Her son has Asperger's. A friend recommended her. difficult child has been really argumentative lately and says it's my fault. (Of course; it's always someone else's fault.) Still, I left a msg with-his psychiatrist about his symptoms on Depakote: trembling hands, pounding heart, agitation, anxiety attacks. He said he wants to go back to lithium and put up with-the nosebleeds. I agree! Although I don't want to do anything dangerous. Sigh. Yesterday the two of us got into a prolonged argument/discussion where we both ended up in tears. It was the result of two dr appts on the same day, Tuesday, which difficult child hates to do. The problem is, so many appts end up on Tuesdays because that is the only day that husband can take off. And in fact, I had a dr appointment for difficult child Wed but the dr office called and changed it. Not my fault! I told him that but he harassed me in the car for 1/2 hr on the way there, just like he used to do. Then he started all over again yesterday. Then he told me that his girlfriend is his only friend and he thinks about dying all the time but is too afraid to kill himself. Arrgh. I know that he's miserable ... and so am I. I really think he's got a dual diagnosis. This is a well-earned appointment for myself today. Sorry about no paragraphs; this screen doesn't like my keyboard.
