So Thursday I went into difficult child's counselling session with him. He hates to have me there, but given all the sleep issues he has been having? It was needed. difficult child was off the wall goofy, very distractable, hyper, and just plain silly. I think some of what was said got through to him, but therapist had never seen him like that, and when we were done? She told difficult child I was a saint, and on the way out? Told me I had the patience of job. Job's patience is wearing thin. difficult child has been talking NON STOP all day. I finally put my earbuds on and am listening to music to try to block him out. He has not been misbehaving, he just does not stop talking ever. And every other sentence is Mom, Loook!!! oK, I am done looking at the same thing for the fifth time!!! He cannot stop moving or talking. I am hoping he is hypomanic or headed that way. It is hard to tell. His dad just got out of jail, so that is a change that has to affect him, and I think his dad was giving him a hard time about going out with his mentor today, dad is jelous as he wants to take difficult child to go to fun stuff but due to s2bx's stupid choices, he has no license and cannot. I am not sure what other **** s2bx brings up, but I am sure there is more. There is also the fact that I am feeling more and more irritable, the more difficult child talks, the more irritable I get. Usually I get an hour or two of quiet time in the morning, and this morning? He woke up at the same time as I did. He has been in my ear ever since. I did get 3hrs of quiet when he was gone with his mentor, and man was that nice. I sure hope it is just life stuff that is making him anxious. We started him on 15mg of buspar twice a day about 2 weeks ago, and somehow I did not get it put in the pill box for the last 3 or so days. I caught it last night and restarted it. I hope this is the problem. He is still not on an ap, and I would really like to keep it that way if we could, but I do realize we may not be able to. If he does not calm down and mellow some with the buspar? I am considering asking to try an SSRI, and yes, I do know what I am asking for. It could be disaster, or it could be the answer, or maybe there is not a medication that is the answer, maybe the answer is inside of difficult child. I dont' know. I just want him to be quiet for 15minutes.
