I notice when we have a holiday, especially Christmas, My son's behavior becomes unmanagable. He likes to get up at 6:55a.m. If he sleeps past this time... We have a melt down! If he gets frustrated about something, he'll say: " I can't take this anymore, I don't know what to do, I want to die, I want to kill myself, I hate my brain!" He is 10 years of age. He does not know he has autism, We tried to tell him a few months ago, but , he flipped out. This is so.. Hard to deal with, and their isn't the help available for kids my son's age. He was in IBI from age two to age five and that was it. I do have an OT working with him, as he still has trouble dressing himself, still can't tie shoes. She visits the school once a month. And that's all we have! My hubby and I feel so alone! Has anyone gone or going through this? If so, how did you deal with it? Thank you so much! P.S. Happy 2009 to everyone!!!!!!!!!!!!!
