I just need to vent! Got my difficult child into a Neuropsychologist they want to do more testing, my ex husband needs to give consent for testing does he NO! One way he can control the situation, he hasn't talked to difficult child in almost a year so it is obvious he doesn't give a .... about what is going on with her. Not to mention he doesn't think there is anything wrong with her that she is just lazy and mean! I guess if he admits there is something wrong with her then he would have to admit she gets it from him and he has serious issues! The more I look into her school work the more I think she had ADD, she is 15 and can't remember to turn in COMPLETED class work! What is that? You do the work you don't turn it in? I want to understand, I want to be supportive but wow is it hard today, what to do now? Other than sticking my head under some pillows and crying my eyes out or screaming as loud as I can I feel lost, sad, disappointed and defeated. Ok after I type this my pity party will end (maybe) and I will have to come up with a plan. Plan A - ask psychiatrist to try difficult child on Strattera (what the neurodc suggested) without any further tests. Something has to give with school. Plan B - go to a different Neuropsychologist and ask for the tests and tell them I have custody! Plan C - go to my lawyer and see what I need to do to get full custody so I don't have to deal with this again! Not to mention get a HUGE child support increase why not get him where it hurts him the most! Only problem with Plan C is the effect it will have on difficult child that is my biggest concern. It was the court process to change visitation that cause a lot of problems for her last year! AWWWWWWW I know I don't have it that bad I know that but boy it feels bad right now! I think the time has come for me to find my own therapist, while I am hunting I hope you all don't mind me venting! Thanks for letting me get it out, now what to do? Any suggestions?
