Yesterday morning started out very rough. A was in such a state! She already had biofeedback scheduled for that day, but I also got her in to the Chiropractor and her behavior therapist. I think all were helpful. BUt we had a different behavior therapist yesterday and she could see how defeated I was. She helped us make a plan where A gets absolutely zero downtime that is not scheduled. Free time has to be earned.
I really like it when we work with this other therapist because I feel like she has such concrete ideas for us. I also feel like we have a pretty regimented schedule around here, but on vacation, J and I also like to just relax and not be “on” all the time. The therapist’s ideas were very good ones but they also made me feel like such an idiot as a parent. Everyone knows that kids need to be occupied or they will get into trouble. Today went very well. I REALLY hope tomorrow will follow the same suit.
Now, if my stress level could just match the level of chaos in the house we would be all set. But I am on such high alert that I can not calm my body or mind down!!!!!
