My head is spinning and don't know how I'm suppose to take the news that my seeming perfectly happy 18 month old may be autistic... Went in for her 18 month check up not suspecting anything and left feeling like our world has been turned upside down.. She has issues with not wanting anyone touching her hands, personal space, not saying as many words as they'd like, walking in circles, not "playing" with her toys, and occasionally spaces out.. How do they take that information and say that she may be autistic? I love my daughter with all my heart and know that no matter what she is still my little girl and nothing has changed in the sense of who she is and why I love her... But I am so angry that she has to go through this. I didn't want to believe it but since I now have two dr's saying the same thing I can't just keep my head in the clouds anymore.. I don't know what to do or how to do it..
