My 3.5 yr. old
by: Mary

I wrote on this page just a few weeks back - regarding my daughter's problems with clothing and such - and am now at the point where we have been housebound for 4 days, as she cannot wear clothing at all right now - says it hurts. She really does seem to be agonized by it. She really wants to put clothing on (so she can go to B-day parties and such), but it looks to really hurt her when she even tries ANY clothing. SHe is obsessive about wiping her bottom (anal and vaginal area) completely dry. She DOES NOT like it to feel wet at all. She feels the same about her hands, and will get frantic when they feel wet or sticky at all (unless she's in the tub). So, we did not think it could really get worse, but last night she was tortured by the sheets and bedding she has, and it took her some working to get herself comfortable and to sleep.
We are trying to set up an evaluation for her - for sensory issues - and hope to have her going in some sort of OT asap. I hope to be able to share (soon) any progress she will make with OT.

might help some of your kids
by: Anonymous

I just wanted to post to tell give some info that might help your fmily and your children. I was cleaning out my "favorites" on my computer and was getting ready to delete this when I thought no, I should post. I was looking for answers about 6 weeks ago for my 2.5 yr old son who was having tamtrums all day long, obessing, and waking up 4 to 5 times a night screaming bloody murder, he also was "withholding" his stool - which was a horrible thing because it manages to come out anyways. So it was suggested to me to take him off of gluten for his behavior just see what happens in 2 weeks, well after 12 hrs we noticed a little difference, then 24 hours....wow. Seriously not the same children. Within 1 week, he was sleeping all night long, his temper tantrums went from all day long to normal 2 yr old 10 mintue ones. and he stooped with holding his stool and started going in the potty! he has been gluten free for about 6 weeks and it is thee best thing in the world. I can not beileve his has completely turned around.

At wits end with 2..5 year old daughter
by: Anonymous

My 2.5 year old is the youngest of 4. This is not my first rodeo. I have dealt with toddlers 3 times over, but I am about to crack under the desperation from my toddlers behavior.

Typical day includes her waking up into my room and screaming the highest shrill "banshee" scream for food, bathroom.
Instantly address the needs, but she changes her desire as to how she wants it served and proceeds to have huge meltdowns.

Everyday she obsesses about one item (a toy, a piece of clothing, a drinking cup) and she panics every few minutes as to where she has placed it. Almost a obsessive compulsive about it. She might decide it's washing her hands and will continually meltdown about washing her hands over and over. ALL DAY LONG.

Her scream I can only describe as ear piercing knife stabbing shrills. My family is cracking. Everyone is on egg shells.

She kicks and squeezes her fists and turns beat red with anger on a regular basis. If I was religious I would think she was possessed.

The past year has been very difficult and much change has happened with our family. Our business partner took our business, we moved 3 times, we have been finically strapped, and have been having a very hard year. I know all this change has been tough on her because she reacts so severally to any small change.

Also, my mother has been diagnosed with bipolar- so her grandmother suffers from this disease.

What should I do? How do I go about looking into a diagnosis? Please help me- before it gets worse.

3 year old
by: Mary

I Have written before regarding my daughter's irrational behaviors. She is now 3.5, and is still very controlling of any situation she is in. She does not like to get dressed - as most clothing seems to bother her - and she still has her moments on any given day when she will melt down like a wild animal (screaming and thrashing). I am happy to say that she does seem to do less melting down than she did even 4 months ago. Her ability to find things she can stand to wear has improved, but she still struggles with wearing underpants and sox daily - and the rest of her clothing has to be just so. Getting ready to go outside in the winter months is a definite challenge. I am pretty sure she does have some sensory issues (with her clothing), and am wondering if I should be aware of any other challenges (academic) that might sometimes be associated with these issues? She can sit for long books, but seems to be noticing everything else in the room when I am trying to do any sort of academic exercise with her.

2.5 Yr Old Sometimes Scary Level of Crying
by: Anonymous

I am experiencing the same thing w/my daughter around the same age...I think. Sometimes it seems to be "normal" toddler behavior but other times it just seems totally out of control, almost scary behavior, where she cries for so long and so hard, or clings desperately to parent while crying and she can't seem to snap back. Often I can pinpoint it to just a "transition" time when she does not want to stop doing one thing to move on to the next, but we don't know how to alleviate this anymore, and it is not always at a transition time. It can be more like walking on eggshells with her which makes me think she has some kind of mood disorder. Plus I learned recently her paternal grandfather is on lithium and has been hospitalized at least twice in his life for depression. I would also mention it seems she has completely abandoned progress w/potty training having absolutely no interest whereas even just a month ago she was all over it.
