Well, difficult child and I, husband and I have been at each others throats for a long time. Everyday I tell myself I will not yell at difficult child. Everyday I do. I just blow up. Say things I shouldn't. So..Went to psychiatrist on Friday. He prescribed Zoloff and xanax. I take Ambien also quite often due to my work schedule. I also take fiorinal with-codiene for my headaches (as needed). I am really afraid this will all take me out. Xanax .5 mg (take 4 a day) Zoloff 50 mg (start with 1/2 for week, then one tablet) ambien 10 mb (take two at bedtime) I tried a xanax yesterday and fell asleep sitting up in the chair. I didn't ask doctor, but does xanax work immediately? Example of what difficult child and I fight about...HOMEWORK. He doesn't do work, and husband feels he shouldn't have to do too much at night, needs excercise and fresh air (like playing an online game does THAT). I asked difficult child to do some homework (prior to easy child taking him to a concert). He said "No. If I do one missing assignment, you will ask me to do another. So NO". easy child heard this and walked up and said, "come on buddy, start some homework while I shower". difficult child said "OK" WHY does he do this to ME???? Then I would of just laid into him, but easy child told me to take a walk.
