I have been doubting myself and my decisions to medicate difficult child. I went thru some old e-mails from psychiatrist and teachers from 06, and I no longer doubt myself. He has made so much improvement since that time, it is amazing. He no longer routinely threatens people, and is much less moody. I am glad I keep all correspondence in a file so I can go back thru it, it is so helpful to be able to look back and see how far he really has come. It is so hard when all the feedback I get from the school is negative, I have to fight to find positive. One other question, in light of the happenings of the other day (smoking) difficult child has had some serious consequences including not being allowed to be friends with the child who brought the cigarettes to school, who was his best friend. difficult child is acting pretty depressed. I am thinking this is normal, who wouldn't be? I was going to give him a week or so before I became overly concerned. Does this sound reasonable?
