We had a really difficult morning because Emmett would not tolerate shoes or socks once again.
I went last night and tried to find new socks that he might be more comfortable with but he wouldn’t even try them on. This morning however, he was finally able to put on one of the pairs of new socks but would not tolerate any type of shoe over top of them.
After about 90 minutes of exhaustive effort, we finally got him to wear his slippers. He wasn’t happy about it but it happened.
The battle to reach that point was horrible. The screaming was overwhelming for us but the whole thing was beyond overwhelming for Emmett. This thing is heartbreaking and I don’t know what else to do.
We’ve tried deep pressure, countless different types of socks, countless numbers of shoes, brushing, joint manipulation, sensory rice box and even foot massages. We’ve even tried to straight up bribe him as well.
It’s so bad at this point, Lizze and I are actually considering homeschooling him.
This morning has totally burnt me the fuck out, and we still have four more days to go this week.
