Yeah...so you know when I was talking yesterday about how we've been doing good....yeah, about that....
It seems as if I jinxed it. I hate when that happens!
Today (and it's only 10:15am mind you) has been a complete disaster. Everything should be good. Taz slept fine, ate enough, lots of exercise. I even tried to make a semi-structured schedule for him. Albeit very lame with my own pencil drawings of activities. I plan on printing nicer pictures this weekend to use as a schedule. Especially since I'm homeschooling after this month (more on that later).
But, none of that made any difference. Taz was manic at first. I thought that would stop once he had his morning medicine. It did stop, but turned into extreme irritability. I don't know which I prefer. Both are really annoying to deal with.
So, this could mean it's a bad day, all day. Or he could perk up after his afternoon risperdal. It could go either way.
It's nice out so I planned lots of outdoor activities, plus some down time. With most bipolar kids it helps to keep busy. He whined all morning to color easter eggs. So we did. Then he whined all during easter eggs to have a snack. I told him after we finished he could eat an egg. Then we went outside, where we usually have a great time.
Well, his powerwheels wouldn't work the way he wanted. Meltdown. We wanted to go on a wagon ride with Chica so we started to, but every time she moved from her seat, he would hit her. So I took him out. Meltdown. We came inside for a snack (yes, another. His depakote makes him eat like crazy). Taz had a meltdown over where to eat his cracker. Ridiculous!
It's just one of those days where nothing goes right for him. It's sad, really.
But I'm hoping he feels better this afternoon.
Like I said. We go day by day.
Anyway....if I don't post tomorrow. Happy Easter everyone!
