Today has just been a day in the week of horrible
I havent really been watching what ds has been eating, i know thats bad for him, but we have been so buisy and he's been soooooo cranky i just give in.
In the new year i want to find out what going on but i also want to have 1. more patience and 2. more willpower
Everyone tells me to take dyes out of my older DS's diet and see what happens...but it seems like such a daunting task... same with taking so many things out of little ds's diet. Im so lost and confused I just want someone to come into my house and help me!!
I have had no patience for older ds this week and it feels like he is always in trouble... the past three days he has pooped on his floor. little ds has had exlosions and of course my DD needs attention too so she acts out (even at 8!!)
My SO is nooo help, he has a short fuse and refuses to do poop. He went back to work early so he could "have a break" and to top it all off my dayhome kids started back yesturday so ive had a full house. Plus the puppy SO got me for Christmas.

sorry to make it such a long vent.
I just feel really overwhelmed

Ugh..the food thing... Yah. That is about all I can say. It is a nightmare until you get into a routine. The light at the end of the tunnel ideology is no more apparent than with food allergies...at least from my experience....there is one...you just have to keep moving to see it. (((HUGS))) I hope everything settles down for you guys soon!!!

Until 4 allergy testing is prone to false negatives. That is why Danny's list keeps growing. He has most likely had most of his allergies all along but the tests didn't register yet due to lack of accuracy in young patients... :/ Not great but it helps some before the age of 4. Danny had 9 by then....now he has 15. I really hope you get him figured out soon so that you can all get through the day a little easier. Did they say why he was tube fed initially?
