The report from school contains all smiles.
At home, we still see the following: growling, kicking, hitting, and aggression.
We wonder when to expect this new medicine to work the way the doc says it will.
I don’t like the medication at all, though, because he seems worse to me, even if the school sees a better him.
I wonder where my sweet boy went.
Why do I get the boy the growls and kicks and hits and bites?
Yes, we get hugs and kisses, too, but we also get the uptick in behaviors no matter how many times we put him in his room.
We explain to him that he is allowed to feel sad/angry/frustrated, but not allowed to hurt others.
Sometimes I want to reverse all the things we did and stop all the medication, but I know it would hit his system too hard.
What if we took it all away and started fresh, though?
I don’t know, but I do know that more than anything, I miss him.
