I posted recently about my son recently going downhill again. (Grades plummeted, arrested for larceny etc) We've also had other issues going on but I never thought they were related, not I'm not so sure. Tell me what you think... For several weeks he is constantly in the bathroom. I mean, constantly. My husband and I honestly thought he was well...um... how do I put it...pleasuring himself? (too much information, but that's why we didn't say anything to him about it at first!) Then he started going through TONS of toilet paper, like a new roll goes on a 6am before he leaves for the school bus and he is getting a new one before bed that evening! So, we took him to the doctor who thought he must be constipated and treated him for it. Then, last week, one of our other boys came to me and said he saw blood in the toilet after difficult child had gotten up. We asked difficult child about it and he said it had been going on a couple weeks. (!!) We went back to the doctor who ran a stool sample. I just got the results and there was NO blood in his stool sample and no bacteria grew either. Which leaves me scratching my head. difficult child had an incident a year or 2 back where he was cutting himself. Do you think he could be doing this again only where we can't see. I've seen him shirtless and in shorts and there's no sign of it. He is nearly 16, I don't feel comfortable telling him we need to check him for cutting in areas we can't readily see. What do you think? What would you do?
