After third day on Abilify, difficult child talked to me last night about fixing up her room. She has hoarding issues and it is a disaster. Her idea was to put everything into bins to empty the room and then paint it and then go thru each bin and only put back in what she needs/wants and has a place for. She agreed that she had outgrown some stuff (like boxes of dress up clothes) and that it was time for them to go! What child is this? So I figured I would work on that over a week (packing everything up). Then she wakes us this am to find out that one of her pet hermit crabs has escaped and she can not find it. She is upset but agrees to go to camp when I say I will take the day off and pack up her room and hopefully find the crab in the process. What a long day. I am about 1/2 done. No crab yet. Except for clear garbage (food wrappers etc) I am not throwing stuff out. I am organizing a bit as I pack the bins. One has two years of every paper that has come home from school... I am so hoping that she will be able to follow thru and get rid of stuff when we go thru the bins. Getting it all out of her room is a major step forward and I hope that will motivate her to keep it functional. I can not wait to get the carpet cleaned!!! I have not been able to in years and there are both pet and human stains that really need cleaning. Could this be the medications kicking in?
