Gavin fell down the steps

      6 Comments on Gavin fell down the steps

So Lizze talked to Gavin’s one teacher today while at breakfast with Elliott and Emmett.  She asked about Gavin’s fall down the steps and apparently he did technically fall down two steps. 
That being said, he didn’t hurt himself and picked himself back up before running back up the steps.


They said that they kept an eye on him and he was fine the rest of the day. 

Gavin actually told the truth, mostly. 

While I’m grateful he didn’t get hurt, this is really frustrating.  It’s frustrating because mixed into all the lies, resides at least some truth on occasion. 

Believe it or not, this makes things more difficult for us because now we truly never know what to think and believe.. We know that most of the time he’s lying to us but also on occasion, he’s at least partially truthful. 

It would be easier to deal with this if he wasn’t medically fragile. There wouldn’t be as much riding on whether or not we believed his.

I suppose all we can do is continue to verify his stories and if there aren’t any witnesses, we’ll have to make judgement call based on the current situation….

It’s like he’s trying to throw us off our game and limit out ability to figure out what he’s doing.

What am I saying? Of course he’s doing this to throw us off, that’s what he does……

i havent read the post before this but i do want to say that you know he is officially “mentally ill”. i want to use the analogy of the law and see if that helps. if he was to do something the law says is bad and went to trial he (hopefully) would be not responsible for his actions because he is mentally ill. i know that probaby makes you think bad things and i dont want you to go there in your head, but even if he is doing some of this or partiallly lying, it is his mental… Read more »

Therein lies the problem. You’re absolutely right, he’s mentally ill and the effects how he does things. However, along with the struggles of mental illness, he’s a Sociopath.

This one fact changes everything because he’s not capable of love and has no concern about others.

When he targets someone, he’s doing it because he doesn’t care or respect how they feel. All he knows is that it’s a means to an end.

Knowing what is what, happens to be one of the things driving me crazy..

promise (maybe) last post of the day. dont read this link i am posting here, i just wanted to show you where i am getting my information we know that antisocial personality disorder is the same as sociopath. being a sociopath is a mental illness in itself. you said “however, along with the struggles of mental illness, he’s a sociopath”. It is not “along with” it is another mental illness he did not choose. people have dual diagnosis as you know. the reason i am pointing this out is that he has more than one mental illness. I know… Read more »

Okay. This is where things become difficult. You’re right in regards to this not being his fault. That being said, it’s very difficult to understand you’ve experienced this personally. To be completely honest, I still struggle to accept that this is real and I live it everyday. Gavin’s brain is lacking the neurological connects that provide him with a conscience, the ability to bond with people, experience compassion and love. He’s always been this way and there is absolutely no fix. Because he doesn’t care and isn’t capable of remorse, he’s capable of anything because the only thing stopping him… Read more »

ok not last post of the day. when you said “it’s very difficult to understand you’ve experienced this personally.” i think you thought i meant mental illness and/or your situation. when i said “because anything can happen at anytime because i have lived that as well.” I meant that i have lived the part “where anything can happen at anytime” and “as well” meant some of my other stuff like my kid getting adult leukemia at 11, having a autoimmune diesese that only 300 in the US have, getting shot at 18 years old thru an apartment door while i… Read more »

Lol. I was referring to the sociopath aspect only. Everyone’s experience is relative.. 🙂
