psychiatrist appointment for both kids today. difficult child 2 just needs a medication refill. So far he is doing splendid on his Focalin. His teachers continue to report that he is focusing great in class, raises his hand to answer questions, and he is getting all A's except for 2 B's. No problems with him. difficult child 1 is going manic and not sleeping. She is my main reason for going. Geodon, which has been working wonders for her in the past few years, isn't having the same effect anymore. She is having a hard time sleeping, even with extra melatonin. Most nights she doesn't fall asleep till after midnight. Waking her up in the morning is hell. Sometimes I can't get her up at all. She's been staying home in the mornings and my mom has been picking her up later to take her to school late so she can at least make it to part of the day. She is way behind in first period math, which is her most difficult subject. She is also having some meltdowns that she wasn't having before. So we need either more Geodon or something else. Her not making it to school is really stressing me out. I am hoping this new medication change will help her sleep better and help with her atrocious attitude. She's even misbehaving for her dad, which she usually never does. So of to psychiatrist we go. Wish us luck.
