Lots of life changes and Self Harming
In the last month we have had 2 deaths in the family, my father-in-law was in the hospital, and my husband lost his job after 28 years with the company.
School starts on Tuesday. We now have a new Principal. I received an email that his aide moved, so he will be getting a new one. To top it all off, I got a call the other night that our Vice-Principal suddenly retired and there is a new one.
My poor kid is so anxious and stressed out. He is picking at his skin, pulling out teeth, chewing on the inside of his mouth. I'm forever cleaning up some kind of bloody mess.
I feel like I'm throwing him to the wolves. There is no consistency from last school year.
I have brought him to the school and was able to show him where his classrooms are. We met the new Principal and Vice-Principal. He won't be able to meet his new aide until I hand him off to her.
I'm a nervous wreck. Last year was awful. My record is 5 times at school in one day.
Just please say a prayer that it's better this year. Any advice would be appreciated too!
