Facebook has taken over my life

Well, I wasn't very good at blogging before, but now I'm never here at all! Facebook has taken control of my computer...

Anyway, what's new...well, Justin is just gradually getting more and more aggressive and I had a bit of an emotional breakdown about it a few days ago. I'm better at the moment and working on a plan to try to get that under control. We are journaling everything, trying to identify triggers, searching for a behavioral therapist, and trying to get another appt with the neuro to discuss meds. We appreciate all of your prayers.

Most of Birmingham is abuzz with the possibility of snow next Monday/Tuesday. Lindsey is now nine and she has seen snow twice in her life and both were maybe half an inch. So snow is a big deal - I hate it, though. Anyway, I have to go buy carrots today just in case we need a snowman nose. :)

I like Facebook too, but I love blogging!

Just a little encouragement....my son was very aggressive when he was younger, he still can be from time to time; but it is so much better now. I don't know if it's his age, or his ability to understand things better, his therapy, or what it was that made things better; but it was something and it was good. Have you ever heard of Tomatis Therapy? I am convinced, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that this had something to do with his behavior change and his ability to adapt a little easier. Journaling is a great way to try to figure it out too. SNOW!!!! Yea!

I just started Facebook a couple of weeks ago, hence, my 2 weeks of no blogging. It's so addictive! It's incredible hooking up with people who I haven't talked to in 20 years! Plus, I love chatting with my daughter who is away at school.
