I have emailed my son's specialist about my son having a few bad days this week and am just waiting on a reply to see what suggestions she has wether it's a medication change or should isolate him from his sister which I think is the reason why he is having meltdowns at the moment with her finishing school and a lot of changes in her life.

I got an email back from the specialist and she is on holidays now.She did suggest a change in medication in the morning.

Hi Mark

Would the change in medication help with the anxiety about the changes with his sister?

I can imagine the change is upsetting your son. It must be difficult for you!

Hi Hanna the change in medication is more for anger issues then his anxiety.He seems to get more angry in the afternoon so just a little increase to see if it makes a difference.He only has another couple of weeks left of school to holidays.Hopefully over the holidays he improves.We will see the specialist next year before he goes back to school.

Take care,

Mark.

Hi Mark, how was Ur sons day at school today? Hope . Hope all can go well for the end of year. Must be hard on kids or affecttheir interest, knowing it's the last few weeks or days and things don't matter much anymoee.

In the last weeks of school we used to play games , I don't know if liked it so much as it felt pointless and weird like they just wanted to pass the time as there was no work to be done. I remember sometimes we'd get candy which was probably more exciting to me!

Hope this week turns out well for u all and the specialists advice is helpful for Ur son

Hi sleepy nice to see you on here.Thdle last couple of weeks are just fun activities and rehearsing for the Christmas concert.Its a complete change in routine for my son and that triggers him as well.Nothing ever stays the same and he needs to get use to things changing.So hopefully as he gets older start to deal better with change.

Take care,

Mark.

I can relate to not coping with change ,so I feel for your son as he deals with end of year routine.
How are you going..?

Hi quirky my son only has this week to go of school and then he is finished for the year and then we restart the whole process again next year.The change at the start of the year are hard for him to get use to as well.They usually give us his classroom and teacher for next year by now but that usually changes st the start of the year.I have been really tired of late.I would love to just rest but have a busy week ahead with a few things on.I will be taking my daughter into town to apply for some jobs and to the RSPCA to apply for volunteer work and they don't open to Wendesday.

Take care,

Mark.

This morning I took my daughter around to pet stores and RSPCA where she handed in her resumes.She wants to do volunteering at the RSPCA and has to wait two months to she's 18.

I am not really happy with my son's school as they don't check if he needs to go to the toilet and he has misshaps and don't change him.Somsthing I will have to address it at the meeting we have before school starts.

Hi Mark it is Really disappointing how little some educational places care for kids...to be left without being changed is so wrong. Hope u can discuss it in the meeting before the new year.

Great to hear Ur daughter has things set up

My grandmother used to say she never trusted anyone who didn't love animals. She had many pets.
