Matt has hit a spot I never thought he would be at age 19. He has regressed completely back to a 5 year old. He went from being able to move into transition housing 2 months ago, to being in stabilization and one step away from going to jail today. They have him confined at stable, and he is getting worse by the day. He is a 6'3 five year old. He is throwing things, trying to hit people.......he is being horrible. Beyond horrible. I am so lost with this. I have no idea what to do. How could everything crumble in a week? Is being confined to stable making him go ballistic (not that there is ever an excuse for it)? If it is, I guess it is too late now, because he has been acting so awful there is no other place for him. He is acting like a wild animal, it is ludicrous. I just don't get it. It is like "game is on" for him - and he is pulling out every trick he learned in manipulation & intimidation. Yet 2 months ago, he was responsible enough for the program to consider him for transition. And no, of course they do not think it is medication related because they feel he is always in control. Umm OK. Of course, they have said that if I intervene at this point, than I will be rescuing him which is exactly what he wants. So our phone contact is minimal and always supervised, and the message from the program is that I should just let them break him of thinking he can manipulate things with his aggression. Which I agree with. It is just that something seems so wrong. And I cannot pin point it. He seems so completely different from the last year - and I just don't get it. He would have never acted this badly at his intermediate housing's program. But now that he is at stable, the challenge is on. Ideas or thoughts are appreciated. Thanks & sigh..............At least I know I am not alone. Hugs to us all.
