This week we get a note saying how fidgety he was, though it didn't affect his work. DH wants to make an appointment to discuss meds so he doesnt fall behind and start to get discouraged making things worse. I'm just nervous about giving him meds so early, I feel like we should be able to help with this without meds but at the same time we are frustrated at home not knowing how to help. Behaviors that we are getting that are just flat out annoying us atm are things like throwing things at us and sisters, knocking his sisters over or basically bulldozing them and hitting. Name calling. Constantly mooning and potty humor. trying to throw himself on our backs without warning or even if asked not to.
I've been trying to follow Dr. markham's style, but I fall short a lot. DH is like surfing in a stormy sea, he is bipolar and ADHD so there are days that are really good, but most days he holes up in the basement for everyone's sake. I don't want to give meds just so he is easier to handle or to make our lives easier but I'm not sure where to go from here.
