We were at the dentist this afternoon and I was not sure what kind of reaction to expect from her….
Last time she asked me to stay out in the waiting room and she wanted to go in and do the visit all by herself like a grown up….
This time was the total opposite 😦
She was already crying and in a repetitive loop even before we reached the door to the building.
The dental assistant was waiting when we came in and she saw Juli’s emotions right away.
She told me quietly that there is a good chance we will have to postpone as Juli is way to upset to get anywhere :(.
Juli’s autistic tendencies were showing themselves more than I have seen them in a long time. In fact longer than I can remember….
She was holding her hands over her ears, rocking slowly back and forth and leaning her head forward. I have rarely seen her do that. For some reason this visit was very upsetting to her.
And so unexpected since last time she insisted on doing the whole check up on her own.
We have to go back in a month in the morning and try again….
