Well - Hello I've never been in any chat rms etc on line, so this is a first in many ways. Our daughter is 8 and we are at a lose. She was diagnosed approx 1 yr with-anxiety (general, seperation), Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and she is also extremely defiant, more so when it comes to any change to routine or moving from one thing to another. She just freezes up. Last year she missed 7wks of schl from panic attacks, etc. Counseling does help some, she looks forward to counseling (believe it or not) even though she barely talks. We keep a very strict routine at home, and give her notice for changes. Lately this just isn't working anymore - if she has it set in her mind one way - she will not budge. If we insist she loses it. Her outburst can last anywhere from minutes to 45 minutes. She hits, throws things, slams doors. Then she calms down and apologizes. She also can not or will not talk about her emotions. We've tried everything: praise, rewards, taking stuff away, ignoring the outburts, backing off the routine (makes matters worse). Nothing seems to be working. She is on Prozac, 1.5ml per day. Her doctor was going to start weaning her off this spring, but it's now looking like the medication's will need to be increased. Something we are hoping does not have to happen. ANY SUGGESTION!!
