It's not safe to go to the bathroom...

I go to the bathroom -- Andrew comes screaming - someone is at the door, someone is at the door.
I rush out and look out the window - crazy wife from next door and her hunchback neighbor friend are on my lawn. What in the hell?

They were screaming. I let them be. Jim isn't home and Andrew was scared - so I did not open the door.

Now Andrew keeps asking "will the evil woman come back?" He is so scared. I told him not to worry - now I think his nightmares this week have been because of the Sunday episode (see Exhibit A).

This is insanity. I'm moving to the country.

Andrew hasn't figured out yet that Mamas kick butt and take NO names when it comes to protecting their babies.

When my kids are scared they don't even go to Joe....they come to me and sleep on the floor by my side of the bed. It drives Joe crazy. LOL

Andrew knows that I would protect him but he has all the anxiety and worry that comes with autism. Yesterday going to therapy at Hofstra University(we go to three sessions a week) - I pulled in a spot and it said "Visitors only violators will be towed"...he almost started hyperventilating - "Mommy, please, please, please back out and find another spot". (He's been reading since 3 1/2). Even though I told him we were a visitor and not a student and we were okay - he couldn't calm down until I moved. If we make a wrong turn when driving and someone slips up and says "oops we went the wrong way" - he becomes so worried "are we lost? are we lost?" He has finally stopped worrying about the "evil woman". Sometimes things take weeks/months to pass - sometimes days. It's a crap shoot.

I think you should have called the police.
That's unacceptable. Poor Andrew.
