:It all sounds too familiar. Some days she's so "normal" and other days she can't handle anything. On her third birthday (she did have full blown lyme disease at the time) she couldn't tolerate the song Happy Birthday. She'd cover her eyes and run out of the room. She was too sick to have a birthday party but I was glad I didn't have to explain to everyone why we couldn't sing Happy Birthday. Right now she won't allow any music in the car or anything pertaining to Disney, except for Pooh. That certainly cancels the trip to Disney World when we go on vacation to Florida in November. I feel for her because if though we think it's irrational it very real to her.
Avoidance is the way to keep your sanity!

Hi Nancy,

: my son Alex is a bit like this with videos, and audio tapes. He does not get vioent as such, but covers his eyes, and runs out of the room. He will insist I keep the door shut. Some old 'favourites' he just can't tolerate at all now. It's like he can't bear the over-stimulation or something. I just go with it for the moment, and try avoid the stuff that he really opposes.
