Finally some answers - I hope

Ok, a little background..
When I was pregnant with Natalie, I said I was having a boy or a problem girl.. well I got the latter. hopefully I didn't jinx myself.. Natalie has been a difficult child. And until the last 18mo I just thought it was her being a P.I.T.A. but i questioned it. Toward the end of last year I requested that Nat be assessed, for what I didn't know. probably ADD. Until recently a friends daughter was diagnosed with Aspergers. I went through the check list, and a heap of other information and Nat displays alot of the signs of aspergers. so... Once again I headed to my GP and now have a referral to a child psychologist. Aug5.. I should know more. so wish me luck.

its a relief to think that maybe she isn't doing it on purpose.. and I can look at her in a different light reminding myself that she can't help the way she is..
