Pardon me while I scream. We're having the age old problem of wanting to not eat so we can stim again.
But then daddy fires up the lawn mower, and 2 bites into it it's "all done?" Said over and over with furtive glances at the window, longing to stand there and stare at the big loud thing with wheels, a giant stim machine, if you will.
I swear. The whole stimming/perseveration thing really really REALLY grates my nerves. You were just SCREAMING with hunger, but fire up a *@#!! lawn mower, and it's all over? WTF? This kid would probably stim until he starved to death if we let him. It makes me so so so angry and frustrated and I just want to scream.
