Wow. difficult child is so off the wall lately in the morning before his patch kicks in. It is crazy. I am also wondering if he is a little hypomanic, as he has been irritable at times and Thursday he was up at who knows when. I was up at 5am, and he was up playing with legos(at least he was quiet untill I got up) and this morning got up about 5:30am. Now he is usually up at 6:30am, I usually wake him. He does better when he has a schedule and that way I can put his patch on so it will be working by 9am or so (Seems to take a very long time to kick in) when he is either in school or everyone else is awake as he drives everyone batty when he is like this. Once the Daytrana kicks in he is better, and psychiatrist has offered orals to get us thru to when the Daytrana works, and I have always declined. I may take him up on that when we see him next, but we do not see him untill March. So far he has yelled at the dog for eating a brownie that he left in the room with the dog alone (DUH) I was in the shower, of course. Has called me g girl more times than I can count. Can anyone tell me what that means? He won't tell me, and I think he really does not know but I told him enough, if he called me that again he would lose ps2 priveleges. I can't wait to go to work!!!!!
