How do you cope with such a thing when you are on your own? Do they improve as they get older? How will she cope at school? Do they go to a special school, or normal? I can't even get her to learn her ABCs, and she won't sit still to look at books or puzzles - only dvds. I spend all day cleaning one end of the apartment whilst she destroys - and I mean destroys - the other. I have nothing left that she hasn't broken. Whenever I tell her to stop doing something, she does, but then she goes right back to it over and over, even if I shout. She has no boundaries, and will just run away if you don't watch her - she also climbs like a monkey, so nowhere is a safe area in my apartment.
I have no support at all - I love her more than life itself, but sometimes I fear for her future of a normal life, and sometimes she drives me crazy! I am a single mum with an autistic child, and it feels really lonely and scary.
