how the medications' work for a while and than suddenly stop working, than we're faced with the umm should I up it again or just switch medications and in come the pyschdoc's etc. Funny in a not ha ha sort of way that is So, we're at that point now and i'm not willing to increase it. we've gone from size 10 to 16 in three mos and i'm not willing to go any higher, along with high blood sugar as well. So, here I am difficult child's a bit hyper tonite shall we say, it's been increasingly getting worse sleep wise i've been monitoring it. so tonight she's full blown jumping spinning twirling etc. comingin and out of the room saying i want to eat, i want to draw i dont' want to sleep i'm not tired let me out. when i first became a member here I thought difficult child could be fixed there was a magic answer. i kept singing that tune for a while until other very wise ppl here said umm no, there is no magical soluttion. Way i see it now we just evolve in it and within it each mos and each year hopefully getting a better handle on the triggers, the things to avoid the schedule's and routine they sooo desire, etc. so, now i have a new therapist on board we're doubling down on visits, i'm looking into socialization classes through my job for difficult child as well as that equesterian therapy thing tryinig to get a grant for that it's too expensive here, and we're going off seroquel. not sure when we'll start going down on it, soon im betting once new therapist gets her feet wet and hopefully devises a plan with me. pyschiatrist i'm sure will be gone once he realizes i'm going down on the seroquel. risky move i know, yet we shall see how it all winds up. seroquel was great for a few mos it really was. it enabled difficult child to make one friend, it enabled her anxiety to lower somewhat and her to be somewhat managable yet due to the weight gain which has been fairly severe and the blood sugar's way too high it's time to say good bye to it. i realy hate that when you find a medication that works, than suddenly the warnings come out which by the way even ppl at work are talking about and the medication did infact work for a brief time. oh well, this should be interesting if nothing else. we'll see if pyschdoc has another medication he's offering or if we're going to see how it goes with-o.
