Autism… When Did It Start? Pt. 2 - AKA - Josie, Age 1 to 1.5

Josie’s first birthday party was a big affair.  We had dozens of people over, set up a big tent outside, and enjoyed the sunshine.  Our daughter was at her finest, toddling along, smiling at everybody, and enjoying herself.  While she didn’t have much interest in her unwrapping her presents, or eating her cake, everybody had a wonderful time.  I was pregnant again by that point, although we had told very few people, as we didn’t want to take the attention away from Josie on her big day.

Autistic Days Versus Normal Days

I’d like to preface this post by saying that my child, like any other child with Autism, has Autism everyday.  Autism is not a disease that can be treated until it is gone.  Autism is a disorder, it will always be there, but we strive to treat the symptoms.  However, Josie has what I refer to as “Autistic Days” and “Normal Days”.  She also has days that are somewhere in between.

When did it all start?  This is a question I have spent a lot of time torturing myself with.  When did it get bad, that I know for sure.  Sometime between March and May of 2012 the severity of the situation escalated.  But, when did it start?  How did I not notice?  Looking back, there had been some warning signs for a while.

Rubber Duckies and Spoons... The Beginning.

My life has been in turmoil for the last 8 months.  I have been dealing with a lot of things.  The birth of our new baby Sofia, the aftermath of it with some postpartum depression.  The new responsibility of caring for two children, rather than just one.  But,  the most difficult thing, something I scoffed at when my husband first mentioned it, something I didn't want to believe…  Something that nobody outside of family, close friends, and doctors have been told of…  Still, we have no definitive diagnosis, but, I think it’s time to start sharing our story.  So here it is:
