Anxiety anxiety anxiety!
My daughter who turns 18 in April, suffers from extreme anxiety. She was diagnosed at 18 months and didnt speak until she was around 7years old. She was very agressive due to not being understood. She used pecs but could only use 4 cards at a time. Now she hits, spits, pulls my hair and kicks me, at any opportunity. She is 5ft 8 and 12 and a half stones, so she really can do some damage! After she has a meltdown she doesnt remember anything, but this can happen two or three times a day. She is on risperidone, methelphenidate, and sicadine also melatonine to help her sleep. I love my daughter very much but i find it hard to like her sometimes, and i feel so guilty saying that.
