When does one admit defeat and move on to another strategy?
Defeat just may be on the horizon here.
We have been struggling and working so hard to implement strategies, change diet, routines, introduce school & professionals etc have all been added into our life in order to diminish this thing called adhd. Always a work in progress.
Yesterday was one of those days that indicated there is no progress....just regression. It was awful and the full magnitude of it didn't hit me until the end...when I wasn't immersed in the middle of the anger, frustration, impulsive behavior and chaos.
I feel completely lost.
Over my head.
Unsure and confused.
So I cried my eyes dry, talked with my favorite husband who was equally concerned, turned to the heart of a dear friend, then went to Indigo and picked up two new books: The Difficult Child by Stanley Turecki and There's an Elephant in the Playroom.
Today is a new day. Although the crisis has passed, the feelings it's left in it's wake have not. Still confused...feeling deflated....praying for a brighter day, clear answers and results.
