I have had a hard day, and Akila isn't even home from school. The emotions of the severity of her behavior has hit me. I have spent the day calling the county, emailing Dr.'s, friends, researching, etc. In between emails and calls, I cried. And I cried.
I didn't get this post finished before the bus arrived. She raged again all night, well, she settled down at dinner time, after about two hours of raging, over wanting fake fingernails (which she currently is wearing, but wants different ones). I am being told different things by different people, and need some time to think about what strategy we need to take with her behavior.
Tomorrow (or today I should say), I will be at a FASD workshop at the U of M all day. And then on Friday, Akila and I will go to see her new Psychiatrist for a med adjustment, which is obviously needed. I am off to bed now, praying sleep will come quickly.
