Welcome To The Bitchery

Teenagers can be pretty awesome... even to their parents!

Most of you know that my 16 year old son has had more than his share of troubles this past year, what with his mental health crisis a few months ago and the accompanying problems. There have been times that he has been extremely aggressive and difficult to handle. We've finally got him on a good med combination and things have smoothed out considerably since Christmas.

Which is good, because I have been either sick or damaged or both pretty much for the last 6 weeks, and so I have needed a little more help than usual. At the moment, I have a horrible headache/sore throat/fever/stuffy nose thing going on, so I have been pretty much sleeping all day.

While I was sleeping, my boy and his new girlfriend made a spaghetti dinner for everyone, made a pan of brownies, AND did the dishes and cleaned up the kitchen! I was told to stay in bed, and he brought me a bowl of pasta and a brownie :)

Pretty awesome, huh? I'm so proud of him for fighting through this and so, so happy he's starting to come out the other side. I know that there may be more problems ahead, but for now, I'm happy he's doing so much better.
