Well as Sully said, "Brace for impact." My wife has been , by her own admission, slipping a little over the past few days. She started making her little comments & personal jabs at me a few days ago, and has started becoming agitated easy. Now today we have to take my son to his doctor, he woke up with a fever & throwing up about 5 a.m.. That is alone is usually enough to get her on edge, but now going to the doc 60 miles away won''t help either. Like I have told you guys before, something about making that trip usually sets her off and we end up fighting all the way home. Needless to say I am dreading it. I'm trying to stay positive about things, but past behaviour makes me think otherwise. I'm hoping for a good weekend, but doing this today makes me have my doubts. She goes to therapy monday, not sure if she will allow me to go this time or not, she hasn't said either way.

Hoping for the best, but trying to be prepared for the worst.

Good Luck. Is there anything she can take before the trip to maybe sedate her???

Is your wife on the correct medication? I was extremely hostile when I was on Tergretol and Risperdal. I was also depressed at that time. Then I changed my medication to Amisulpride, Haldol, Lexapro and Tegretol. I am less depressed and less angry with people around me. Why don't you speak to your wife's psychiatrist and see if her medication needs to be changed?

Whew! Suprisingly everything went well yesterday. I was very nervous in the way home, that is usually when everything erupts. To answer some of your questions, she does have an anxiety med (clonzapam I think) but she doesn't like to take it because it makes her like a zombie & she can barely stay awake. The risperdol actually is helping things since they increased it a few weeks ago. She is nowhere near as angry & hostile as she was a month or so ago.

Hoping things stay calm & quiet, hope everyone has a good weekend

Thanks everyone,

We found out what we (she actually) suspeted. He has an ear infection in both ears, so is on antibiotics for ten days. We were just pleased at the way he acted at the docs. With him having autism, doctor visits are usually pretty stressful. He hates to have his ears messed with & I usually have to bear hug him with one arm & hold his head with the other, while crossing my legs over his so he can't kick. He didn't do any of that this time & was completely cooperative. Maybe that's why the trip went well, no real stress build up.

Thanks again;
