Yesterday, after school, Hope, GB, and I went to meet GB’s MSC (Medicaid Service Coordinator) at Mickey D’s. I had a bunch of paper work to sign and a report to read. The report cover GB’s needs and deficits and was still four pages long. GB’s social skills and adaptive behavioral skills are at approx four years. Reading this report made me wonder if the correct diagnosis for GB is Autism, rather than PDD-NOS or Aspergers. GB chit chatted with the MSC and when she was done, went off to play. Hope followed GB around, getting in face and interfering with what ever she was doing in the play place. GB got more and more irritated and Hope could not be redirected. I finally had Hope sit next to me and got through everything I needed to.
We went home. GB wanted nothing to do with Hope and my head was still back with the report. We were having a huge thunder storm, which kept the girls inside. They bickered, I separated them. One clung, then the other clung, then they both tried to cling. We had dinner. I took both girls upstairs for night time meds. They were bickering again. I told them both to knock it off and Hope clawed me.
The night never really got better. This morning GB was teary and Hope flat out refused to get on the bus. My head is still at yesterday’s meeting. Need to reset before the weekend.
