   alizarine Fan vad jobbigt. :( 1w
  •   schmut @alizarine Ja, tror tyvärr det blir ett Hejdå om inget drastiskt sker. Känns lagom peppande när äntligen Iggys vardag börjar stabiliseras och utbrotten minskats... 1w
