Yesterday we had the meeting to get the results for our daughter's IEP evaluation and they are saying that they witness no autism in her or ODD behaviors. They say the only area she needs help is in some speech therapy. And even that is BS. What they say is her problem is much worse. They totally contradicted themselves. They say they see no autistic behavior but when we said about her rocking and flipping, pressing her face, walking on side of feet, etc. they are "oh we've seen that." HOW do we get help??? Now that we have the IEP that basically says she is NOT autistic (even tho she has been diagnosed by a specialist) the regional center probably won't help us. They base their support on the school IEP mostly. HEr behavior at home seems to be totally different. When at home she is defiant, sassy, won't listen at times. IT is difficult to get her to even get dressed in the morning. She cries about everything and goes into meltdowns or fits over the smallest thing. Another thing that was contradictory was that they say there is no problem but then her am and afternoon teachers say they see a major change in her in afternoon in behvior and could we possibly give her meds in afternoon. OK. There is no problem but they want us to medicate her more! What do we do to get help? We are transferring her to another school closer to home because we moved and are hoping to get better help there. Our rights say that we can request another independent eval at school cost if we do not agree, but it also says they can deny the request. The psychologist keeps saying autism has to be "pervasive" in all areas, not just at home, like we are idiots. I am ready to throw my arms up in the air and scream. Actually I did do that last week one day. lol. Any help? Any friends out thete? I need support. I am quickly losing all peace in my life.

My girlfriend broke up with me yesterday and blocked all methods of communication with her because she knows she "won't be able to stay away". I know she still loves me and I need to get her back. The problem is she lives in Vancouver and I live in NYC and I haven't worked in 6 months because of a church music project that required for me to be away from home for that amount of time. My savings...
Sometimes I wonder how it feels to just die, release all the pain and all depresion that haunting me. Work, home, love, friends all screwed up, whats the meaning of life then? all the things that complete me just keep fading away, my dream job, my dream life, all my dream. Its pretty clear that my only path is to join to the God, :( I am sorry mom, I let you down. I am sorry....
