Ok....after the stress of difficult child not wanting to go to school last night....we found out he had terrible headaches.....he woke up still with a headache!!!! But was willing to go to school, even while crying in car of bad headache! So school nurse phoned me to say I must come and fetch him, he has bad headache...gave him Ponstan. When I got to school, I could see he is in bad shape....sunken eyes and feeling nausea.... This morning I stupidly shared with his class teacher about his meltdowns at home and that we are really struggling as a family....thought she would understand! She suggested we get a second opinion! So teacher asked me to come and fetch more homework after school......And what would she 'wisely' inform me???? I must really be alert that difficult child doesnt try to manipulate me at home, because in class he is the perfect child with full marks!!!!!AAGGHHHH!!!! She doesnt get it! I tried to explain to her that he uses up all his tolerence at school and then let it all out at home!!!! Surely...what will he gane from manipulating us at home!!!!???? What child will delibirately try and ruen his relationships at home, and choose to feel so bad afterwards!!!!???? I phoned the psychiatrist this afternoon and in her opinion he is feeling very bad because of the increase in SSRI.....so we are tapering it to lower the levels in his blood and then will add Abilify....... I am going to let teacher know its the medications that caused the illness, NOT manipulation!!!!Agh, why do they always think its the parents fault!!!!????
