Well, after the very hectic few weeks we had, things are starting to calm down
First, an update on DS: He's doing ok and there is no big sequel from the adventure on the bus. However, today, I did find out a little more and it turns out that the agression was not unwarranted: he initiated the fight by hitting one kid in the face with an elbow. That's when the other guy reacted and punched him. We're pretty sure that that's what happen, as the 4 other guys are all telling the same story and there are gaps in my DS's story. I do hope he doesn't get in trouble over this: in the end, he wasn't the victim... or not the victim he pretended to be
Since last week we've been having some issues with him not wanting to stay in school and work. I think it's from getting used that when things got bad, he would misbehave and would then be sent home. Well, as he ages and we're finding the right medication, that part of the problem is now under control... but he doesn't quite believe that he has to stay in school. Yesterday, despite my saying &quot;no&quot;, he left school and went home. Boy, was I angry :burning: He tried to pull that off again today, but it didn't work. In the end, he not only ended up staying... he ended up doing a great day
And he's now very proud of himself!!! I'm not counting my chickens before they hatch, though: I'm not deluding myself that we've won the war. We've just won a very small battle!!!
On the BIL issue, we finally have a much clearer picture of what's been happening. It wasn't a matter of SIL having a burn-out or of her cheating on him. I'ts entirely a matter of him having a schizophrenic episode, filled with delusion and paranoia!!! He even had her arrested, twice, saying that she was fighting and violent when, in reality, he was the one doing the fighting!!! and the cops believed him, because he did the calling :burning: He also was getting very weird and had been keeping his little DD's out of school, pretexting that there was a pedophile around their place (there was, but he was caught) and that they were learning things about demons in school. He also told the girls that, one of these days, the three of them would go to the country and sleep for a long, long time. My oldest DN told her mom she didn't want to go to heaven just yet :cry:
Thankfully, he's now interned and will remain that way until he is under control. But it's still very sad and very stressful on DH, who sees a lot of the same behavior in our precious DS: DS has a diagnosis of borderline schizophrenia. That's why he has a tendency to believe these stories he concocts. Hopefully, he was cought early enough and we'll be able to get it all under control before it develops into full blown schizophrenia.
As for me, well I'm now back to Mincavi and back to PACE. I'm so proud of myself for doing it and really don't understand why I waited until I'd gained 30 lbs before going back
And I can't for the life of me understand how I could gain so much weight in less than a year
The good thing is that I'm doing it. That bad one is that I'm achy from the exercise after not doing it for a whole month
