50 Long Minutes
Dominyk and I went to his psychiatrist appointment.
Before she got in the room, he completely harassed me for a full 40 minutes. He chanted that he was bored. He banged his head on the wall. He threatened to leave. He threw toys. He said we had to leave. Told me we couldn't wait for her. Told me he had to leave... couldn't take it anymore, needed to go.
When she finally came in I was explaining to her that his latest medication is not working and he cooperated and gave her a full demonstration. He got obsessed for some reason with buying an iced coffee at McDonalds (since she said he was not to have pop). He would not let it go. I used every technique I could think of to stop him and it didn't work.
She changed one of his meds.
I hope that her conclusion was that the medication was the issue. I hope she didn't conclude it was my parenting. Sigh.
And no, I never got the nap I needed. And the OCD bored thing really did just about push me over the edge.
