difficult child is home from the hospital tonight. His moods have been rather up and down. He and I had a terrific ride home. When he got home he became very upset because he couldn't find his wallet right away. He began screaming and demanding help and then yelling because husband (who wasn't home yet) must have lied to him about it. I tried to calm him down which didn't work so well but at least he wasn't threatening or physically aggressive. He seems fairly hyped up but in a somewhat better place than when he went into the hospital. We'll see how things go. All the doctors were very nice with us. One of the psychiatrists, who didn't even work with difficult child, introduced himself and told us he had heard we are doing great things for difficult child. He said he heard that things have been very difficult through the years and hopes things start to get better. Things with easy child/difficult child have not been great lately at all. If possible she has been more difficult child than difficult child and that is saying a lot considering difficult child has been hospitalized. She said some incredibly hurtful things to me the other night (she wished I would commit suicide and that God should have never made me a mother-oh and this is all because she refused or several days to do anything to help around the house)and we've barely spoken since. She even shoved me at one point and husband told her this was her one warning and next time he would call the police. So things have just been so cheery around here (can you hear the sarcasm). I'm supposed to go visit my sister tomorrow (after work)who I haven't seen in about 4 years. easy child/difficult child and I have been planning this mother/daughter trip for months. Right now I wish I was going by myself. It's either take her or difficult child because I honestly don't think husband could handle both this weekend either. Sorry I haven't been responding to more posts lately-just have been overwhelmed here.
