I forgot about this blog... that's how good I've been feeling.
I realized, rather quickly, that going off my meds would not be wise, at this time in my life. It would take a lot of inner-focus and constant attention to myself. I have four kids. That's not realistic. My son, in particular, needs me to be able to help him focus; having to focus myself, first, wouldn't be helpful.
Plus, I feel pretty fantastic. So much, that I was seriously thinking I wasn't really sanity-challenged. I have to think it's because of the meds... I don't recall ever really feeling like this.
My son, I have to say, has been doing so great, lately. He still gets frustrated, but he's able to calm himself and stay somewhat rational (you know, for a 7 yr old) so he can still control his actions. That has been such a huge blessing (and relief!). He still sort of struggles with not getting overwhelmed, easily, but every once in a while, I'll see him taking a deep breath so he can refocus, all over, again.
I'm not naive, enough, to think things will always be this way... but I can hope.
I'm thankful I can focus on the moment; for modern medicine and its ability to aid me in this venture.
And I'm thankful to my Heavenly Father for helping me so I can partner with Him to help my son.
