Meds are tricky. Some work for a bit, then stop. Some don't play well with other meds. Some need to be fine tuned. I got rid of one med and shrinking dose of another.
I've been trying to lessen the need for a booster dose of ADHD meds in the evening which keeps him awake even more than his usual night-owl tendency. And I just don't like so many drugs going into my kid, I'd like to keep it to a minimum. I try to give him his daily dose as late as possible before school and even later on non-school days.
10:30 am: G screeching, jumping, chewing on his shirt...
"Mom, you forgot to Give Meeeeeeeee my MEDS!"
Am I dreaming? Is it? Could it be? Has this 9 month haul given birth to G's first glimmer of self-awareness? A miracle moment indeed. It could be his first baby step on the long, winding uphill path of self-regulation. Fingers crossed!
I feel like throwing a party. :)
