While I love my children with all my heart and would not trade them for the world, I am way overwhelmed. All three of my children (8 yr old girl, 12 yo boy, and 15 yo boy) have mental health diagnosis's. They include: Aspergers, ADHD, possible Bi-Polar (being ruled out..I hope), psychosis, depression, and anxiety . Two are also diagnosed with PTSD and defiance issues. My younger boy also has severe migraines and has a history of a stroke.
In the past few months things have got so crazy that the police have been called, CPS has been called (unfounded) and now I have almost 15 different providers coming in and out of the home.
My oldest has been verbally and physically aggressive to his brother, sister, and I. The only person he refuses to physically attack is my husband. And most behaviors occur when my husband is at work. The other day he tried to throw his brother through a glass door and then took off.
The behaviors are not just at home. He recently was in trouble at school for throwing something at a teacher, lying to get teachers in trouble, swearing at teachers, dumping a carton of milk over a peers head, and skipping.
While behaviors are pretty much taking over my home, I work, and go to school full time and am alone most evenings with the kids because of my husbands work schedule.
My other children need my attention too and I am so stressed. The school has also decided that they want to consider my daughter for some altered classes based on difficulty learning.
Okay rant over. Thanks for "listening", it is much appreciated and I do feel a little better now that I have voiced how i feel.
