Run Over

We drove down to the George Jarvis Clinic today. We had an appointment for GB to have a neuropsych done, as a follow up to July’s appointment, which confirmed she is FASD. GB cheerfully went off with the tester, while I stayed to talk to the psychologist who runs the department. I don’t know what I was expecting, but since the testing hadn’t even started, I wasn’t expecting anything new.  The psychologist started by telling me besides being Bipolar and having FASD, she was Autistic. I felt run over. She said she wouldn’t know where on the spectrum GB fell until after today’s testing. It will be either PDD-NOS or Aspergers. GB’s Dad is more blown away then I am. Feelings will have to wait for a post on the other blog and probably until I am not numb any more.
