Today my kids went to the doctor because they are all sick. When we got there the secretary handed me two masks because two of my kids had a fever and were coughing really hard.

When we started putting the masks on Ethan (neurotypical) and Luz (neurotypical), Raymond (Autistic) began screaming at the top of his lungs: "I want one!" over and over.

My face turned beet red. Even after we got a mask for him he still continued to scream. Parents were staring at him. It was so embarrassing. Then in the room, he had a staring spell. It only last for about 15 seconds and the doctor, Manny (husband) and I were trying to snap him out of it. When he started looking at us he started giggling and then started karate-style kicking me in the chest and belly. It was a rough day today. I feel like I am losing feels like he is regressing behaviorally. -LJ

My Son Austin Just turned seven and he has regressed in tolieting plus he's getting up nights so don't feel alone. Take a deep breath. I know sometimes it feels like they go backward instead of forward it's frustrating. They can be so brilliant one second and so backward the next.

Ladies I know that everytime we have a bad day I feel bad. My son was sick this week monday and tuesday were bad. But wednesday he felt fine but due to the school policy I had to keep him home. So thursday when it came time for school it was a terrible battle. I ended having to drag him phsically. I was so upset after it was over.

If it makes you feel better my seven year old son just acheived potty training. It is so new to us to have him wearing underwear that I am still not sure if i should cheer or not yet. I am cautiously opptunmistic.
