For as much as he can annoy, irritate and bother, he is truly a neat, caring and loving boy. You can always tell that it is impulsive and unintentional behavior. Thankfully for now, the Lithium and other medication cocktail he is on is allowing him to have some VERY successful days! It is a blessing not only to us, but to him that he can feel a sense of pride in his behavior. I love that he seems calm and happy, you can see it in his eyes. He had a wonderful time playing with Maizie and her family Saturday, he was kind, calm and appropriate. he was great with the dog and even held their "therapy" guinea pigs without being agressive or frustrated. That NEVER could've happened 3 months ago. We have made so much progress, I have to keep everything in perspective, it's hard when you live it daily.
Thank God for families that understand.
