I really need to get better organized. DD needs to go downstairs at her apartment building to get her lunch. Someone from the apartment complex goes to get the lunches for the elderly and disabled. But she has to be down there by 10:00AM.

If she is not down there then she will miss it because the lunches go quick. I forgot yesterday. Even though the DSP is there if I do not remember it does not get done. I figure since not all the DSPs cook they need to go get the food. Besides the fact that if her stomach is full the behaviors are easier for her to control and the medication works better.

She does not eat with the other people though because they complain about the food. Then DD does not want to eat it. One of the autistic behaviors she has is mimicing the people around her. The food is perfectly good. Just like if someone cooked. Some days a little spicey or salty. Some days better than others.

I am just amazed that even though she is an adult, in her own apartment, with a DSP, I do the remembering. Does anyone else have this experience?
