spiral. While we were away this weekend difficult child continued to backslide big time. He had a few good moments but some very difficult ones as well. He was extremely verbally abusive and the physical violence has returned as well. I don't need to go into details but it wasn't good. I'm feeling so emotionally drained right now and so much like the glass is half empty and I'm usually very much the glass is half full type of person. Of course, in difficult child's eyes anything he did was deserved because someone made him angry. As usual he goes right back to being his happy self and doesn't understand how others could still be upset. I was really hoping that we had gotten past the violence. Good thing his psychiatrist appointment is this week-Wednesday, I think. As usual thanks for listening.
