Aside from me sleeping quite a bit during the day, things are still fairly “normal” over here.
I’ve noticed a trend recently that if I haven’t done anything interesting, or if I’m not struggling with something, I don’t bother to post.
This week I’m tracking Little Bear’s stuff along with my stuff due to the school claiming to see symptoms of psychosis in him. Since I haven’t seen anything at home that flags as such to me, I decided to document meds and behaviors in case I’ve been missing something. I may need to change the tracker’s template down the road if this is going to become a thing. Continue reading “Tode’s Weekly Assessment #67”
First thing this morning, Little Bear was upset that today was still a school day. Then as we were getting ready for the bus (5 minutes before its arrival mind you), he gets mad that he can’t find the insert for his winter coat and complained about not being able to play the “sweater game” in class today. Sorry kiddo, but this is why we have a coat rack just for you at your height. So I sent him off and waited for the phone call I knew I would be getting today.
It started with Little Bear last Monday, followed by Tuxedo Cat that Friday. Then my parents got it and yesterday I was hit with it – hard. (Didn’t realize until today that the reason my family has always used the term “creeping crud” for illness that spreads to everyone is because it’s military slang. Kind of amusing.)
Just got back from the school meeting about Little Bear. He’s showing signs of destabilizing affect as well as exhibiting behavior that’s suggesting hallucinations. This is why we had him screened for pediatric on-set Schizophrenia and this is why he’s under observation for Bipolar Type I.
While I did get Chapter 13 finished and started on Chapter 14, my internet connection has been wonky all day. It makes streaming music challenging and frustrating.
Thank you, Leslie, for suggesting that I drop the “What I Would Have Done Differently” portion of this format. I completely agree that I shouldn’t be feeding into any maladaptive perfectionism that will only bring me down at the end of the day. Instead, I’ll try to focus on the things I’m grateful for. A boost in positivity can’t be a bad thing.
It’s 9pm and I’ve only got the 194 words I wrote this morning before therapy and errands done so far. I have no clue as to why I’m so tired physically, but I am. So at 3pm I took a nap.
Power is back up and running for us finally! It went down Monday at 8am and we’ve been without power, water, and sewer until just now around 11:30am.
