I am so struggling...the last 4 days have been really bad. I am hesitant to head off the the MD for medication change but I am getting overwhelmed. If I think this phase will end after another week or so ...I think that will give me some grace to get through this. I probably give him one more week to see if he will settle back down. Blue, my difficult child ds, is just off his routine to the point he is acting sort of "manic" - he is hungry all day, tantrums over the smallest things, jumping and flapping all day long, and doing some of his old "open the door and run" behaviors. Ending the school year set him off last year as well.....due to his years in Foster Care he is very sensitive to any transition that involves loss of people and structure in his life. With this in mind ...I am trying so hard to be patient but **** I am only human, right? So I am in hypervigilant mode as I am sure you guys can relate all too well. I am barely sleeping, we have the deadbolts locked and the pantry locked, our difficult child daughter Indigo is "visiting her granny" for the week..... So anybody have any tips to get me through this rough patch?
