tough day

Agitation and ire today for reasons unknown from the Bede. He is ‘stuck’ today, and very inflexible. He yells at us, and contradicts what we say. I wonder, is he in pain? I don’t think so. He tells us when he hurts. But maybe that is it.

Yesterday was tricky too. He was contrary at Mass, but not as much as today. We have a rule – no food anywhere but the kitchen or dining room. This is not a new rule, and has in fact existed for Bede’s entire life. But today he is very angry about it. I had to put away his favorite box of crackers, his reaction to which you see here.

His interpersonal skills are completely unpolished. He has very functional communication abilities, but conveying a bad mood really just results in lots of yelling of NO! YOU BE QUIET! and AAAAAAUGH!
