Yep, there is such a thing as too much fun for my difficult child. We had a super busy week of fun activities at school and bowling Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday nights. I am exhausted and crashed for a 2 hour nap this afternoon. difficult child came to me this evening. He is afraid! He is having problems breathing, he feels weird, he feels like throwing up. He asked his teacher for Motrine at noon since we didn't know what time we would get home (out at noon but I stayed to help move the book fair). I told him he was very tired from this week's activities and he may be getting whatever his dad had yesterday and today (flu like symptoms). I tend to be nonchalant about things so as not to increase his worries. If I don't appear concerned then it is easier for him to work through it. At one point, I came out of the bathroom to hear difficult child say to husband, "She acts like she doesn't care about me." I thought he was talking about the puppy but soon figured out he was talking about me. I told him that he needs to get some sleep tonight and he will feel better in the morning. That everyone gets run down and sick from time to time, nothing to be afraid of. He will not die - though he believes he will stop breathing in the middle of the night tonight. He just came and asked to be put back on the medications. I told him that he needs to implement his coping skills first. He needs a good long night's sleep. I am sure he will be fine tomorrow. Being bored and super tired triggers his anxiety. Do you ever wonder which is worse, having your child feeling fears of anxiety or having your child act in ways that hurt others? This question went through my mind a lot last year as we were struggling with the extremes of both.
