My difficult child was doing so well on Abilify. She started two weeks ago and has changed her grades from D's-F's to A's and B's. She has been an angel at home. Last night she comes home from the movies with her Big Sister and she is a whole different person. Just looking mean and acting mean, yelled at me and the puppy and was just really, really hateful. She gets up this morning and oh my goodnes. I am back to being every name in the book and I do mean every name. It was like a bad dream. We just went to the therapist yesterday and she was really doing well. I am really stunned. The psychiatrist won't diagnose her with bi-polar. She says she doesn't want to put a label on her. After she is done calling me names and being hateful, she tells me she needs to go to the gas station to get gum. Just like nothing had happened. Then when the answer no came oh my goodness, you know the scene. Unbelievable. I truthfully don't have a clue as to what's going on. I am off from my second job this weekend and hoped to have a decent weekend. She is going to spend a lot of time in her room, I can see that coming right now. Could it be hormones? One of the therapist in the hospital, said she was definately bi-polar, he said she rapid cycles very often. Psychiatrist in the hospital, took her off all of her medications and said she had PTSD from a surgery she had when she was 3 months old. She was a wreck and was worse than when she went in. She had been there three weeks. He was totally nuts. Regular psychiatrist put her back on her regular medications that she was on before she went in. I guess I would say I had a week or so reprieve from the craziness of my difficult child. OMG, don't want to go thru this anymore. So, So, sick of it. My easy child doesn't live at home anymore, because of difficult child's ****. She lives with her best friend and her family. I saw her this morning. How I miss her. She leaves for college this summer. Sweetest girl you ever met. Seeing her everyday when she lived at home was my comfort. I knew that one was okay and doing well. I am glad she is away from the chaos, but also miss her so.
