Seriously, being a parent is the most difficult thing in this world. Combine that with Asperger's and is it possible to survive this? We had been on behavior meds for a few years. Long story short it wasn't working so well, we changed to a few other things had bad allergies reactions so now we have no behavior meds. SHE NEEDS THEM!! Their has to be something out their that we haven't used that shes not going to be allergic to that is going to work for her. Ritalin helps alot. If I give it to her she doesn't sleep except about 3 hours.Even if I do just one time at 9 am. If you don't give it to her you can't live with her on any level. She cries for hours she screams about everything. She gets into everything. I had just let her go to the bathroom 9 years old by herself, for 2 minutes. I walked into her spraying shaving cream, pouring water in the body bath and in the hand sanitizer. I NEED A TIME OUT!!!! Seriously? What is going on? She's up all the time. In about 3 minutes of her being up I am ready to explode! Any suggestions are appreciated.
