As you may remember--we have been taking difficult child for "testing"... The doctor said a couple of weeks ago that it looks like an "attachment disorder". I sent an email to the doctor about some of our frustrations with difficult child earning reward despit doing NOTHING and earning good grades despite not doing the required work. I also let the doctor know that I could see the medications were helping because difficult child did not have a meltdown over the weekend over an incident that in the past would have set her off. BUT however I phrased it, I have offended the doctor--who promptly offered to discontinue "therapy" since I seemed to think it was not working. So I sent a new email apologizng and thanking her and begging her forgiveness for not being patient enough with the therapy. ???????????? I just want to run away. Life in my house goes on as before--locks, keys, sneaking, lying. I'm always on guard, I can never relax....I hate living like this. But now I have been scolded for not recognizing all the "improvement" that therapy has made. doctor pointed out that difficult child is all smiles during session and that difficult child often talks about how well things are going. Yes--obviously the problem is me and my negatve attitude. We still don't have a diagnosis from this doctor. I didn't even realize she was doing therapy--I was under the impression that she was "testing"... I feel really stupid. I just want to cry. I don't know what to do any more... Thanks for listening.
