Hi all. I know it has been a while. We have been crazy over here between Sammy and his issues and husband and his MS. Sammy just had his neurologist appointment. He had been on Zoloft for about 4 weeks and we hadnt seen any change and on top of that the insomnia wasnt letting up. The Dr decided to stop the Zoloft and give it a few days to make sure the insomnia is in fact from the zoloft and not something new to add to his list. Indeed the insomnia is from the zoloft so thankful there! Sammy will be starting Ritalin this weekend. As Sammy's seizure medications have really begun to work it seems that more Pervasive Developmental Disorder (PDD) symptoms come out. Sammy has impulse control issues especially with me for some reason. We are trying the Ritalin to see if that helps. He said that study's have been done and show that ritalin helps with brain growth in the areas that Sammy has issues. We are hoping that works. He will be on a small dose for now and only in the morning and we will go from there. In the meantime, I am tired from the constant array of battles from Sammy. ANything from sit down to bolting into the street. The day is a constant day of no listening. I know that he does have the impulse control issue and that he has a thought and instant reaction. I am running low on energy and patience at this point. Thankfully, Sammy will be going to regular school in the summer 5 days a week which is right near the house rather than the treck downtown. His therapist will come to the house which again makes life easier. Maybe once that starts and I am not running around all day like a chicken with my head cut off, I might be a bit more relaxed and less exhausted!
