was just having a fit where she was crying and trying to bite herself. I had to help my dad hold her arms and head so she couldn’t. It was intense. She is very strong.
What age is she ?
Like 12 I think.
Oooh, that’s a bad meltdown.
I’m sorry @Bowens
My nephew has mild autism and he goes into these rages when things don’t go his way.
I have meltdowns too
I hope she feels calmer soon.
She seems ok now. Not sure what set her off. It lasted a good 10 mins I’d say…it was a long 10 mins lol
That’s good to hear.
Glad she’s doing better.
Do they have meds for autism like sz?
i don’t think so… they never gave me something for my autism directly… i think the meds i take help me for the autism too though… but i’m not sure about it
I don’t know. She takes birth control pills I think. But I don’t really know why.
Let me ask. 15151
Ok so antipsychotics are used to help autism.
That’s interesting. Thanks @firemonkey
My dad says they recently put her on Venlafaxine…or something like that. we think it is a mood stabalizer.
i wish they had a cure for autism and sz
