I missed difficult child's therapist appointment today. That's really bad- it's the second I missed him getting him to and he's only been seeing this therapist a month. It's bad. I was on the phone all morning with people about difficult child and I totally forgot about it- we hung around here a little while and ate luch then went to the pharmacy, ran a couple of other errands, I went to the office (took difficult child with me) then grocery shopping. When I came home, there was a message from therapist. difficult child is just full of disrespect tonight. Not as bad as it could be- no violence as of yet but he's on the verge of raging- he's trying to intimadate me. I can't tell you how well that sits with me. Now he's walking around with a knife that he apparently had hidden- out the front door- back to his bedroom....oh boy...makes me wish I had re-thought things yesterday. I went back to Terry's thread and read all of that article. That family was evidently on medicaid before things got to that point- they would have to be to get that amount of help in this state without being rich or knowing someone inside the system. They think they are scr**ed- they have no idea how little help they'd be getting without the medicaid. I am jumping through hoops just to get a chance to sit down with the team that they are complaining about. I'm sure I'd complain about it, too. But, right now, I don't even have that much. Now- he's getting into the shower- thank goodness- I tried to get him to do that over an hour ago while I was getting dinner ready- he hasn't even eaten yet. Really, if I was raising a easy child- he wouldn't be getting dinner at this point-I would be telling him that he missed his chance.
