amo_mea_filiis. Posted July 20, 2012 Share Posted July 20, 2012 I have had it with ds lately. A friend called tonight after i had ds tucked in. She needed someone to talk to because her cousin's husband commited suicide and it is greatly affecting her and her whole family. Ds came down to use the bathroom which is fine and encouraged. However, i only tuck them in one time and always have. After the bathroom he gave me a kiss and decided to sit on the living room chair. I asked friend to hold on for a second and told ds to go back to bed and i would see him in the morning (normal if he gets up after tucking in). He started screaming that he was starving and f this f that. He ATE dinner tonight, and plenty of it, along with watermelon for dessert. I had to get off the phone while my friend was hysterical over a death. I am done. I went for a bike ride and it helped, but i can't leave in the middle of tantrums. His behavior therapist is doing nothing to help us, but i'm not even sure what they're supposed to be doing! I'm thinking of taking August off of all therapies and outside activities. What can i do to keep myself calm when he is going off? Think of an abusive drunk running his mouth, and that's where are. Ps. Thank you very $@#*Â¥Â£â‚¬ much mr. psychologist who thought ds expressing himself when angry was a good idea (in place of slamming his ladder against his bed).
