My toddler is going to be the death of me!!
October 12, 2012 at 9:10 AM
He can't go a single day without getting hurt. Its not even 9am and he already bruised his cheek and has an egg on his head. I can't win with him. He has a sensory disorder where he seeks out impact or pain(though he doesn't respond to pain) He is constantly doing something risky just for the "ooff" factor. If he's not doing it on purpose its a consequence of whatever it is he's doing. Like the bruised cheek. Playing with cabnet door slipped hit the door lol egg on his head? Got mad and threw his toy in the air....it came back down. We can never have a period of time bruise free lol I swear he's gonna be the death of me. Just now he smacked his nose. Today just isn't his day.
Ok vent over.

    Your son and my daughter sound a lot alike!

    Wow! I'm going to bring this up at his next dr. Appointment.



    Everyone always comments on how "rough and tough" my son is. They think he's going to play football or do MMA or hockey because he's just so tough. As a mom, I worry! This kid knocked his tooth out at 1 and only cried when everyone jumped at him to make sure he was OK. The crying last a split second and then he was back up and at it like nothing happened.



    Does your son have hunger issues also? Mine won't stop eating unless I stop him. Literally all day he would just keep going. I always wondered if the two things were related.



    Sorry I'm asking so many questions. I know you aren't a doctor. I've just always wondered if I should have him checked out. I don't want to look like some crazy person thinking my son has this disorder.




    Quoting weirdkids:

    Yup. Its part of the disorder. Their brains don't process pain but process fear. Like shots. If they catch him off guard he doesn't even notice but if they hold him down he freaks. They respond to the fear and shock, not the pain. Its really weird. His Dr said to watch. Let boys be boys but if it swells and bruises almost instantly its time for an xray. (Bones)

    I have a question. When your son get's hurt does he ever cry? Like from the shock of it or out of fear? I suspect my son may have a disorder when it comes to pain. But he does cry when he get's hurt *sometimes*. It usually lasts a couple of seconds until I say "you're OK". Then, no matter what happened or what injury he has, he stops crying and carries on. There have been days where he get 3 or 4 eggs on his head and doesn't even flinch!

    exactly. i watched ds faceplant the floor and get a bloody nose and walk away like nothing happened. thats the part that drives me nuts. since he doesnt respond to pain he cant tell me if hes hurt or sick.

    Quoting ladyraven16:

    Totally agree. When my son fell out of that tree, he didn't start crying until he saw blood all over his shirt. Also, when he had strep and a double ear infection he never even told me. He loves to put his hands under really hot water, tries to touch candles etc and never cries. It's very scary because I never know how badly hurt he is. Like with his toe. He never cried or told me he got hurt, he was just limping around. I let it go for 2 days before I decided he was probably pretty hurt.

    My 3 yo is the exact same way. He hardly reacted when he broke his leg a little before he turned 2.
