Guess where I am? Hint: it’s Friday, so the moratorium is lifted. Since the last time (a week ago) S has been suspended twice from school, including today. He gets hostile and combative, as well as displaying pathological demand avoidance (PDA) . One of his meds has now been increased, to see if that helps calm him down, and we’re researching ASD pediatricians.
In spite of all that, we had a pleasant, non-eventful Shabbat meal and evening. We were glad to be together again. I’m spending the night so Avdi, who is beyond exhausted, can get to go out.
I also got to go in the sukkah again. The yard is filled with masses of native asters and goldenrod and white snakeroot. It’s actually cool and breezy for a change. It’s supposed to go down in the 40s tonight!
