Well, difficult child and I got into it again today. Seems as if both of us just blow our tops. Maybe more me. He sent me a message at work today saying he broke his Wii (game system) controller. He threw it against the wall because he was getting beat. This is a common behavior forever. He cannot control himself if he starts to lose. I had a psychiatrist appointment. and mentioned to him how I have been just losing control. It upsets me SO much when difficult child does things like this. He is acting like a pre-schooler, not an 8th grader. psychiatrist told me that I should speak to difficult child's psychiatrist regarding Depakote. Said that would help the impulsiveness. Anyone have success with that? difficult child is definately impulsive, in many other ways than stated above. Loses many friends over silly things like that. We looked into this before and husband didn't want to do it because of long term side effects. Ofcourse difficult child didn't want to do blood draws...he'd pass out. So, we didn't do it. Now, considering it again. husband still concerned with organ damage. difficult child still will not do blood draws. Lamictal definately helps his moods.
