Just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Sue (surprise, lol). I have 9 year old b/g twins. My daughter was diagnosed at UCSF about 3 years ago as Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), borderline ADD. She's been in some behavioral therapy since then but I don't see much improvement (and in fact, I think she's getting worse). My husband is "anti-medications" (God knows why...long story) so we're disagreeing about that with regards to our daughter. I think she's going to need medications to get to a place where the therapy will help. My husband thinks we haven't done enough to help her outside of medications. Talking with her therapist about it, she semi-sided with my husband. She said "well, your daughter can still attend school and such...". For chrissake, if we get to the point where she can't we've waited too long in my opinion! So that's a battle. I love the forum's saying "a soft place to land for the battle weary parent". That's exactly how I feel. My daughter can twist me up in knots soooooo fast. I'm hoping to learn how to deal with my feelings here so I don't end up losing my cool with her and making things worse...Know what I mean?? I hate my anger...I want to be a calmer but more effective mom to her (and my son). That's it. Sorry for the ramble!
