I didn't want to jinx myself, but difficult child is doing quite well right now. The psychiatrist added buspar to her medications, and it has brought her anxiety level down alot. She has actually told people that she is excited to back to school!! I about passed out when I heard her say that. She has a boyfriend right now. We have only met him a couple times, but he seems nice, and she is quite happy about it. So, that is a good thing. School starts on the 25th. I am really nervous, but hopeful. She has been more like a typical teen with her whining and moaning. That I can handle. I can't remember the last time she raged. And, she has been giving hugs, and has shown some empathy. I am very very excited and hoping that it will continue. husband and I are a little worried about how difficult child will deal with easy child heading off to college. They have an odd relationship. They are not bff's, don't really go and do things together, but they would throw themselves in front of a bus for each other. They tease each other, torture each other, make jokes about each other, but no one else can even think about doing that without the wrath of the other sister coming down on them. So, continued pretzeling and rattling that difficult child continues to do well.
