Sigh... Alana

Let's see where to begin.

Alana went to school this morning as usual.

I get a call about 10am that she is screaming and very agitated and this isn't her normal behavior. They said she was signing and saying sorry but still screaming at the top of her lungs and crying. She was saying something else but they couldn't understand what she was saying.

I go to get her and she had calmed down for the most part. The main teacher and Alana were in the quiet room, where they had been for about 30minutes. But as soon as Alana saw me she says "ready go bye bye". I can't go to observe the class etc ever because she wants to leave home with me, she can be lazy at home, no work.

Hmmm...

They said they were pretty freaked out by it because she would scream and cry then shake and then stop and stare off and then do it all over again. They said it even seemed like the shaking might be seizing. Please lord do not give me more crap to deal with I have plenty. But the shaking doesn't alarm me (I didnt see this current shaking) because if she is very upset she will shake her body all in unison. Then another para ed/assistant came out of the class next to them which I guess witnessed most of it asked me if Alana had a history of asthma? No, she's never had any breathing problems. She says she was wheezing and breathing really hard like she was hyperventilating. This leads me to believe she was having a severe panic/anxiety attack for whatever reason we do not know.

Lets just pray it doesn't happen again.

I hope this was a one time thing. Neither you or she needs anymore to deal with.

I'm really sorry that happened. It really does sound like an anxiety attack, from what you said. Poor thing, those are no fun. I hope it was a one time occurrence.
