difficult child 2 went back to school today after having missed all last week due to the flu. He really only had energy to work on some of his assignments yesterday. Well, tonight he crashed at 5:30pm after only being home about an hour. This is sort of the pattern he was going into in the weeks leading up to the flu. He'd get really tired around 5:30-ish, sleep for a 90 minutes to 2 hours, then I'd get him up and he'd finish his homework. I figured part of it was the fact that we'd bumped up his afternoon Seroquel XR dose and reduced the nighttime dose. Maybe it's just too much. But he was getting so wound up in the afternoons -- some days he'd come home and I could tell just by the look on his face. And he would admit on those days to feeling like his head was "buzzing" a little bit. I'm sure part of the fatigue tonight is due to him still recuperating. I couldn't get him to get out of bed even after close to three hours. I'm going to try again in a few minutes. If this pattern continues this week, I'm going to ask the psychiatrist about cutting back the afternoon dose again. It's such a balancing act still. I will be SO happy when we finally figure this all out!
