Born Anxious is a homegrown clothing label with two objectives, to make the clothes as comfortable as possible, whilst also remaining planet friendly, and to hold important information that will aim to help not only the child, but also the caregiver as well when required. As an autism mum myself, I have thought about what could help me and other caregivers whilst trying to be as generic as possible within the designs, alongside giving those the opportunity to personalise their products as well.


The worry when he stops eating

The worry when he stops eating

I’ve blogged before about eating it’s the most worrying thing with Autism , even worse when it’s Autism and being poorly , sensory eating goes out the window my Oscar shuts down  , not a morsel to pass his lips in 7 days he’s drinking but that’s it , I must admit he’s not lost that much weight and I’m assured by the doctor that his appetite will return ,but it’s day 8 tomorrow he’s refusing food and I’m worried , I’m really worried , it doesn’t just stop because someone says so , a whole week and not one cracker! 

Sensory eating and being tube fed are not the same battle or worry  , oscars eating is disorderly he gets hungry and strange times because his body clock is out of sync , but it takes him a very long time to accept new foods each time he’s poorly we have to build his trust up again for instance, he will cut foods out , one of the main things he used to love  was organic carrot bars then in the summer he became poorly and refused to eat them after that, and still won’t , as he only eats 5 foods total daily and won’t accept anything new offered, it’s my biggest fear that it’s now been so long he doesn’t trust any of them and refuses food , the knock on effect of him not eating is he can’t have his full doses of medication for  epilepsy or anxiety  , and it’s just so hard to know is it now fear of eating or is he still just not hungry after a viral infection .

 food and eating has to be the hardest thing for me to deal with I’ve accepted his eating is disorderly, but when he totally refuses it’s a whole new battle , some children with Autism are tube fed this breaks my heart .

I’m remaining hopeful for tomorrow
