I actually went out and purchased a Kindle so I can queue up all these books everyone here has suggested and read them without having to plan and execute a trip to Barnes & Noble or await shipping each and every time I was ready for a new one, but I digress... Has anyone found the Plan B to be a tremendous salvation to their relationship with their difficult child? I feel very overwhelmed by all the information in the book right now, but I read it at fever pitch as the hospital is talking about discharging difficult child on Wed. after our family meeting. I went to visit him tonite but he became upset with, and smoked, a nurse within five minutes of my arrival and then while back in 'open safety' he punched another nurse and had to go back to seclusion. Once he was calm enough to process out he wanted to watch a movie with me, I hesitated because I really wanted to talk to him since I hadn't been up there in days, but he really wanted me to see this movie so I caved. Well he ended up so absorbed in Scooby Doo that when it was time for me to leave, he didn't even look up when he said goodbye. I had anticipated my leaving to cause a meltdown as it has the past few times, so I was planning on working on Plan B with him prior to leaving, but not only did I not get the chance to do that, it wasn't even a trigger this time. I guess I will go back and re-read the book again. I feel like I need to have this one really concrete in my head before I move on to the others (like Lost At School). I just can't imagine getting the school on-board with this methodology at all... Bleh. I'll shut up now. I'm just feeling very downtrodden right now.
