with my son, he is very social, he will look you in the eye, u call him, and he'll look at u.. but.. his problems is ocd. obsessive complusive disorder. he has to have a light turned on when walking in a room and off when walking out, we all have to wear our shoes around the house, and me and hubby have to scrap our plates in the bin then pop them in the dishwasher EVERY time we eat.. cant put it on the bench and walk away! i have to take all the washing off the line, if somethings damp, we will go BALISTIC till i get it off, same as when i empty the dishwasher i have to take it ALL out, if somethings dirty and i want to leave it in their for the next load. i cant.
complusive, as in he has to touch EVERY THING! i mean EVERYTHING..
we cant take him anywhere, if he is in the pram at the shops i have to walk down the middle of the ilse where he cant reach anything, cant go to my parents house or relatives house..
he opens cupboards and cleARS EVERYTHING out onto the floor..
but just his constant touching, like if he walks into the bathroom he will unroll all the toilet paper and i could tell him a million times dont do it, it falls on deaf ears. he will go into my bedroom and put my bed side lamps on the floor! strip the linen off the beds! he is just very distructive..
he is stimulated well.. its not thats he's bored, i play with him heaps and he goes to pre school one day a week so i cant go to the doctors or grocery shop'n.
he loves it. he has a big day and doesnt want to leave his preshool which i think is unusual! he is really happy to see me but he seems to have so much fun there he wouldnt mind staying! at his old preschool i use to pick him up and when he saw me he'd cling to me.
so many people tell me oh if he's hard just send him another day, but that bugs me, i dont want to palm him off because he's difficult, he's my baby, i love him to bits no matter how hard he is.. i hate sending him the one day he goes, but i do need a few hours a week to get things done...
and i HATE people telling me "he's a normal 2 year old!" rrrr that bugs me! i'd be a slack mum if i thought there was something up with him and turned a blinde eye!
does anyone think what i have just wrote sounds normal or a little worrying?
