I have a feeling this is going to be a long post. So readers beware.
I am getting very worried! My mother brought up her thoughts about my son possibly being autistic well over a year ago. I freaked out and started crying and researching. My husband was angry. Everyone else in my family convinced me not to worry and that he was fine. His third birthday is in February 9th. My mother is bringing up autism again. And again I am getting very stressed out. I am planning on calling a ??? what today. Someone to get him tested. I am not really sure if I should be looking for a pediatrician, a psychologist, a regular family doctor? I also am not sure what of his behavior could be considered normal, a developmental delay that he will catch up ... or whatever else. When researching online- I get every answer... yes, no, maybe.... It's this, it's that, it's nothing. I woke up early to another "fridge raid". By this I mean he has gotten into the fridge and dumped things all over the place. He has done this multiple times. He always gets in trouble. THIS TIME- I had a lock on the fridge. And when I was expressing that this was a no no in my mommies mad tone. And that he should know better- he just looked at me like he didn't know better. It seemed to me all the other times he realized he was not suppose to do that. But now I don't know.
He wakes up go go go every morning. I am so tired.
There are so many things that he does (or doesn't do) that are not consistent with Autism. I really am not sure that he has a hearing problem... He has moments where he will just repeat everything we say. I don't know..... Right now I am just a very worried, upset, confused mother.
