PAH

PAH

My son has PAH and has a very aggressive behavior. Is this normal?

A myPHteam Member said:

Maybe your son feels he's lost control. Everyone trying to do and help might make him feel helpless. My family was trying to help, but only making me upset because I felt I wasn't in control. They were pushing me to do this and that and I was'nt ready and it made me angry. We had to sit down and set boundaries. I'm having to learn to ask for help, and they now wait until I do. It's hard to let go.

There are definitely some anger issues involved. Diagnosed 2 1/2 years ago and on oxygen full time. I call the tubing my leash. From what we were once able to do to our current state of mind! Im hoping your son is getting some appropriate counseling. I have noticed that any anger I might have now is directly associated with my fatigue level.

I think anyone who has a incureable disease that renders them useless part of the time may have more aggression than others , i know i have had my moments and i am a great deal older than him
