Gavin took a bath this afternoon. That’s nothing unusual, in and of itself. What is notable however, is what happened after his bath and I’m not sure how worried I should be.
While he was getting himself dressed, he looked in the mirror, which is high enough that it only reflects his head, neck and chest.
He explained that while looking at his reflection in the mirror, he saw white geometric shapes, separated by black lines. He was unable to answer any questions because he didn’t know how to answer them.
I asked him to draw a picture of what he’s talking about, because without us understanding what he’s experiencing, it’s much harder to help him.
His drawing however, doesn’t help is as much as I was hoping it would. At the same time, maybe it does and this is just something we don’t have enough of an understanding about. Perhaps his neurologist will hear about this and say, hey, this is what he’s describing and this is what we can do about it.
Truthfully, that’s probably a pipe dream but we can hope…
Below is the picture he drew for me. I’m not sure what to make of it but it reminds me of a fucking Rorschach test. lol
