More Changes

A week ago I had to take Taylor to see a child psychologist. I took him there in order to get another opinion on what is going on with him. I also took him there to see if there is something more going on with him mentally. After talking with the doctor for almost an hour, we left with a diagnosis of Anxiety caused by his environment. I wasn't surprised by the diagnosis considering what has been going on the last few years. Even though he's only 8 years old, he has been put through the ringer mentally & emotionally. I am just glad that he wasn't diagnosed with depression or bipolar.

We also left with a prescription for an anti-anxiety/anti-depressant for him. He just took his first dose tonight. Now I am praying that they will help him sleep easier, help mellow him out a little bit, help him remain calmer while at school & over all help with this mental well-being. He is such a smart child with a bright future ahead of him. I don't want something like this to get in the way of him reaching his full potential. Thankfully his anxiety is not debilitating or anything like that. He is a very out-going young man & I am thankful for that.

Please join me in praying for my son as he adjusts to the new medication. Please pray that he will be able to handle all of the changes that will occur within him during this time. Please pray that I will be able to make this transition time easy & low stress for him. I know that I have to remain his mom & be in charge. But I also don't want to cause anymore anxiety for him while he adjusts.
