One of the things we struggle with in the Lost and Tired family on an almost daily basis, are sensory issues. By far, Emmett struggles the most as he has the most sensory processing issues.
As long as I can remember, Emmett has had a hard time with things like clothes and especially shoes and socks.
These have never really gone away. He does seem to cope better on some days than on others. I think stress has a lot to do with it. He’s definitely gotten worse since he’s lost occupational therapy.
Lately we’ve been dealing with a lot of problems related to his shoes and socks. He’s always complaining that his socks are “itchy”. We go through the motions of checking and even brushing his foot. Sometimes it helps and other times it doesn’t.
I can’t tell you how many times he will stop dead in his tracks and either get really upset or simply sit down and pull his shoe and sock off.
Oddly enough, it seems to be his right foot more often than his left.
Lizze and I had the boys out to the playground again today and it happened a lot today.
All of a sudden he would just plunk down and take his shoe off, in an attempt to make the sensation go away.
It’s really tough to watch him go through this all the time.
