Thu, 13 Nov 2014 08:55:26 EST No peace until he is done http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5814139 none. It will always be this way until he stops. The psych appt was better but it still is not good at home. He just does not want to stop I think... I just hope that he does not get hurt because of this, he has such great friends at school, Shame if they start treating him bad. Kids can be so mean! Mon, 10 Nov 2014 10:22:52 EST Peace http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5812424 Another Psych appt - another few weeks of peace until the explosions begin again. It happens every time. I am so tired of this cycle. Please, little man, stop this behavior before the next explosion... I can not take it anymore!!!! <BR> <BR> I know it is a control issue and he really has no idea how or why he is controlling it but others do not and after a while it just boils up in frustration and BOOM! <BR> <BR> Just venting.... don't mind me! Fri, 7 Nov 2014 08:23:42 EST Happy Halloweenie! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5808190 <em>333</em> <em>423</em> <em>275</em> <em>421</em> <em>420</em> <em>431</em> <em>424</em> <em>419</em> <em>423</em> Fri, 31 Oct 2014 13:44:15 EST Better? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5803839 I will not talk too fast but yesterday was a much better as well as at night. He did better in school - NO lying and only once he had to change and he did it without lying! Last night he changed HIMself when he was getting ready for bed. We would not have known had he not forgotten to flush the soiled paper in the toilet. He willingly gave me the soiled underwear he had put in his hamper as well which tells me he was not trying to hide it. Do I take that as a fluke or as a possible trend... Fri, 24 Oct 2014 08:58:19 EST When will it end??! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5803235 I am so tired of it all.... when will life get back to normal? When is our home going to become normal. I am tired of the yelling, punnishing, threatening... the anger that is flowing through the house. It is all from one thing and I love him to no end but if he does not stop what he is doing soon something is going to happen and I and nervous of that! I wish there was a magic powder or spell of SOMETHING that could make him STOP! He is spending his recess in the principal's office agai... Thu, 23 Oct 2014 08:39:57 EST Tired http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5802650 of everything! Wed, 22 Oct 2014 08:52:55 EST AARRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGGG http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5802008 when you are at the point where you do not know what else to do... I am at a loss. He HAS been medically cleared. I wonder if we should just d/c the mirilax he is currently on and change to a fiber regimin and see if that makes any difference?? I have to call the doctor soon and give a report but what do I say? I have not seen anything to know if reducing the miralax makes a difference since he continually poops at school (and his pants) and not much at home...even then it is in his pant... Tue, 21 Oct 2014 09:21:19 EST Frustrated... at a loss! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5801699 I do not know what to do anymore! My son continues to poop his pants (3x in school today!!) Hubby had to pick up in school and he is lying about it - like you can no smell it??????. I need a miracle to get him to stop. Medically he is cleared. They all think it is behavior. HE is controlling it but he does not know why. I hope the school does not eventually kick him out (public school) . What is a parent to do?????!!!!!! Mon, 20 Oct 2014 18:44:25 EST 20 years! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5799150 <em>384</em> <em>384</em> <em>384</em> <em>384</em> <em>384</em> <em>384</em> to Hubby and myself! <BR> <BR> This is a record in my family for 1st marriages....scary I have know him more than half my life!

Here he and his fellow Scouts were learing to raise the flag properly. He, at first, thought Cub Scouts would be boring but once he started he now plans to continue to being a Boy Scout! We are hoping it will help with his issues (shyness, lack of confidence and most of all his soiling issue - YES! he is STILL doing THAT!). The Troop Leader and Den Leader both know about his issue...

Yes, the idiot light for low tire pressure came on when I started my car this morning!!! So... I had to stand IN the rain (I WAS having a good hair day - do not have those often!) and check each tire - the passenger front tire was only 26 pounds... hope it is not a sign that I need yet another tire. Hope it is just because the change of weather. I really do not want to have to stop in the rain on the way home and again put ...

Just hope it is not too humid there - ugh! Thu, 3 Jul 2014 09:05:58 EST Walking at work http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5729900 Been doing more walking at lunch instead of sitting playing with my phone in the lunch room. Only takes me 5-10 minutes to actually eat mt lunch - leaves me with 20 min that I can use to walk. I do not like sitting in there half the time anyway depending on the company.

There. I am done whining (for the moment). Just going to keep it up while at my desk and try to resist using the treamill at the gym tonight since that would most likey make it worse. I really have to get this fixed... but I know I will not. Doctor is a waste of time (and cost me $500.00 already for xrays last year that showed nothing and the doc never really calle me on them after they were done). So i just will have to deal and rest when it hurts! Mon, 2 Jun 2014 10:35:19 EST Morning! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5705853 That's it! Have a great day!
