Good Sunday morning all, I want to thank everyone for your encouragement and support during difficult child's disastrous stay at home over these past few weeks. I've felt like the cartoon cat clinging to the ceiling for dear life. I have updated my signature with difficult child's new slew of diagnoses. We are still going to have her further evaluated because her issues are so spread out and pervasive. The psychiatrist, based on the assessments conducted to date, does not believe that difficult child meets the criteria for Bipolar, Disruptive Mood Dysregulation Disorder, Reactive Attachment Disorder (RAD), or CD. We have started the ball rolling for getting guardianship of her after she turns 18 - as of now, my mother in law is planning to be her guardian. Right now difficult child is attending a wilderness therapy program - husband took her there this last Friday. We chose this route to give us time without her in our hair in order to carefully choose her next placement (which we want to be long-term) and also give her the message that her recent behaviors have been completely unacceptable. I am making a point to be kind and gentle with myself as I come down from the intense stress of having difficult child here and all the BS that she managed to squeeze into the short time she was here. These past 2 nights I've had the most bizarre dreams, and even though I don't remember them, somehow in my sleep I recognized that it is my system decompressing. I'm off to take a long shower and get ready to go have a few mimosas at Sunday brunch!
