All Out of Faith...... for now.......

Something's up with my little man. I think I've been in denial and ignoring it but he's regressing. Again. Eye contact has diminished, it's like pulling teeth just to get him to say "yes" or "no", less laughter, more stimming and playing alone in his room.

I have been getting reports for a couple weeks now that he's struggling at school. He went from being in the inclusive classroom almost all day to having to be removed several times a day. He's refusing to do ANYTHING besides large movement activities. He's throwing tantrums. All new stuff for school. We've had several meetings already and another one tomorrow to try to figure out what is going on. There's talks of moving him out of the inclusive classroom.

It's depressing. I don't know what to do. I just feel like I've run out of tricks. I feel like I'm becoming more and more comfortable with the idea that he may not progress much further. Then I get mad at myself for thinking that way. We're definitely struggling this week. I hope it turns around soon! I have to believe that it will!

I'm in the same kind of space as you are right now. Dammit! We're not supposed to be here on the same day. We're supposed to lift one another up and encourage each other to keep on keepin' on. But, I'm right here with you. So, I'm just gonna tell you all the things I'd want you to tell me...
Of course it will get better. This is the pattern: up, down, up, down, up, down, etc. You're due for an upswing. There is no "ceiling" so don't get too comfortable with the idea that there isn't gonna be much more progress. You can do this. You are an amazing woman; an incredible mother. You're beautiful, smart, thin, you have great hair, etc. {Those are the things I'd want to hear :)}
The truth is, we're all gonna get through this together. I mean, we've gotta. Right? Right??
