M-Dina, first Occupational Therapy session. Was an experience for us. Who knew that structured play was among the best ways to get kids to focus and stabilise their sensory misalignments. Therapists were very knowledgable and offered a lot of good pointers.., here's to #baninazri to get M-Dina to play, play and play (with proper structure and planning of course!) . . #autismawareness#autisme is not an illness #toddlers need to play properly #wewilldothistogether#letadothis
Putting on a brave face. I knew it would be hard getting Noah to school today because he convinced himself that there was no school at all this week. What I didn't expect was to wake up with crippling anxiety. I am always anxious but this morning it was really hard to get out of bed at all. I was so afraid of beginning the day and just going downstairs that it was really hard to peel myself away from the safety of my covers, where there is nothing unexpected and no demands.
I managed to get up but Noah was on the brink of a meltdown all morning and persuading him to go to school took so long that we were late anyway. I am doing little sensory things to make my day easier. I bought an iced coffee from my favourite shop to help me stay calm. Now I am headed into a psychiatrist appointment but I'm on the brink of a panic attack because I am finding it so hard to organise my thoughts and figure out how to say what I want. Speech is going to be hard today because I can't find the right words in my brain and I have to talk a lot in my appointment. Breathe, drink, stim, repeat.
