Feeling Like a Failure
Everyone told me middle school would be difficult, but I didn’t know just how bad it would get! Every day brings a new challenge. My son has skipped school, used vulgar language, acted out, become extremely difficult to talk to. He is struggling socially, but not academically. It’s so difficult!
Today, he was moved from being mainstreamed back into the self-contained classroom. He screamed the f-word many times at teachers, refused to talk to them, and had to be physically removed.
I just called his therapist, that he hasn’t seen in several years. Thankfully, she can see him this week. We go back to the psychiatrist in a few weeks, so we can check on meds. I am finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel with all my medical bills from him, and now, I will be right back in debt.
I am angry, frustrated, and terribly sad. Please tell me there will a be a time when things get a little easier.
