I think too much her, I don't sleep good ,I think too much and it just keep getting worse and worse. I couldn't even leave my room because I'm tried of crying. Number of times number of days I sit alone in complete darkness, just cry and then walk out like nothing even happened. Locked with in the walls of my own mind unable to escape reaching out for help that is not there my demons are inside no one can save me from myself. I have some times how hard I try to not cry but tears drop still fall. I have seen a world that's hard I'll have compassion in my heart, for I have known some pain. Nobody knows the thoughts that go through my head. When I am sad. I live in horrible world. I should be sleeping but my thoughts are wide awake. I always thought s of suicide because I fell alone in world because I depended too much her. I think a lot all the times actually in the middle of night. There was ON DOUBT in my mind a done deal because I needed to end my shitty life. I think suicide is a permanent solution to my temporary problem because I can't handle my future. I can't live without her. She is nice girl and intelligent.
Children should be brought up with utmost care. A child should not be your centre of attraction only because it is incapable to fend for itself, but also because it is not half as aware as you are or could be about its problems. Parents punish their children for the slightest of their mistakes; they at times even threaten children to bring home a lesson. Patience and observation are two key things in good parenting. The foibles of your child might indicate at an underlying medical condition. Instead of fixating over the mistakes try and locate the root cause. Early diagnosis of autism can save your child from a bleak future.
The following are a few symptoms of autism in children:
- Social interaction is a huge challenge: Children suffering from autism are usually noticed to live in a world of their own. They hardly listen to people around them or hardly talk. The presence of many people can scare them or make them conscious. When spoken to, they look away. They do not feel comfortable in revealing their joys or fears. Autistic children like to play alone; they are not interested in group activities with friends.
- Difficulties in communicating their needs: Communication is the biggest problem autistic children seem to face regularly. They are not able to express their needs and emotions. If they are hungry they might scream or break things but not ask for food. They even fail to comprehend instructions and seem confounded by simple situations. Their speech could comprise of mumbling. Autism in children could make them develop a condition popularly known as echolalia under the effect of which they mouth words without knowing their meanings in an extremely strange tone.
- An obsessive, repetitive behavior: Children with autism could be persistent in some of their actions. Their body gestures could be repetitive; for instance, they can continue flapping their arms for hours together. Children in certain cases are also very particular about routine. Quite strikingly, objects affect them and they might scrutinize an object meticulously.
- Sensory problems: Light sound and touch can have a huge impact on children suffering from autism. Patches of light and shade intrigue them whereas high pitched sounds could depress or intimidate them. They usually prefer deep pressure touch and might not respond to anything else.
