    difficult child has finally admitted that a medication has worked.


    Trazadone - for sleep. The first time she took it, she had slept for several hours after school and was only up for a couple of hours. I told her it might not work because of all the sleep she'd had. And it didn't. And she wouldn't take it again because it's not coated and left a bad taste in her mouth for "2 hours" (probably an exaggeration) after.

    We got some soy pudding tonight and she took it with that. 20 minutes later she comes to me and says, "Well, medication works. I'm going to bed."


    She's always had the "nothing works for me" attitude. As in the "nothing ever works for me so I don't want to take anything" attitude. She's had a lot of struggle with insomnia. I'm so relieved.

    That she admitted it? Out loud? HUGE.'s hoping for the same with Zoloft.

    Great news! Insomnia is awful, can really create problems (said at 3:20 am).

    Good luck with the zoloft.

    Oh, that's wonderful news. I hope it leads to a more open mind about more things for her!

    I know that combo is a godsend for me. Hope it is the same for her, especially with the anxiety. Still get anxious, but not nearly as bad.
