Hi all, gosh where do i start?
Jordan has been unbearable. Constant screaming, yelling, bashing doors against walls. I have to lock my balcony door so he doesnt go out there and yell his tits off , with people looking up at him from the gas station in his undies playing with himself because he refuses to do a pooh!
Jordan constantly yells out "HELP ME" giving people the impression we are abusing him somewhat. He used to do this lot earlier on and now has started this behaviour up again. My hubby and i are at our wits end. His screaming starts from the time he awakens with his ERRRRR noises, until he goes to bed with a fight, sometimes 11.30 at night.
I have decided to get him on a diet from next week, cutting out Casein (dairy), Wheat and Gluten along with Yeast and sugers. Not only Jordan will benefit from this but we are all doing it. Chloe has become Jeckyl and Hyde and Nicolas is ok until something pisses him off and then he is off on a tangem.
I have a referral to Maitland Hospital Paedtric Clinic to look into meds down the track if the diet doesnt work. I believe it will help because we have done it before.
Jordans behaviour has become like a caged animal. Unpredictable and has taken on a new role pulling his sisters hair. I have to turn the computer off because he screams while using it and when i turn it off he screams because i turned it off.
Chloe is so quite at school, yet when she comes home she is unbearable, grunting and yelling at who ever is in her way.
My life is in turmoil at the moment and started my prozac again before i go mental and loose it.
I am going to organise a hair analysis for all of them and go from there.
The other day i fell down the stairs and cracked my ankle. I was standing at the top and misjudged and fell backwards. The pain is unbearable and poor hubby has taken on a lot, plus having to get to work. My ankle is feeling is a little better today, but i feel like i have been run over by a bus.
Well thats enough feeling sorry for myself. If anyone has any ideas or recipes regarding gluten free diets i would like to hear from you. Its been so long since i last did it and will be researching until my fingers are arthritic and cant type anymore.
Take care all

Hi Kiralea,

Goodness honey, what a tough time. I am so sorry to hear about Jordan and your ankle, ouch! When K.C. has his screams, lately he has been doing the ahhhhhh alot it drives Big Brother batty. Kinda like a ripple effect, the whole family is ready to yank their hair our. I hope the diet helps Jordan so that things can settle a bit. You and your hubby are doing an awesome job with the children. Sending Big Hugs your way! Take care Kiralea and Family.

Hi Kiralea,

Not sure if you'd remember me, (alex clarke), I went to High School with you. I got your blog from your schoolfriends message. I have been reading some of your blog and I think you're a fantastic writer, really honest and you've got such a positive and amazing attitude to life and the ups and downs it brings. I imagine it's not easy to keep up that bravado at times, but you have to..and you do. Have you ever considered writing a book?
Anyway, even if you don't remember me, I hope you are happy and well and will check in to see how things are going for you.
Take care sweet girl,

ps.. I know I have a photo of you somewhere, on the school bus!! Its scary to think how long ago that was!!!

Oh my gosh Kiralea, you poor dear, I feel so bad for you and all that you have been going through. I had no idea when I wrote you a letter yesterday that you've been going through such a tough time. I hope that your ankle is healing nicely and feeling better and that the diet works for sll the kiddos. I give Griffin meds to sleep and I swear I don't know how I ever got along without them because I now have my sanity. So, I can understand where you are coming from. Well my dear friend, it is time to go to bed and I shall keep in touch. Love ya bunches!
