Things have been going very well with difficult child and I. We're not arguing anywhere NEAR what we were this time a week ago. That said, a new problem has come up. Yesterday morning, I barely saw difficult child as I was leaving the house (he said goodbye to me as he was coming down the stairs from a shower and I was on my way out the door to work). When husband went to give him his morning medications that same morning, he told him that I had already given them to him. This was obviously not the truth. husband has told me before that difficult child has tried to get out of taking medications (i.e. pushing them under the placemat or other things to make it look like he'd taken them). husband's cell phone was not charged so he had no way to contact me to verify, so he didn't give them to difficult child. difficult child then had a TERRIBLE day at school and was acting up really badly with his teachers (aka, no medications). difficult child has been doing VERY well in his new school (been there since october) and there has been some talk about moving him to a regular high school (special classes). I have very mixed feelings about this. He's been talking about some of his friends at school, makes me wonder if he doesn't want to take his medications so he will act up and avoid going to a new school (I'm not even sure if he knows) but that all seems rather calculating and a bit above something he would think of. I was proud of myself when I approached him about it this morning. Instead of arguing, I said "honey, I heard you told dad that I gave you your medications yesterday morning. Now you know that's not true. Remember how we talked about you acting like a young man? Do you think lying about your medications is something a young man would do? Do you want to risk having a seizure because you're not taking your Depakote, etc etc). He didn't really want to respond and I had to go to work. No idea how I should handle this... p.s. Before anyone asks, I usually give medications at night, husband does it in the morning because he sees him off to school.
