The past 10 days have been quite tough. Chloe started another new medication and within a few day the agitation and aggression began. Chloe occasionally hits herself in the head when upset, but rarely hits other people.
She started hitting me and did hit her older sister a few times. During one incident she pushed me. I was like this is not worth it. I would rather her be hyper than hateful. So I tried to call the Dr, but got no call back. I tapered her off of it myself. The last 2 days she has been great? So until her MRI’s are done and her blood draw for genetic testing is back….no more new meds.
So what am I doing until then? I am replacing as much food as possible with gluten free versions. I notice way less stomach issues. Offering more fruit for snacks instead of starchy foods. I am trying to offer her more vegetables. It just depends on the day if she will eat them. I ordered a cookbook that is full of gluten and dairy free recipes. I hope I can introduce new foods as well.
Just continuing to figure things out a little at a time. Meds may not be Chloe’s answer. So I continue to research for more natural alternatives. She is in OT therapy right now. All of her therapies are going great! We are blessed with good people.
I hope all of you are well. Thanks for stopping by today. Welcome to my new followers 😁
