Behavior Issues in Sensory Processing Disorder
If you asked me how life has been lately, I would tell you crazy. Every day seems to be a new behavior problem with Korey and his SPD. Behavior is so far the only thing that isn’t being flat out treated, because he is so behind on some developmental problems and now they want to look into his psychical aspects, I’m awaiting him being tested from the school.
On top of this, he also became sick this past weekend and has not been able to go back to school. He has a lot of mucus building up and then has the worse cough that brings it up and ends up making him throw up. As I’m trying to give him the bucket he’s yelling and crying at me “mommy no bucket” because he thinks that the bucket is what MAKES him sick. Then he proceeds to hug me and say “I’m sorry mommy” and just fall asleep on me.
Nothing makes me feel more like a mother than being needed by him, he makes me feel as if I’m his medicine. These times I secretly cherish, yes I like it a little bit when he is sick. He expresses his love so much better for me, and his behavior issues slow down because he just doesn’t have the energy. I know I’m a bad mom.
December 10th we have the appointment for the evaluation for Korey having PT. I hate watching these evaluations. The instruction provides the task they needed complete and I watch my son just completely not get it and do whatever he wants. He doesn’t understand that what he is considering play time, is this person telling how what he is doing is wrong and what is expected of him. Reminds me of the times I liked not fitting in with ‘society’ in middle and high school, and how I embraced being myself. Now himself is wrong and I have to help correct that.
No matter what I will always embrace his uniqueness.
