just like most of you. it's a never ending cycle of problems. today husband walked difficult child to school for me, this is usually my job but i didn't have time to shower last night or this morning and husband was heading out anyway so he dropped him off on the way. So I run myself a bubble bath and hop in thinking i finally have some alone time. not two seconds later the phone rings. difficult child is throwing stuff and won't stop screaming/crying. Come get him please. uuggh...... so i hop out and dry off as fast as i can. i feel so icky cause i still didn't get to wash my hair and i have no makeup on. i run, literally run to the school to get him because i have no idea what he is doing and worried that he might be restrained(i have given permission for him to be restrained if necessary when he is attacking). he is wandering around his classroom doing his cry/scream and yelling "i want EA, I hate you EA, why won't you sit with me EA, don't get near me." the teacher and the two EA's have all the kids in one corner behind them. so i try to ask him what's wrong and he says pretty much that EA won't sit with him because he hates her.....uh, ok. so i say "Let's go home and we can have some quiet time. We can watch my little pony if you like." So, as typical he refuses to leave but doesn't want to stay. I had to carry him down the hallway. He kicked a different EA as we walked passed her, but in my opinion that was her own fault, she can see him screaming while i'm carrying him, she should move over and go around us. BUT i had to say "it's not okay to kick people, you need to watch what you're doing." so we get down to the office and i am trying to get his coat/boots on because it's minus temps here and i can't take him outside without them, especially when he is upset just incase he somehow 'escapes' me. (which would never happen but it's something i worry about) in the process of trying to get his stuff on him he boots both EA and VP. I asked EA to leave for reasons that should be obvious. VP does get him to get his stuff on but i see difficult child is only co-operating because he sees that VP and I now have back up from the other male teacher in the school as the secretary called them down. the whole time he is telling VP how much he hates him and he's gonna get back at him tomorrow. i had to carry him home. ugh. at least their 'emergency' plan worked and no kids got hurt. right? it seems like over the last couple weeks his behaviour is getting worse and worse. his medications are not working properly again and the psychiatrist has refered him to intensive behaviour management therapy instead. i know this doesn't work, i did it with my 12yo who does not have nearly as many problems and it was nothing but a waste of time and a pain in the butt. it seems like any progress we make is only temperary and no matter how much work we do it's just going to come back to the same old stuff anyways. it's really disheartening to see that he is no better off than he was before his medications increase now and it's only been two months.
