Reset


First- trigger warning for negativity and for anyone recently in a certain facebook group.   When my son was younger he had a much harder time controlling his emotions.  He was very, very sensitive. He would act out in Math class.  No one could figure out what was wrong.  I would dig in and figure […]

Why is my child violent?


My son has always been kind hearted and sweet.  He has always loved animals and has even lectured the neighbor that the moles their dog killed is God’s creature too.  Even as a teenager now he is always concerned about me.  He has an obsession with magnets and has these Ball of Whacks that he […]

Heartsick


I have started to write this post and scrapped it numerous times.  It may not all come out right, my feelings, emotions are still very raw.  I am still in the “recovery” phase. I had written previously that when you are ill and in need of help you find out who your true friends are.  […]

(No) Medications Update


This post is long overdue.  In fact I had planned on writing it before all hell broke loose.  But I just hadn’t gotten to it and really now I can provide even more information so I guess it all works out. In the past I had written about his medications and how we decided what […]

Parenting is Hard!

Will work for Brownies


The other night I woke up at 4:30 AM and just sensed that he was still awake. Oh yes he was still awake. When I went in to talk to him he refused to take his pills and was upset in general. Earlier that night he had become upset during a Geometry quiz. He had […]

My Meltdown


We are both still adjusting to Online school I suppose even though it has been a few weeks.  It felt like it was taking a lot of organization and executive functioning skills to figure out what needed to be done when.  I kept having a nagging feeling that I was over complicating things.  I think […]

Twice Exceptional = Twice Screwed


I really like the name Twice Exceptional.  Probably because it doesn’t have any bad connotations to it yet.  Special or special needs shouldn’t have a bad connotation either but lets face it, those titles unfortunately do. I was recently in a store and the cashier was having trouble and commented “don’t mind me, I’m special!” […]
