difficult child usually is not anxious, but wow today and last night have been crazy. He was playing with the neighbors yesterday afternoon and got whacked/poked right underneath the eye with a stick. Came home upset, but not out of control. His eye was swollen, but he opened it ok. I looked at it and it was a little red, but not too bad. Later in the evening he was so upset he was crying and starting to hyperventilate, could not go to sleep, and anytime I said anything I was yelling. I was not yelling, tho I felt lilke it. He woke up the same way this morning, but now refuses to open his eyes!! He says it hurts and if he opens one eye the other one will open too. I did not send him to school, as he is not in the right frame of mind for that. He opened the sore eye enough for me to get a little look, and it is red but not bad. I think it is anxiety, and it is crazy. I am trying to not buy into it, he made his way to the bathroom and then stood in the hallway screaming as he could not see. I hope this stops soon. I was going to work tonight to pick up extra hours (badly needed) but the way he is acting I can't. husband does not deal well with this type of behavior at all.
