Anxiety

Today I experienced for the first time with Lidia a panic attack.  It was the weirdest thing.  One minute we are in our speech therapy session reading words on the board and the next minute Lidia is freaking out.  Breathing really fast, acting funny.  I wheeled her back to her room where we were able to calm her down.  Once she was calmed down, she was wiped out tired.  

Later that evening, I took Lidia on a stroll and it started happening again.  We got down the hall and she gets all excited/scared and asked to go back to the room.  I'm not sure what's going on with that, but we are going to talk to the doctors in the morning.  This isn't normal for her to have anxiety.

I sang her to sleep tonight.  It felt good.

Sang her to sleep--maybe She was faking it

Just to get me to stop.

Maybe the panic is accumaletions of all the frustrations of the things can't do but thinks she should be able too.

In my own experience it was people telling me all the things i cant do. I climbed the ladder and got on the roof anyway.
