Grant me patience

Grant me patience

Gavin is driving me absolutely crazy. He will not stop talking and is doing everything in super fast mode. He doesn’t appear all there today.

I’m trying to be as patient as possible but it’s not easy and I’m forced to attempt to block him out,  so as to keep me from going over the edge. He’s stressing out about Christmas and won’t stop talking about it. I have had to ban the subject for right now because I just can’t take hearing about it anymore.

I’m concerned that our attempts to be sensory friendly have already failed as Gavin appears to heading in the direction of another psychotic break.

When that happens, Gavin loses touch with reality. This means he will no longer be able to tell the difference between what’s real and what’s in his head. This hasn’t happened since last year but it’s usually triggered by extreme levels of anxiety which can be brought on by overstimulation.

With Christmas almost here,  Gavin is extremely over stimulated and experiencing high levels of anticipation of what’s to come…..

This is going to be a very long 2.5 weeks of Christmas break……

Are you willing to push his Christmas up to stop the anticipation? I know it seems like it may defeat the purpose of Christmas but I don't think Santa will mind coming by early to help out your little guys.
My recent post No, not every kid acts like this…

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
