V is really not doing well right now.... He cannot handle ANY kind of seperation (husband or myself). Every Morning, at preschool, it is a drama. He shakes, flap his hands, tries to contain tears and eventualy REALLY cries with desperate calls. I take the time he needs 'cause I know it is not an act. It is A LOT more than "he'll stop as soon as you'll turn around". He even asked me why he can't stop crying. He also asked to see Ms. T, his behavioral therapist. I explained we'll see her next week, and he replied by "is it long? Can we see her tomorrow?". At night, I'm back to using melatonin despite: weighted blanked, white noise machine, night lamp, scented lavender candle and the never ending routine. He litteraly paniced knowinng that husband has to go to work tonight. We are able to calm him down, but it is sooo hard on him. And it is only getting worst. I'm progressing with the sensory room, but even that is a problem. Full tantrum because hos brother was playing with a new ball while V was getting a cookie! He would just scream, shout, cry and yet not move from the cookie jar. We asked him to go to his retreat and husband did some yelling (REALLY rare for husband). Anything sets him off. When he is like that, I just don't know what to do besides trying to be as patient as I can be. It is really wearing me off. I'm reading the "out-of-sync child " along with "the ou-of-sync child has fun". I learno a lot about sensory processing disorder (SPD), but all the suggested (a lot of them) activities: he already does them on a daily basis! It is not structured in the sense that I just let him play, but he does have access to a lot of intuitive therapy already. It's great and it's probably why he has not gone out of control already, but how can we make things better? Will 1hour/week of Occupational Therapist (OT) really make that much difference? And to top it off, my parents are coming back in November. Way too soon!! It will be more transitioning and disruptied routines for V. I did have a talk with my mother though. And really explained that V cannot collapse at every of there visit. Now they know the problem is real, they will have to follow my lead NO MATTER WHAT. Can't wait for therapist next week.
