So over the summer we caught difficult child sneaking out and he admitted to smoking pot. Got a drug test, and he was clean. Really confused us, but we did not know what to think. Saturday he came home with a pipe, said he ran into D on a bike ride and D gave it to him and told him to take it home so he would not get into trouble. We talked about how much trouble difficult child would get into if he was caught with it, and I threw it away. It looked like he had been smoking cigarette tobacco out of it. Told psychiatrist, called the wrap services people and therapist. difficult child saw psychiatrist yesterday, asked him if he had been smoking and he said yes but he quit. A few minutes later he pulls a film container out of his pocket and says he "found" it at school. It was full of tobacco that had been taken out of cigarettes. psychiatrist and I went over how he should have given it to the school and how much trouble he would get into if he got caught with that. Last night he and his sister saw their dad, first time in about a month as he has been in jail. I figured I would see some back lash from that. easy child did not sleep much last night, and has been asleep since about 5pm tonight or so, and difficult child? Well, he got written up at school, then called me crying, said he did not feel well and had thrown up. I think it was anxiety from the night before, but either way he needed to come home so I picked him up. He saw therapist today. After we got home he wanted to have his friend come over and I said no, you came home from school no friend. He said he was going out on the trampoline. Just struck me as odd, and I went out to check. He was not on the trampoline, he was behind the shed smoking cigarette tobacco out of a pipe like device!! I think what concerns me the most? Is that he is trying to self medicate. That is so so dangerous for him, and it scares the tar out of me. So I will call psychiatrist tomorrow, I am not sure what to do about it. I am going to quit smoking myself, that will at least limit his access, but what else to do? We raised his abilify yesterday, I think it will take a few more days to see any result from that. I am just concerned as this does not bode well for the future. I do not want my son to follow in his dad's footsteps.
