So after difficult child got home from Residential Treatment Center (RTC), he had a very rough time sleeping. I had to sleep on the bedroom floor and he could not sleep unless I was there. That lasted a week or more, and then gradually? It got better. About 3 weeks or so it started again. We saw psychiatrist, started on trazodone and he is up to 100mg and that helped for a while. Then? Back to the same thing. He is sure he has no nightmares if I am in the bedroom with him. His anxiety about sleep? Way up there. Called psychiatrist and started him on 15mg of buspar twice a day, and I am not sure if I am seeing any results from this. I called psychiatrist last week and told her we were still having sleep issues, did she have any ideas? She said no, not unless I wanted to go back to an ap. I do not, and she said good, neither did she. So I will call therapist tomorrow and see if she can do some work with him surrounding his anxiety around sleep. It probably does not help that s2bx is in jail again (for violating the ro against me, he wrote me a letter. I was not hurt, but feel I had to send him a message. He was pushing boundaries and I had to show him I am standing firm). Last night? difficult child asked me if I was going to send him back to Residential Treatment Center (RTC). I told him not unless he is hurting himself or someone else. He asked if it counted if he hurt people on accident as he had accidentally hurt a friend at school..........gotta love the black and white thinking..........I said no it would need to be in a mean way. I told him that sending him away was the hardest thing I have ever done and I don't ever want to do that again. However, I need sleep. The floor of his room? Is really not a good place to sleep. I usually don't get too sore, but I know I am not getting the quality sleep I need. Any ideas here? I can feel myself losing patience with both kids easeir as I am just exhausted.
