difficult child has a new psychiatrist. She has increased his Abilify and added Lamictal and Visteril. The last few months have been hell. For the first time in a very long time, I had him transported to the hospital because he was destroying the house. There are holes in almost every wall and door. For saying " no" to something. We were at the hospital for seven hours when they informed me that they could not guarantee we would see someone within two hours and that when we did, the doctor would not be standing in front of us...he'd be on a TV Monitor!! Telepsych. Unbelievable. We left. The new psychiatrist has sent a referral to an Epilepsy Center for us to get a complete neuropsychologist evaluation, which is something I've wanted for so long. The ODD is so out of control. Even though I've lived with this for ten years, it's still so hard to comprehend and live with. I am praying that the evaluation and/or a visit to a neurologist will shed some new light on all of this. Meanwhile, tomorrow is my trip(with difficult child) to a Juvenile Court Counselor to address difficult child "truancy". I'm not too worried due to the amount of time I have tried to get homebound services and a bunch of copies of letters that I have written. Also working with an advocate to see if we have a case against school system for so many different things. I am emotionally drained. My hat is so off to any of you who manage to work a job outside of dealing with your difficult child. I couldn't do it.
