Well the meltdowns and defiance have returned since we started the Focalin again about three weeks ago. I am so discouraged. After three months of peace and tranquility in my home when difficult child was taking lithium alone we are back to the screaming, meltdowns, blaming everyone for his behavior, etc. He is focusing better at school. His teacher says that his behavior is better at school. His father says that he is doing okay at his house. Ugh. So, has the hell returned to my home first and will generalize to his dad's and school soon? Or is it just me and my home? He starts about ten seconds after getting into the vehicle after I pick him up. His dad was smart and came back out of the house last week right after difficult child got in the car. he caught difficult child in the act of starting at meltdown. It was really good for him to see it for himself. He told difficult child to knock if off and that worked temporarily. I think mostly because difficult child was caught off guard. His next psychiatrist appointment is Nov 9th. That will give us another ten days of information. Was the three months of peace and tranquility just a dream? figment of my imagination? Not fair to tease me with what could be only to return back to this hell.
