Just a Taste

I decided to post the video. All you will see is her screaming/breathing thing she has been doing lately. It lasts about 2 minutes and does not even show her slamming her body into the window or the hurtful things she said. She had already thrown cups and folders across the room and ripped up her plastic folder and homework all b/c she refuses to bring home her agenda. This was somehow my fault. You will hear me at the very end telling her she has a choice and then it shut off. Her choice, as always, is to stop screaming and scaring the kids or do it as much as she wants out on the porch. This fit was short compared to some of hers and was only about 30 minutes. She was very remorseful and apologetic after and did her best to comfort all the kids. You can't see her drooling all over herself, she does this every time she gets upset. She had no idea I taped her until after. You can see why I was worried the first time she did this, I thought she was hyperventilating. Sorry it is sideways.

Oh my gosh, poor kid... Must be scary to be so out of control!

I can't get it. I changed all my settings to take all cookies and nothing works. Any ideas???

Lisa said...

I got it! This looks very familiar.

Tudu,

Thank god Patches has got you. I have no end of admiration for the way you deal with things, you are a fantastic mum to her, and all the kids!

And I agree with Nicki, it must be really scary to Patches also, I hope that somebody can find some way, be it through medicine, or any other way to help her, and all the other kids with RAD out there.

It sounds like everytime you speak to her, she gets more upset.

She's very blessed to have you!

Patches is very scared when she is like this. It comes across as anger sometimes. She does scream more when I talk to her but I have found if I don't she gets very violent towards others, this way she stays focused on me. If I leave her alone she will harm herself b/c I don't love her.
