By 8am, the day was already lost

Elliott is our 7 year old aspie.  He’s brilliant and amazes me each and every day with intelligence, insight and compassion.

Having said that, Elliott suffers from rather extreme anxiety.

That anxiety was kicked into overdrive last night when a large, loud and very active storm system moved into the area. It was all we could do to get him to go to sleep last night.


This morning, he woke up, came into our room and checked out my phone for the forecast. Once he saw that the outlook for today was more storms, he began what ended up being an anxiety attack that lasted for about 1.5 hours.

We couldn’t even get him dressed for school, let alone eat breakfast.

Lizze called the school while I was trying to calm Elliott down and explained what was happening.  They could hear him freaking out and told us to just keep him home.

At the moment, I’m not in the best of places. 

Lizze is sick again today and Elliott and Emmett have been screaming all morning. I’m at my wits end and beginning to stress out myself. 

I don’t think the Serenity Prayer will be enough today, no matter how many times I repeat it today.
