Don't be too hard on yourself. The people that love you understand... and get "it".


I second Wes, don't be so hard on your self. What I see is a mother who has identified a challenge with her son, her son even knows he has a challenge (I'm using challenge because I just don't know the right word TO use, please don't take offence)and you are doing something about it. Sure sure you did something then stopped when things went well, who doesn't? When something works it feels like it has fixed the challenge/issue and you think it will be smooth sailing from here out. You've recognized that you need help, that your relationship with your son, and perhaps the family dynamic is suffering. You are seeking assistance. This is a good thing. Kudos to you Michelle, super mom!


So sorry you are struggling but I think you made the right decision. I hope this doc will be more of a help you, Gabe and the whole family. You will get through this and Gabe will be fine. Hang in there!

Such a challenge, Michelle... it definitely takes a village. I'm glad you found a new therapist and really hope it's helpful! Also- this may or may not be of interest to you, but there have been some diet tweaks that have helped- some children are especially sensitive to gluten or dairy and it might be worth a try to cut one or both out... but of course, it's not a guaranteed fix and is a HUGE challenge to adapt kids to that style of eating.


Thanks, everyone. It's been challenging, but I feel good that we're taking steps to make the situation better : )
