>Well, M is finally asleep. It has been a rough day. Started with him getting a bath and writing all over the tub with a pencil. Then the mouth started. Took away all privileges. Mouth continued. Ended up being a long day and he got incredibly mouthy. He got so mad he threatened to hurt himself. So we restrained him. Then he started cussing me out. Got him calmed down. Still no privileges. He was ok for a while, then we discovered that he had a book and paper that he wasn’t supposed to have. Took them away, and he started throwing things. Tried to throw my laptop. Was successful in getting it away from him without hurting him or the laptop. Got him calmed down again. I had to run an errand so left for a bit. We let him work on a puzzle with his siblings and mom.
>Got an IEP plan started for M today. He is hoarding garbage now. cat food cans, newspaper, and other stuff. I am having problems sleeping. I can fall asleep briefly from 1 til 4:30 or 5. uggggh… Tweet #fighting4answrs
>So M has OCD. Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. Makes life tough for him. He knows it is wrong to take things that don’t belong to him. In the last two weeks we have discovered that he is hoarding garbage. Cat food cans, newspaper, cereal boxes, pop tart boxes and wrappers, soda bottles. He has been putting them in the bottom drawer of his dresser. Last year he had a compulsion about keys. He is also chewing on his thumb to the point that it is raw. Time to get his meds adjusted again. Tweet #fighting4answrs
