John’s psychiatrist is putting him on Clonidine, to be taken around 8 pm. He took this as a child, but I have no memory of how it worked. Living in a household with a total of 7 people makes for some rough days stresswise. John is blessed to have a nice, large room in the finished basement with his own bathroom. He does have a short fuse, and this may sound to the extreme, but it is almost like he has something like PTSD from being bullied relentlessly in school. He is almost 25, and still brings this up. His mother will be moving in soon, and she will be able to help with him. He loves his mom so much, and I does not seem to have any recollection of the many times she left he and his sister (due to drugs). Thank God this is way in the past, and she is doing much better.
