Sometimes – Weds 22nd April 2015

By | April 22, 2015

Sometimes …. we have a week where D is absolutely consumed by worries, each day brings a new one and they stack up and up (metaphorically).

This week, so far, has been one of those weeks.

The worries have been varied, from a trigger that reminds her how much something has hurt, to an unknown forthcoming event.

It’s all adding up for D.

Today’s concerned the fact that she’s been invited to attend a Football Fun Day with school.  Whilst we’ve been emphasising the “fun day” aspect, all D can see is the word “football”.  She participated in a girls football tournament earlier in the year and enjoyed it, but (I think) it all brings back memories of playing football in after school club and her fingers being hurt by the ball when she went into goal.  Plus it’s a contact sport and there were some much older pupils participating.

So, until tomorrow, when I collect her from after-school sports and try and found out a bit more about this “fun day”, we’re none the wiser.  What I do know is that it’s happening the day after her next injection, which we are definitely, absolutely not mentioning at the moment.  She has enough to worry about already.

We have to walk past the mainstream primary school where she went to nursery, reception and one term of year one (when she received her statement and transferred to SN school) and there’s always children running, laughing, shouting to each other, just being children.  Sometimes it makes me feel a bit sad that neither T or D are able to let go of their worries and anxieties.  Of course we do have “running around a field with a kite” time and trampoline fun but it’s always limited, tending to get a bit competitive and inevitably one will upset the other.  That’s life for us, I guess we grab the laughter however fleeting whilst we can.
