More bloodcurdling screams and massive meltdowns after midnight  

I didn’t get a chance to write much today, and there’s a good reason for that. I was up all night with both Elliott and Emmett. I don’t know why Elliott was up but it’s concerning when we’ve possibly got Bipolar disorder on the radar. 

As for Emmett, he was nauseous and running a fever. He was set up on the couch, with a puke bucket and a very low threshold for anything. 

Being up all night would have been bad enough, but he wasn’t just awake. Emmett was having massive meltdowns into the wee hours of the morning. These weren’t mini-meltdowns either. It was a super surprised that someone didn’t call the police kind of meltdowns. 

This, of course, didn’t help Elliott sleep, but he was already not sleeping before these began. 

Gavin ended up sleeping through the entire thing, while Lizze helped but I sent her to bed around 2 am because her night-time meds were kicking in and she needed to sleep. 

I can’t explain how it feels to endure meltdowns after midnight. Meltdowns suck at any time, but especially that early in the morning. All I can say is it’s absolutely horrible, for all involved. 

Emmett ended up falling asleep about 4:30 am, but Elliott never did. I’m so tired, and beyond overwhelmed. I’m completely drained, and desperately want to avoid a repeat tonight.

Wonderful is a stretch but I really appreciate the compliment. Meltdowns are hard on everyone involved, especially the person actually having it..
