Meltdowns

Mar 31, 2019 5:28 PM

I’m 15 almost 16 and I still have meltdowns like a 2 yr old it’s really embarrassing and people tell me to grow up or get over myself but I can’t get a grip. I have them when a lot of noises and movements are happening I get super stressed out then completely break down. Dose anyone else experience this?

When I have sensory overload, I get super irritable & have lashed out at my husband and adult kids. I have finally taught myself to just let everyone know I NEED some quiet time by myself. I go in my room and they've learned also to leave me be. When I've the quiet time for a time, I am much better. Maybe you could try this.
It took me a while to learn how to do this instead of going off on whoever is near me.

Yes it sucks to add the guilt of upsetting our loved ones to all the other emotions we have! Makes you much more stressed!
I would also advise you (before an episode) to explain to your family that when you say you need, not want, quiet time to leave you alone! I'm sure they'd rather y'all come to that understanding than to get into arguments or hurt someone's feelings etc.
I know it's hard on you but keep trying!

Talia14, I think we all have meltdowns at some point, even us older adults (57). And the more we have to deal with the worse mine can be. Pickle99's suggestions are spot on! I get off to myself. I'm thinking that yours may partially be sure to the new hormones your body is trying to get use to also. From puberty until about 20 hormone levels aren't necessarily the same stable levels each month, and it can cause an emotional rollercoaster ride. My daughter was complaining about my (just turned) 13 yo grandchild's "meltdowns", and I reminded her that she and her sister were the same way. More stress causes me to have more meltdowns. And not taking care of my own needs adds more stress. With time and practice (finding ways you can best cope) you will have less meltdowns. When you need to vent, come here because this is our safe place for noon judgement and great support. Hugs love and prayers today is a good day for you! 🙂❤🙏🌼

Yep totally. Anxiety is a horrible feeling. I get that way when I hear loud slams & noises. Also in the car with all the idiots drivers around here. It definately aggrevates my pain. What do you currently do for relief? I use binaural beats,I so chronic tones & alpha/beta waves in specially formulated music made my psychologists ,sleep docs & musicians. Its amazing stuff.
