My daughter Kristen will be 5 in June. She sees a counselor to help deal with anger issues(she bites herself) and they have also told me she has an adjustment disorder. She has also been showing some other symptoms such as impulsiveness, distractibility, extremely painfully shy in social situations. She will even hide from family and is terrified to be around any family members. She prefers to be home over anything else. She hates loud noises, is positively terrified of them, toilets flushing, vacuums.etc. These noise fears are increasing in frequency more and more, she most recently has had some breakdowns in school when the other kids in her class got a little too loud. I am waiting an assesment from a pediatric neurologist, but am told this may take awhile. The med nurse at her counseling place met with her too and told me she is showing signs of possibly aspergers or adhd. She seems to think that we should just wait and see how things progress with Kristen because of her age. I think things are getting worse and I really hate just waiting. Is there anything I can be doing to help her through the noise issues? Thanks. :O)

My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
