Angry Elijah

I'm not sure what's going on lately but Elijah has been easily angered lately. Now don't misunderstand me, this is NOTHING like when he was taking the Concerta. Maybe a better word for it is frustrated not angry. Things have been really up in the air for him lately. He's being pulled out of class all the time for testing so that the school can determine what services he needs and we can get his IEP done. This is a good thing and needs to be done, but it's a disruption to his schedule, which is a major stressor for him. On top of this, he missed 4 days of school because he was sick, and Dave's away right now, so all in all he's just having an awful time. He raises his voice to me when I try to get him to stay on task, becomes more repetitive in his behaviors and generally has even less of an ability to focus than normal. I'm hoping that this really is due to stress and not a new behavior because one of the best things about Elijah is his sweet personality.

There is a time for everything,
a season for every activity
under heaven. A time to be
born and a time to die. A
time to plant and a time to
harvest. A time to kill and
a time to heal. A time to
tear down and a time to
rebuild. A time to cry and
a time to laugh. A time to
grieve and a time to dance.
A time to scatter stones
and a time to gather stones.
A time to embrace and a
time to turn away. A time to
search and a time to lose.
A time to keep and a time to
throw away. A time to tear
and a time to mend. A time
to be quiet and a time to
speak up. A time to love
and a time to hate. A time
for war and a time for peace.

Best wishes for continued ascendancy,
Dr. Howdy
