    Diet for a 3 year old, pure torture

    Due to medication, difficult child is gaining weight at an alarming rate. Her psychiatrist is adjusting her medications to try to help with the appetite issue while still helping her but she has gained almost 10lbs in under 2 months.

    For people using modern APs

    I learnt something very interesting today at my psychiatrist's. I've been on three different atypicals in the past few years and had to change medications and doseages to deal with side-effects several times. Well, I've been experiencing swallowing issues: as if my tongue and throat muscles were not able to...

    Hello everyone, It has been a few weeks since I last posted. Suffice it to say that it has been pretty much one constant crisis with my 17 yr old daughter. Her m.o. over the past few months has been to violate curfew, leave the house and refuse to answer her phone to tell me where she is, and...

    If it's not one it's the other

    Now that Daniel's medications were changed he has gone back to being my sweet Daniel 85% of the time. We did have an issue with his brother the other night but I don't know if it was Daniel's fly off anger that caused it or real anger at his brother. David has been horrid and Daniel's teasing him does...

They are talking about placing him in a one bedroom apartment which would have...
