13 hours in to Sissy's weekend TL at home, 9 of which she was sleeping and she's lied three times, been given a consequence, slammed a door in her anger and had three crying outbursts. And that's not including all the self-centeredness and somewhere in there I keep trying to find the love I have for my child. I've got to find it. I WILL find it.
She's agreed to a haircut. Thank God because her hair is a mess. And the jacket she got form her grandmother for Christmas that she's not taken off since 12-28-09 is probably ruined but I had her put it in the washer in hopes it might be salvaged. The dang thing could probably walk away, it was so filthy. (because she refuses to obey RTC rules about laundry duties...)
OK, be positive, mom. Find something good...
I think this med mix is actually working for her. She's a little spacey but the psychoses I could see in her eyes before she went to RTC is gone. All hail risperdone, lamictal and immipramine!
RTC nurse did not pack enough Colace, but Aspie Boy has Miralax so I can supplement.
Unsupervised playtime with her siblings is baned. Wonder Girl came to us at 5 am, the fifth night in a row she's had a nightmare that someone or something was trying to kill her. Last night she dreamed a dinosaur was tearing down our house and a mirror fell on her head and cracked her skull open. The Dad said to me, "yeah, the dinosaur tearing down the house? metaphorical symbol for Sissy?" I nodded in agreement.
later peeps. She said she wanted to play with Wonder Girl outside so I'm on the porch supervising but her "play with wonder girl" equates to lay on the trampoline playing her recorder while shouting at Wonder Girl who is in the sand box what she thinks Wonder Girl should be doing, some of which includes instructions of what Wonder Girl should do for Sissy. Nipped THAT in the butt real quick. I keep telling myself it's not self-centeredness, it's self-preservation, the mind of the RAD child is self-preservation at all cost, THIS is what needs to be healed. focus mom, focus. Don't let her get your goat!
