The boys had a great day at school today, and in the way home, we stopped to visit my grandmother. We had a short visit before returning home blah blah blah.
Not to downplay the significance of the above paragraph but what I want to focus on tonight is what came out of therapy tonight. This is specifically in regards to Gavin.
Gavin was pumped and ready to tell us all about the missions he’s been on over the last couple of days. This shouldn’t be anything new or shocking to you, especially if you’re a long time reader. Gavin is Autistic and Schizophrenic among other things. As a result, he experiences things that only he can experience. In other words, he sees and hears things only he can see and hear.
While properly medicated, these occurrences were far less common, although they did still happen.
Anyway, Gavin rented for almost 45 minutes tonight about all that happened on these missions. Nothing was too far out of the ordinary for one of these mission debriefings, as I’ve affectionately dubbed them.
Honestly, I was getting stressed out just listening to him and had begun to tune him out because I’d heard most of this already.
It’s difficult for me to listen to his ramblings for a couple of reasons. For starters, I can only hear these stories so many times before I want to those sharpened pencils into my ears. It’s not that I’m disinterested, but it’s a constant topic of conversation throughout the day, and it gets old.
