My son is 33 months old or 2 1/2. He is DRIVING ME INSANE and has been for a long time now.
His constant whining is taking its toll on my mental health and my physical, as well. It IS that bad.
I can't now, nor could I ever go potty without him, go to another room without him without him standing at the gate whining, jumping up and down for...however long I'm busy. For instance, each meal is filled with tantrums. This shout-out for help is filled with the word, "Mommy" being said a million times while he jumps over and over and over again while hanging onto the gate that separates us.
I'm not going to lie...not many people come by and it's because of this type of constant behavior. I can't take it anymore. I've tried the ignore treatment, but he can do this for hours and hours and hours.
Is he possibly Autistic? I have considered this a possibility that he's on the spectrum! He would have to be low on the spectrum, but still, he could be. He does have some sensory issues with some sounds and such.
He has Severe Verbal Apraxia. He has Moderate Expressive Language Disorder. He was treated for both and I was told that now his language is where it should be for his age.
He has many, many food allergies, if this makes any difference to the reader, also. His gut system...has always seemed off-balance...Chronic diarrhea and such.
He has a condition called EoE. It has to do with food allergies.
About ten minutes has passed since I began writing this letter and he sounds like he may have a stroke or pass out. I have not made one sound back to him. I told him that I will be back in a few minutes. Now he just coughed and screamed, "MOMMY!"
Any advice? Has anyone ever experienced a toddler like this before?
He seems to have PTSD (Posttraumatic stress disorder) when I leave the room in his own house...but why? He's constantly with me. I'm a full-time mom - stay at home.
Alright, well I hope someone can help.
Thank you for listening!

He's 2 1/2 & he's fine. I think you have Munchhausen's Syndrome. Have YOU been checked?
