I was straightening a little in difficult child's room this evening and figured out something else he had used for cutting. I really should have foreseen this and figured it out before, it seems so obvious now. He was taking the "blade" out of any pencil sharpener he could get a hold of. Another thing- I am finding empty or near-empty cans of things like "gooh b gone" (or something like that), and other stuff. I can't figure out if he was sniffing it ( he swears he was not) or if he was using it for a flammable- like spraying a can and holding a match to the fumes. Ideas? It would sure explain a lot if he was really getting high instead of cycling. I know he was getting compulsive about self-medicating and illegal/street drugs were right around the corner, but he always tested negative on many drug tests that supposedly checked for everything. He was smoking cigs and trying to control moods by soda/caffeine/sugar. He was talking a lot about medications not working.
