My youngest son is regressing. There are some changes in his life, changes that will soon change back. His EMDR therapy has never been started, because he is still getting to know his therapist. Once the trust is established..
Though he is regressing, I have noticed it is not a complete regression. He is pulling his punches. He is stressed out, overreacting. He is pulling my hair to calm himself down. He has not done that for over a year.
He is starting to have some delusions. He believes he has ESP, possesses super strength. I never minded him thinking he had monkey powers, but today has been an awful day for him, he goes between raging fits and kissing me repeatedly, then these statements of his supernatural abilities. It’s as if his emotional self were an overloaded circuit board.
It hurts. It hurts more than my special needs child, trying to hold a scissors. It hurts more than watching my daughter screaming at the sound of a man’s voice. It hurts more than anything.
