Overheard: It Just Infects Me

Mom: Grace, what are we going to do about these fits?

Grace: *Thoughtful pause.* I don’t know. We can’t stop them. I just get so sad when someone yells at me. 

Mom: But no one yelled at you, Grace. You were mad that your tablet was out of batteries. 

Grace: Ya, I just get so sad. It infects me. And I can’t stop it. 

Mom: But maybe we could try to think of another way.

Grace: It just infects me. 

Mom: Maybe you could find your teddy and hold on to him until the feeling passes?

Grace: I try that all the time. But it just gets stronger and stronger. I’ve tried that millions of times. It just infects me.
