We have hit day 5 of Elliott being on Risperdal and are having mixed results. So far, some days have been better than others. Overall, I would say that his anxiety is reduced and I think that’s fairly obvious?
We have been seeing the whining and anxiousness rearing it’s ugly little head again.
However, I have to say that Elliott has been much, much more cooperative and pleasant to be around. It’s notbthat he was ever unpleasant, it’s just the whining was like water that slowly eroded away my patience and sanity.
The biggest change thus far is the fact that he seems to be happier. Before he was always worried about something and now he just seems more relaxed.
It does my heart good to see him happier. He deserves to be happy and I’m thrilled that we are heading back in that direction. 🙂
