I just want the screaming to stop :(

Nothing is going as planned this morning.. and are doing pretty well and they are ready to make the trip to the immunologist in Cleveland. Emmett on the other hand, is another story completely..

Anxiety is definitely getting the better of Emmett today.

He’s refusing to go to because he doesn’t feel well. He says that he feels like he’s going to throw up. Maybe he doesn’t feel well. Maybe he’s actually getting sick. Then again, maybe he’s not.

  

What I suspect is that his stomach ache is the result of him being anxious about going to school by himself, without his big brother Elliott. 

I think he’s experiencing , which we all know can upset ones tummy.

Emmett has been hysterical this morning and frankly, I don’t know what to do. It’s been one meltdown after another and we’ve only been up for about an hour and a half. 

It is possible that he’s coming into another fever cycle because I’ve been noticing a change in behavior over the last 48 hours and that’s usually a good sign of a pending fever flare.

Regardless of the cause, I’m still left with the problem of what to do. 

At this point, it looks like I’m just going to have to take him with us. If this is a flare up, the doctor we’re going to is the doctor that treats this for him. 

Perhaps this has worked out for the best? 

I just want the screaming to stop….. The constant screaming can really break you down.

    I have a question about the .  I’ve never dealt with them in regards to an autistic child, but what would happen if you just let him melt down without trying to ‘fix the problem’?

    Sing! I know that sounds like a really weird thing to suggest in the midst of what can seem like utter hell when the screaming has gone on for a while, but I seriously find that if I just stop what Im doing and get down to my sons level and start singing a song he recognizes it seems to distract him, I dont sing loudly to try and drown out the screaming and noise, infact I sing softly so that he has to strain to listen, because then he gets quieter in an attempt to hear what Im saying. When he then realizes I’m singing he’ll stop and just stare at me, if I’m lucky he’ll start trying to sing, but most of the time he will just come over to me and just touch me while I sing. After that its a lot easier to move on from the situation. Its almost like having a “reset” button. Cant promise it’ll work every time, and if you do it it may take a while the first few times. Just stick to 1 song, a soft song, an upbeat song, something he knows. and just repeat it over and over.

  • It’s funny you say that because that’s exactly what I do. I turn the radio on and sing along. It may not always help the boys but it helps me maintain my sanity. 🙂
