It’s no secret that I’m worried about Gavin for a great many reasons. I love this kid to death and will continue to do whatever I can to help him live the best life he possibly can. At the same time, I’m a human being and have limits to what I can deal with. Having said that, Gavin is driving me absolutely crazy.
I’m stressed out enough with everything going on around me and that puts a serious strain on the limited resources in which I use to cope with life.
Gavin has spent the bulk of his life as an incessant talker and unfortunately, that’s something that seems to be getting ever more incessant. I don’t know what you call a significantly increased level of incessant talking but it’s unbelievably draining.
For the last few days especially, Gavin has been following me around the house, talking about every single thought that enters his brain. He’s doing the second thing when it comes to his games, as he has to constantly talk about them.
To supplement that incessant amount of talking, Gavin is verbally explaining every single step of every thing he’s doing. He’s not trying to be difficult and he certainly isn’t trying to drive me crazy, but unfortunately, his intentions don’t make the reality of the situation any easier to deal with.
It feels like a form of torture that some of you will be able to relate to and others, not so much. I’m always grateful that Gavin is verbal but sometimes I wish I could turn it off because my brain is on overload. The constant talking is absolutely exhausting both physically and emotionally. I’m completely spent already today and can’t wait to close my eyes for the day.
