Friday was a rougher day for Gavin. He just wasn’t listening and couldn‘t settle down. When he took a shower before bed, he flung the wet towel and shattered the light in the shower room.
We had several instances that Lizze or I had to confront Gavin for his behavior and also hold him accountable.
To his credit, Gavin kept his cool and while he became frustrated, he never totally melted down. I would have to say that’s a positive thing. Wouldn’t you? It would be really nice if this trend continued and he actually started making better choices.
Life would become a bit more bearable.
To be completely honest, we have way too much on our plate with just his health issues. The behavioral issues only add to the overall stress and chaos of our everyday lives. If the behavioral issues were more manageable, we could devote more attention to his health and that would be huge.
If he does indeed have mitochondrial disease, that could be affecting so many aspects of his life..
