Im still figuring stuff out. Connors got adhd and mood disorder and learning disorder and PDD NOS.
His aggression could be bipolar disorder but they won't say so yet cuz he's young(although I know others have been in other states). Im sick of med trying and failing.
None have helped the aggression yet. He punches, pinches, threatens to kill, swears every day.
I go for an initial consult with a new therapist to try something called Parent Child Intensive Therapy and I am hoping that helps. All I know is I'm pooped by days end and grateful school started.
Connors odd behavior started when he was a few months old but became even more at 17/18 months. But his aggression showed up a few years ago then heightened after Dan died.
That was my biggest thing was the counselor wanted to blame it on Dan's illness and death. Didn't matter how many times I explained it, still seemed he didn't get it past his thick skull.
course not, JM is quite strict on it in comparison to some forums, don't sweat it. But I can't leave it if I see it.
I'm guessing most of you are busy tonight? Might log off soon. I'm alternating watching The X Factor auditions - giving it a go, haven't watched it in a few years - and playing SongPop on FB in the ad breaks.
I have thought about going to work, but it would mess up Ryan's SSI and Medicaid for his Autism. The money from SSI is not the important thing, it is the medicaid. Ryan was sick the whole month of March and was at the Ped every week and 2 ER visits. I am glad we had Medicaid. I am also not sure what type of job would let me have the whole month off to care for a sick kid. He was throwing up and had diarrhea. Daycares wouldn't take him.
I would have to think harder about going back to work if my mum and my partner weren't both home.
My mum is officially Daniel's carer as he needs 1:1 supervision and attention pretty much round the clock.
At present, my partner is able to look after Michaela. When he gets a job we will have to look at a childminder part-time unless our hours end up fitting right in with when Daniel is at school, in which case mum can do some of Michaela's care but would need paying to be fair to her.
