It's not pretty. Ex is of the mindset that the cure is worse than the disease.. or something like that. Blaming the very issues that precipiated medications ON the medications now. Manster decided not to take the night time ones because he wanted to stay up later (clonidine) and then forgot the morning ones (Ritalin, Clonidine and Zoloft) and of course no one reminded him. He was hyper and full of negative energy and breaking down crying at the smallest of triggers. I said that's because you didn't take your medications and he said "no mom, I feel this way every day but I just hold it in".. well keep holding it in I'm thinking lol. I told ex that I would give him the number to the doctor and he can discuss his concerns with him directly. The decision to take on medications was not an easy one and not one that was taken lightly but it is the one husband and I made on the advice of doctors. Sure, ex is part of the picture but you have to understand here is someone who doesn't believe in medications but self medicates with alcohol and gambling on a regular basis and isn't always of sound mind. He's fairly willing to leave parenting to husband and I and stay the Disneyland dad which we've accepted. Not sure where I'm going with this.. just venting I guess. Thanks for reading.
