Today we went in for another check up with Noah's Psychiatrist. We sat down and went through some questions. He asked Noah if he liked school. Noah replied "No.....I LOVE it." The psychiatrist got a kick out of it and laughed for a minute and then told me I needed to record it. So I thought I would record it along with his progress. Noah is doing well on his medication. we still have our moments, but they aren't as bad or nearly as often. He is a different boy, a true 8 almost 9 year old. It is good to see. He has told me that he likes how his medicine makes him feel better and not so worried. The plan right now is to keep him on his meds. until this summer, and then when he doesn't have the pressures of school we will take him off and see how he does. His doctor says with maturity and help he can learn the coping mechanisms to deal with stress and anxiety. So we will see how it goes. I am along for the ride, as always, and hope that I can help Noah get the skills he needs to have a good life (not that I feel slightly successful at any given time).

Good to hear! It is an adventure, this parenting thing. I am glad he feels better and recognizes it!

I totaly know what you mean! I'm glad he is doing better. I started having severe anxiety-panic attacks, in September and then I had a miscaraige in November which resutled in severe postpartum depression. I'm on medicane that seems to be helping along with working out, counseling, self-help books, blessings, and tons of support. It's a long, hard road to be on. He will be okay. You have an awesome family and extended family! I love you guys!
