I'm getting to the point where, I won't be writing much about the tween. He's about to start secondary school, and the risk of someone he knows coming across my blog and making life difficult for him, stops me.
However, right now, there is so much going on for him, I have to write. Because this space is mine..........and I need something/somewhere to vent!
The stuff that is going on for him, is happening for all the children in his school year.
There are leavers trips, leavers assemblies (which he is playing guitar for), there are days at the local comprehensive, they are also putting on a production of Bugsy Malone! Busy!
The problem is, he doesn't deal with this so well. Boy have I had my hands full. His anxiety levels are through the roof! He has admitted, this morning, that he has even made his nose bleed on one of his 'flipouts'.
He is kicking things, hitting things, headbutting things (hence the nose bleed).
I have to say, my anxiety levels are not doing too good right now, either!
I have spoken about this before, that he isn't diagnosed. I have often questioned whether I should, and also spoken about the result of the last time I tried............ I got sent on a parenting course!
However this week, my son has asked for help. So an appointment has been made with the Dr.
Will it be successful? Who knows, I think they will just palm me off again, because of his age.
I need a break, he needs help.
Fingers crossed this time!
