I complained to the shrink that Geodon was holding GB in during the day, but by 5 o’clock she was really struggling. He added another 20 mg of Geodon at four o’clock. Things are better. I still can’t wait for the new shrink in March so we can try the next generation of Risperdal.
A boy from GB’s class called yesterday and invited her over for a play date today. He lives one block from the school and his mother will meet them at school and walk them to his house. It has been months since I let her go on a play date and she is equally excited about having a friend and spending an hour and a half after school without Hope. Our world is pretty small at this point.
I am pleased she is so excited and proud of myself for agreeing to it. I tend to err to the side of keeping the world small for them, so they can manage, but sometimes you have to let them enlarge their world a little bit to see if they are ready for it. It is such a balancing act.
