threw a huge tantrum. We haven't seen one like this from in a long time. He decided he wasn't going to take his medicine. He knows very well that that won't fly in our house. I actually think some of it started building before when easy child was being so mean to him (still no excuse on his part). We gave him the medications to take at the beginning of dinner. Long after everyone was done eating he still hadn't taken them and just announced he wasn't going to. I told him that wasn't and option and not a good choice. Also told him if he didn't take it "now" he was going to lose his gimp (plastic suff you can make key chains and bracelets out of) for a week. Then he started swearing at me. Eventually he took a bowl and there were still some peppers in it and threw it on the floor -it ended up hitting husband. He continued to escalate and ended up throwing his glass (full of lemonade) on the floor and knocked over a bunch of chairs. He eventually calmed down and cleaned everything up along with spending the rest of the night upstairs. I told him he could not even call down once or I wouldn't consider giving him his gimp back at all. He actually did it. I can't even remember the last time he threw such a tantrum. At least he didn't get physical with me (he tried but husband was right there-that's when difficult child ended up throwing the bowl). husband and I were worn out after that. We just started decreasing his Loxapine by 5mgs a night which really isn't much-he was on 85 mgs and now is on 80 per night- but I really don't think that was it. His mood has been spiraling and it was almost like this was building up in him. I'll be glad when day camp starts again tomorrow.
