It's been about a year since I've been here. difficult child is driving me and everyone/thing crazy. He has to be pestering something at all times, or messing something up, breaking something, constantly talking/making noise, etc. He has to be constantly bugging me, CONSTANT COMPLAINING. Today I washed a month's worth of clothes that was tried on and disgarded in 7 DAYS. Once one room is cleaned and I moved to another room, then the first room is trashed. Yes, easy child is also doing this stuff but even his babysitter sees that difficult child flipps him out and he totally changes around him. I have been keeping them separate as much as I can, since easy child gets hurt or follows difficult child's bad behavior. I have been in tears all day, getting dizzy, feeling like I'm going to have a heart attack and this is starting to scare me. I can't take this much longer. This week was his medication check, and I told all of this to the psychiatric and he gave us concerta. Started it on Wed on this week. How long does this take affect? We did 1-18mg first and second day. Today and three more days are 2-18mg. Then 3-18mg. The psychiatric says this should stop this behavior, but I don't see anything. It even seems worse. He's also on Abilify 22.5 mg/day. FYI: difficult child is Pervasive Developmental Disorder (PDD)-not otherwise specified, Severe ADHD, Severe Sensory Integration Disorder (SID), Cognitive Disorder, Dyslexic, and an Apdaptive Functioning of 1.5 yrs old when he was 6 yrs old. He's 9 yrs old now.
