Post after post I read. My difficult child did this. My difficult child just did that. My difficult child can't control him/herself. Meltdowns, homework refusal, let's try some new medications, oh no there are some bad side effects, now we are being chastised by the school district. psychiatrists, Tdocs, neuropsychs, proper diagnosis's, improper diagnosis's. I sit here near tears. Seriously. I have never seen such a heavy concentration of pain and desperation in one place. I feel so bad for the moms and dads here who are aching for answers for their poor suffering children. I can't get to everybody, and I feel like a broken record. ~~~"Sorry for your pain, hugs and prayers your way."~~~ I pray to God that this is seasonal, and that our precious children settle down (at least a bit) very soon. This is not hopeless. This board is a Godsend. The members are so caring, and the power of the care on this board has worked miracles. Keep posting, everyone. We will all get through this, together. You are all in my prayers, every one of you, and all of your little (and not so little) ones.
