Will it ever stop?
These last two weeks have been so hard. Levi's sensory issues have gone through the roof! It seems like everything I try, makes him madder. He wants a squeeze but says it hurts. Wants a soft back rub and screams I'm hurting him. Won't eat certain foods, gags on drinking water, changes his clothes 3 to 4 times a day because they hurt him, is back to banging his head and rubbing it on the floor. Wants to be alone, but doesn't want me far away. I feel like our world has been turned upside down and inside out. I'm trying to stay calm and telling myself this usually lasts 2 to 4 weeks than it gets better again for awhile. But I am so tired. It's starting to really effect the other two boys. Gavin (our youngest) is starting to do some of these things now. He doesn't have SPD, he just sees his older brother do it so he thinks its normal. Right now the big question is if Levi should have his own room. It's tearing me up though, because that means Caleb will have to go down stairs or Gavin will have to go into Caleb's room. Oh, I wish things were different. I never thought my family would go through this. I really could go into a hole and sleep awhile.
