    Hi all .. just an update to say that difficult child is still taking her tofranil and I am constantly amazed at how big a difference a simple medication like an anti-depressant has made for all of us She is happy , compliant , friendly and hasn't tormented her easy child sister any more than a 'normal' kid since she started the medications. YIPPEEEE !!!
    I wish everyone else could have the same success as I have - our whole family has changed completely and the 'happiness' is just soooooo wonderful to see. The fact that Pete & I (my new b/f) are going strong and the kids adore him is another great bonus.
    So life here is wonderful and I pray that each & every one of you can see the same change in your own difficult child's soon.

    Best of luck !

    Glad to hear the good news!!! My difficult child is doing much better also with his medications. I haven't been around the board as much, as things are going smooth around here and I can actually do something without my difficult child throwing a big fit. Hope that everything continues to go well for you and yours.
    Dee, Please don't go sulk, your day to shall come. Youv'e earned a good break!!

    Happy Holidays!!!
