Actions speak louder than words? Over the last few weeks ktbug has had sex education in school. husband & I reluctantly & with consultation with therapist, agreed to this. With one caveat - if kt appeared anxious, agitated or outright crazy this was going to end. In the last week, 3 days in a row before my sisters came to visit, kt had 3 hour meltdowns each night with either crisis team needing to be called in or PRN medications needed; one night both. Thursday I ended up keeping kt home from school due to the triple dose of PRN medications ordered by psychiatrist (he knew there were no beds available & didn't want us to waste time sitting in an ER). School, the next day & then yesterday, started the truancy issues again. On top of that, they can hardly believe that kt would have such level of behaviors - they never see it at school! AND she was being appropriate in the sex education classes & asking appropriate & well thought out questions. Sigh......how many times have you heard "we don't see it here at school"? Sigh. The sex education class ended immediately upon kt's last meltdown. Twenty minutes after things settled (crisis team was still here) kt came & asked about semen, condoms & other such things. Presented as fearful to the crisis team about questions of a sexual nature. That night she needed me to stay in her room for several hours until she fell asleep. Again - "we aren't seeing that here at school". Doesn't it just want to make you scream???? kt wasn't in Residential Treatment Center (RTC) for 10 months last year just for giggles. She has a significant hx of sexual abuse & this class was agreed upon unless/until kt presented either at school or at home, a level of agitation that made things unhealthy or dangerous. Hello ..... did no one read this on the permission slip? Thanks for letting me vent..... by the way, kt doesn't remember these meltdowns.....I let her know about them. I also "am the meanest mom in the world". Actions do speak louder than words.
