I wanted to take a few minutes and talk about the fallout from yesterday’s RAD tantrum. Elliott was probably the most visibly affected by the events of yesterday.
He doesn’t want to be in his room alone. When there, he breaks down in tears.
Elliott is so anxious to start with that these tantrums push him over the edge. It can take days for him to relax and come down from his anxiety high.
On the other hand we have Emmett.
Emmett tends to become more easily frustrated and therefore more aggressive. This also makes him much less cooperative.
Lizze is barely able to move today as she in a fibro flare. There’s no doubt that the stress from yesterday has exacerbated her symptoms. Stress is a fibro sufferers worst enemy.
Life takes upwards of a few days at times, to return to “normal”.
It’s important to understand that simply because the tantrum has ended, doesn’t mean it’s over.
