I am so frustrated with everything at the moment. We had our first session with the new/old therapist Val and Jakes was bouncing all over the place. When he stepped out for a bathroom break, she asked me if this was normal or if he was showing off. I would like to think some was showing off but this behavior is becoming regular. I am so frustrated with his behavior at home, I am still trying to use the technique Val told me about, but I need to practice. I am still yelling more than I want to. I need time. I need to stop being so hard on myself. I need a vacation.
Son's father is frustrating me as well. I have sent him everything I have on Jakes, all the reports, my stories about his behaviors, any reports from school that I have. EVERYTHING. And its still not enough for his father. He insists I have a better report than what I have sent him. He says he doesn't have enough information to make a decision. He says I didn't give him a report from the old therapist. I offered to get it for him but he never responded that he wanted it. So I called the agency to see how I can get it. They want $15 for it. I am not paying it. If he wants the report, he can pay it and make arrangements to get the report. I have signed authorizations for him to be allowed to contact the therapists and Doctors but he never does. I done spoon feeding him information. If he wants it, he can get it himself. Grow up and be a responsible parent. Of course, this will end up with us in court and will delay any improvement Jakes could make on the medication. But I am done holding his hand and guiding him through stuff. I am not his wife (thank you!) or his mother. Handle it yourself.
On a good note, Jakes pediatrician said that if I can get him the psychiatrists evaluation, he would monitor Jakes medicine for us and we can see whatever therapist we want. Woo ho! That was easy!
I did something stupid. Well, it didn't seem stupid at the time but...... I have always wanted to review grants. I write them but I want to see how the end process works. So when an opportunity for reviewing grants came up, I signed up and went through the training. I now have 16 grants to review by Friday. ugh.
Since I have so much to do, 14 grants to write by 12/2, I better sign off and get typing!
