So... things have been touch and go here since my husband and I got back from vacation 2 weeks ago (Trex stayed with her big sis and had a ball). She has kept it together for the most part with some really good days but a few BAD rages along the way. She got a really bad scratch from the cat yesterday that is now red and swollen so we were taking her to the Dr this morning to see if she needed antibiotics. She got upset at the house becuase she was going to miss the first hour of VBS (she knew we had the appointment yesterday so no surprise). Was hitting and refusing to get dressed, etc. Finally got herself together enough to get in car. She started hitting, pinching, grabbing my husband's glasses going down the road.... bad scene. I had left when they did to go to work. We are planning to leave on Friday to drive to Ohio to see some of my husband's family and then go by Dinosaur World in KY which she loves and has been looking forward to for months. Also planning to take our time and swim at the hotels along the way. Since she seems to be in one of those "cycles", we are so afraid that this will happen on the trip... it will be kinda stressful. Plus on one hand, we are tempted to say she isn't going and she and I stay behind due to her behavior in the car this morning. I am torn... would this get through to her about how serious the car "rage" was and that being violent toward us in a vehicle is not going to be tolerated (yes I know... shouldn't be tolerated anywhere but one thing at a time). It might make her understand. Or should we go as planned and not use this for punishment. Just for clarity... I am not talking about punishing her loosing control but the hitting, pinching, trying to break Dad's glasses thing. What would you all do?
