Today I have a doctor's appointment. I really... REALLY- hope that she will put me back on Zoloft. ( an anti anxiety med my previous doctor had me on before our insurance changed) It helped me miraculously. With out it I feel like I am losing it every second of everyday. I worry about everything. And I am stressed out every moment.
But one of those worries I have- I know is VERY relevant. I am worried about my sons communication. He is almost three and I know he does not communicate at his level. He does not ask for things. He either whines when he wants something, throws a fit, gets it himself or just points and says "wow" or reaches out and says "here go". He says thanks. He can recognize and count numbers from one to 10. He knows and recognizes some of the alphabet. He is repeating everything you say. But mostly makes sounds and gibber- jabbers. His annunciation is horrible. He speaks a language I call Zyonese. I know it is because he is with me all day every day and is not properly socialized. I have wanted him to be in Daycare for a few hours a week just to get that socialization. But until I have a vehicle (or some sort of transportation) I feel helpless. Another thing is I am wondering if his ears are still plugged up? (doctors and family says its common) because he is saying d's instead of b's and other annunciation issues. I try to repeat things clearly and slowly over and over and try to get him to watch the movements of my mouth- but he just is not picking up those details.
