Read my message section - I accidentally left a message for you on my profile page. LOL! I told you I was worse on the computer than you are.
I went to the pediatrician today and talked about the hairloss problem. She ordered bloodwork which I'll get done next week.
Next is the dermatologist and then the endocrinologist. I'm tired of all this. How are you doing?
Always thinking about you and Isabella!
Did you watch the "Temple Grandin" movie or get one of her books?
Thanks for the note!! I have an appt. for next week - only I am going. My husband is not happy about this at all. He is giving me such a hard time - he thinks it's a waste of time and money. He wants me to give up. Why does he have such a hard time with this? I don't understand why he doesn't want me to try and find the answers to their problems. Maybe I won't find the answer or maybe I will. Thanks for being the only person pushing me to do this. It's hard to be the only person trying to figure out such a big problem - you know how I feel. I know you are all alone with your daughter's problem. Has anything gotten better with Isabella? I pray for her all the time. Thanks again! We can do this.....I think.
Hello my friend! So we have to wait on the geneticist's results! I assume you didn't get the glucose results either yet.
Again, I wish I could help you. I hope you get some sleep. It's hard to handle problems on no sleep. It's hard to believe that one little person can have so many problems. This "going to the bathroom" problem is awful! Keep hanging in there!
Wondering how the visit with the geneticist went. Hope you are doing ok. I haven't heard from you in several days.
Leave me a note.
How is Isabella doing with the "poop" problem?
My sister gave me a movie about a woman named Temple Grandin - a high functioning autistic. I was wondering if you heard of her. Temple Grandin has also written several books about her autism. If you haven't heard of her, type her name into the computer and look up information on her.
Sorry! I just found a note that you left me telling me that she is high functioning autism. I don't know how I missed that note, but I did! My husband has a cousin that is badly autistic. My husband and my kids hover closely around Aspergers, but don't quite fit that diagnosis 100%. They all have good eye contact, and 2 out of 3 have some trouble socially. All my kids are sensitive to sound, one is also sensitive to taste and smells like my husband. Two out of three can't handle stress, like my husband. The gluten free diet helped my husband calm down, but he couldn't cheat al all. My oldest still does the diet and it helps her about 90% with mind racing, autoimmune eye problems related to psoriasis (100%) and weight loss. I exceeded my 800 letters.
Where is Isabella on the autistic spectrum - is she high functioning (communicates with people, learns, etc.) or is she full blown autistic? Is she picky with food? Do you think she'd notice the diet change? Does she attend school?
The gluten free/milk free diet is the only diet that seems to show improvement in autistic kids (not all, but a decent amount). I would start with the gluten free diet first. See what improves. Give it a few months (at least three). I'm not sure what gluten free foods are available in Canada. We have Whole Foods around my area - they have gluten free bagels, breads, desserts, etc. to replace the usual. Most of them taste like the real thing. And gluten free products can be microwaved. Get back to me.
