Yelling

She’s yelling when she’s happy, when she’s sad, when she’s anxious, when she’s bored. Basically all the time. For the past month. And I thought teeth grinding was annoying. Ha!

One of her therapists thinks that it’s just another manifestation of her breathing issues. She’s not been hyperventilating or breath holding as much lately. (Yelling, teeth grinding and breath-holding are all unfortunately typical symptoms of Rett, among many others). I know of one Rett mama who got herself noise canceling headphones because her daughter wouldn’t stop screaming. I’m considering getting a pair.

It’s a good thing she’s so stinking cute!

  2. You are doing an incredible job, recommend noise cancelling earphones we had some when Ben was a baby for nappy changes as he yelled so much I thought cracks would appear in the house! Z x
