Haedes(sp?)What a day-I am so ready to hide under my covers and not come back out until difficult child is sound asleep! His attitude this entire day has been horrible! It started this morning when we went to get his c-pap machine. He was disrespectful to husband, the therapist, and mostly to me. It was so embarrassing. He was calling me names, yelling at me, telling us and the lady he wouldn't use the machine (we have discussed with him his reluctance and been very patient and although we realize there may be some anxiety the way he handled this was not o.k.). He even tried to make me cry-didn't work though I was too angry! On the way home he complained, called names, and threatened (nothing to do with the cpap machine). All day long has been one insult after another. The consequences that usually work today did nothing. He also went after his sister at one point and held a butter knife to my chest (I know he was only in a threatening mode but this still is not o.k.) He has threatened to punch me several times today but stopped short of actually doing it although he did shove me once and is at STW for it. He is so wound up. It isn't like him to be threatening and rude in front of other people but today it made no difference at all. Also on Saturday when we went to Michigan's scrimmage he was the same way even with an adult friend of ours along (it was his god father who he loves and who he always tries to behave around but not that day) easy child has also been a pain today but mostly typical teen stuff. husband and I are worn out, we have no energy left and my head is literally throbbing. I have a huge migraine coming on and I've already taken 800 mgs of Ibprofen. Poor husband is still dealing with him but I have no energy left to deal with things tonight. Please cross fingers that he falls asleep soon and doesn't fight the cpap too much. He got a new boom box stereo for Easter so he should be able to sleep with his music on which should make him happier. Sorry for the long whine-I have just had it with difficult child today.
