Triggers for Meltdowns

What are the known triggers that cause your child to go into meltdown mode?

For my daughter they are as listed :

1) Being told NO/ not getting her way
2) Having to wait
3) Daddy issues
4) When she is hungry
5) When she is tired
6) Doing homework/ handwriting
7) Change in routine
8) Being corrected

Then the other cause is internal and a complete mystery! There is no rythme or reason behind it. She can be happy one moment, then BOOM, the next moment she is having a meltdown! It comes from a non-logical place. The only way it can be explained is that she has a mood disorder, like Bipolar.

When she was in the hospital, the doctor said he felt like she has a mood disorder. He was heistant to give an official DX, because of her limited speech and the behaviors being hard to separate from the Autism.
