can sit in a crowed room at a party and guess what, she never runs out
of the room crying, because it was about pain, not attention."
my 34-year-old sister suffered from a head injury, I would get really
sad and sometimes angry when other professionals trying to help assumed
her behaviors after the accident were a sort of 'behavioral' thing.
She was an adult with an advanced degree!
she would run out of rooms such as a party or Thanksgiving dinner in tears
and in pain when the sounds were a certain way, but it was inconsistent
and difficult to predict what would hurt and what would not.
you my sister was not doing this for attention and had she been unable
to explain, and thus being treated by some patronizing or well-meaning
professionals as if she were doing it for attention was devastating. I
can't imagine how it would have compounded the emotional pain for her,
or how bitter it might have made her.
ended up helping her was Berard AIT
and also Neurofeedback. Now she can sit in a crowed room at a party and
guess what, she never runs out of the room crying, because it was about
pain, not attention."
