psychiatrist has been wanting to decrease kt's tegretol & seroquel to the lowest dose possible; mainly to avoid or stave off this budding eating disorder of hers (again, if possible) - mostly because he's a big believer on the lowest dose & fewest medications possible. In the meantime, Integrated Listening Systems (ILS) therapist has been working with kt on healthy eating choices, learning portion control & waiting 30 minutes after eating before heading to the bathroom. Additionally, they have been working on a non extreme exercise program. Having said that - we're doing our best to work this in everyday conversation & as part of the family lifestyle. I reminded kt at lunch to wait 15 minutes before deciding on another half sandwich to see if she was still very hungry. While we were hanging around I told her that psychiatrist would like to decrease her medications to help her with some of her weight concerns. However........kt had to prove to me, to psychiatrist, to therapist's that her mood swings were under control. I let kt know that it isn't all the medications; now it's up to her. I also reiterated that she would probably be on medications all her life but that she had to take back control of what parts of herself, her body that she can. Good, bad or indifferent I cannot take back this conversation.
