We had an eventful day and I’m fucking exhausted. The boys had their appointments this afternoon at Akron Children’s Hospital. The appointments went pretty well. Right now, we’re trying to deal with the excessive anxiety and sleep disruption both the boys are experiencing since their mom left earlier this summer.
It’s very difficult to tease apart ADHD and anxiety because they can present similarly.
There hasn’t been any major changes anything at this point. We did add a new medication to help with sleep for Elliott and nightmares for Emmett. Elliott is starting Clonidine and Emmett is starting something similar but I can’t remember the name.
Emmett began his new meds tonight but Elliott will have to wait until tomorrow cause his script hasn’t arrived yet.
We’re hoping that we can get their sleep issues under control and see if that helps with their overall existence.
Emmett has been all over the place and pretty much driving me crazy with his behaviors. He’s not manic but it sorta reminds me of mania. It’s been a really long day and I’m need to try and get some sleep while I can.
