The Weekend

Skin on top of Sebastian hands in places where he bites himseltf is thick. He is mellowing down lately, and his selfinjurous and aggressive behaviors has become shorter, less intense and less frequent. Although it is very rare, sometimes entire day can go without a tantrum.

Coming home on Friday afternoon I caught myself thinking that I am looking forward to a quiet weekend at home. But the weekend was difficult. Sebastian screamed, I did not know why. My sluggish mind tried to come with some kind of explanation; allergy, stomach ache... all in vain. I gave him some medication, I talk to him, I ignored his behaviours, I was helpless. It took hours. It is very stressful. And although I am a veteran by now, and it used to be much worse than it is, i can not get used to it, and it hits me hard.
