Today has not been the best, but I know much of that is due to the UTI that I confirmed while at the Nutritionist visit. Thankfully we always do a UA so it was easy to check. I am hoping to hear from the Naturopath tomorrow on some meds to help kick this to the curb and if I don't hear from her I will head to quick care as she is gone Friday. In the meantime I am using my essential oils that should help and might even be enough, but I know having meds as a backup plan is wise. Praying I feel better tomorrow. I am not miserable...just very sluggish.

The second piece of "not the best" was yet another issue with DS. Thankfully he did great with Kenzie (physical therapy) for their last 1:1 day together, but blew up when another issue came up while playing outside with his sister and the neighbor kids. He immediately goes into mega defense mode and when that happens there is no reasoning/talking to him. He ended up sitting in the back yard again for several hours and then he was able to talk with Tim after supper. He can relay the entire incident, but once again the disconnect is that he does not have awareness of his actions such as punching or kicking out "in play" and things such as that. Honestly how did get that "skill" in his possession is not something I know how to do other than a zillion times with the behavior consequences. So hard.

Tomorrow... hopefully feeling better for a gym trip and school with the kids. Nice having a schedule free day.

    Boy does your poster say it all. I was like that for many years. Thankfully I am no longer drowning.

    Praying your health comes right back!

    Continue to be patient with him. Do you have any other alternative for his behavior is off? I hoping & praying for peace in your life & home.

    Yes, girl, you did have a difficult day, but you know that God had everything control! As for your Ds, all I can do is continue to pray. But your UTI is another story. If you want to kick that in the bud, FOREVER, take one tablespoon of apple cider vinegar and you won't have anymore problems with a UTI. My sister told me this tip, as she got them constantly and finally the nurse, who had become her friend by then, told her what to do.
