Gavin’s been living in his visibly challenged world all day so far.. It’s getting a little frustrating for his brothers who want to spend time with him.
It’s really hard to know what to do because it’s not good that Gavin has lost touch with reality but at the same time, there isn’t much we can do about it right now. Our best option is to let him go for a little while and simply make sure that we pull him back out of his world after a little while and sorta encourage him to engage in reality and do something with his brothers.
This is so exhausting because there’s no clear cut, right or wrong answers here.
It’s just as easy, if not easier to the do the wrong thing than it is to do the right thing, without even knowing. It’s a great deal of pressure because I want to help him but I don’t really how to anymore.
I want him to be happy and experiencing these things that only he can see and hear are making him happy. There’s very fine line here and it’s not easy to navigate or stay on track because no one can tell us what we should be doing…
It’s frustrating for everyone involved and it’s going to make for a really long day…..
