Well this will be short!!! Who me??? I need to be in bed. husband is yelling at me. I wanted to do a quick update, K will be done with her Lamictal, as of Saturday. We Difficult Child'd it very slowly... She is actually doing really well. Did I say great? NO. I must say, I am not patting myself on the back, but I think some of it is her growth, but I think all of the structure and mods we have put in place over the years. We try SO hard to be consistant and help her have an outlet. We try to give her the tools... to let her know she can't just freak out. That she needs to use her words... not violence. Give her options... We have centers set up all over the house for outlets. We watch her like hawks, for red flags, and then swoop in to help her, help her see that she is elevating. And then go do something else... it doesn't always work, but she is learning. AND she is TRYING so HARD!!! She is asking me if she can do things, like turn on the TV ... She told me the other night after a break down, that she was sorry, but she was just out of control, and lost it. She wanted to keep it together, but could not. She would try harder next time... We are taking more vitamins... fish pills, melatonin.... etc. I have no fantasy that she will remain medication free forever, but as long as she is non-violent and non-suicidal, and not hallucinating. We can handle this!!! It is better than what she was dealing with before... And when she has to take medications again. It will be one at a time, maybe only one... and a long time to see the results.... I know how it is. I have to take medications for the rest of my life, so I am by no means delusional about the reality of Bipolar Disorder. We are in the process of moving, it will take some time... we are not going to sell our home in Idaho yet.... We will rent it out. The market is too umm @#*$#&#*@@& right now... we would lose our @&$$&^#& if we did try to sell... So we will enjoy the summer, the girls will start school in the fall in Tucson!!! We have 2 psychiatrist apts in the next 2 months, in Tucson. When I called to cx with psychiatrist3. He never called back to talk, like I asked... nothing... So on to psychiatrist5... K is a wreck, don't get me wrong... but she is not cognitively dulled, she is not a medicated wreck... We will see... we have hope.
