Autism and regulation
I always look on the bright side and have a positive mindset but also allow myself to recognise that sometimes it just hard. My daughter was so exited to go to her first school disco, I went along to help and she was totally in her element and had the best time. I knew perfectly well there would be a huge comedown from the sensory overload, but she is so good at masking it always happens in the car. Not this time though. Huge meltdown of all the emotions in front of all her little friends and school, one of those big ones where there’s simply nothing you can do. Ended in me having to pick her up screaming and carrying her kicking and crying to the car 😭 Home now and emotions are now super heightened and crazy, she has no recollection of the night…now to wait for the next comedown. So grateful she enjoyed her disco, made my heart so happy. But for once l wish she could enjoy something without the after effects 💔 such an overwhelming world for them!
