Day 84 - Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde

Luke tried to leave school today. He had a pretty ugly outburst and wanted to leave. He ended up with a one way pass to the principal's office.

"Mom, can you come get me?" Uh, "Nooooo way. You'd better fix your attitude because you're going to be there for another 2 hours."

I thanked the principal which is code for "sorry for having to put up with my child" and immediately called the pediatrician.

I get the OK for a prescription change that I hope will be miracle #2. Concerta (miracle #1) did work wonders at first, but lately his behavior is challenging. Time to tweak.

I wonder how much of this is ADHD, how much is his Dad being gone, and how much is just Luke. I know I can't blame my perfect parenting skills. (ha!)

So, Strattera, I need you to work. Really, really work. Because I just might make it if you don't.

  1. Oh sweetie! This was me on Memorial Day. Thrilled with her attitude in the morning, and wanting to strangle her by the time she went to bed, lol. I agree about the not knowing what it is! With Ross gone I know they are under more stress than normal... but I still expect basic skills, ya know? Anyway, I am crossing my fingers that Strattera works! We are changing Haley's meds this summer as well... I think she may be on too much of it, but don't want the teacher to have to test that out, lol. ;) We will test together. :)
