I am taking my 6 yr old kiddo for a psych eval next week. Thanks for saying all you said above, BRLK. It mimics what I have found true, excruciatingly. Though dysregulation has mostly revolved around being over tired, I am seeing a lot more dysregulation over frustration of social events these days; It is so overwhelming I teared up just reading your response and others. The big feelings, the extra need for structure, the immaturity being so significant that it impairs behavior and social relationships AND then not feeling successful in those areas double impacts kids and their coping behavior. And I would give my left arm for calm because everything feels always in motion or imploding.
And I feel like a helicopter parent, not really wanting to be. Near everything requires follow up, external motivation, etc. I think it is the mood fluctuations that I am most exhausted by. Never knowing when or what may be coming.
