Justin has a doctor's appt today. First, we are going to have the doc check out his ears. He had serious ear issues at birth that weren't followed up until he came to live with us when he was 20 months old. He had tubes and has improved, but he's been very loud recently. He's had the TV cranked up, and he keeps asking us to repeat ourselves. So, hearing checkup it is!
But more importantly, we are going to speak with the doctor regarding his recent behavior issues. Justin has been struggling a lot, and I have been struggling with him. He's been extremely defiant, terribly rude and basically evil to be around. Because he has RAD, I can't tell if there are other issues going on or if it just a complication of the RAD.
The last time we saw the doc, he gently suggested that perhaps it was time to consider some ADD/ADHD medications. I'm not sure whether or not I'm willing to go there.
Please pray for this appt. I'll keep you updated.
