The week has started on a rough note. Gavin is struggling and melting down over everything. The self injury is becoming more serious. He is smashing his head into his knees and the sound is horrible. I know it has to hurt him and if he’s doing it for attention we cannot react. I am worried because he just seems to keep esculating. I wish I knew what was happening to him.
Elliott is SO whiny all the time. He isn’t sleeping well and cries over everything. He is collecting little things like trinkets. Dr. Patti says that is typical behaviour for a foster child. I am so worried about him. It keeps me up at night.
Emmett is just into everything he can possibly be in to. School starts this week for him and hopefully we will see some improvement and maybe a few new words. I would be happy to just hear 1 word, just 1.
We are over booked this week with appointments. We have Akron at least once and about 3 appointments a day all week. I hope we make it through to the weekend.

Thanks for sharing your story. It is hard. I wake up each day not knowing what to do. Helpless…..
My son also smashes his head onto his knees so i know the sound well. It really concerns me the damage he must be doing not just to his head but his knees as well.
Hard isnt it.
