Eeyore is telling these absolutely wild tales. After the informational meeting for kids to join track, he came home and said that the coach wants him to be the captain. Um, no. The captains are seniors, not freshman. And being a captain is something you earn by working your butt off not be going to an informational meeting. He keep insisting on crazy stuff related to his ROTC...."I'm getting a triple rank advancement." "I'm in charge of the entire freshman drill team" (not even on drill team anymore). He used to come home and brag about being the 'dance champion' at the junior high dances and that was confirmed by his teacher. When Piglet got to the junior high and was able to see what happened at the dances, she said that Eeyore did the dance off against a teacher but would spend the rest of the dance hanging out near the teacher who was acting as dj. She thought is odd that he didn't actually dance when the other kids danced. On one hand, I know his self-esteem is so in the gutter that he is telling these lies to try and make himself look better and his Aspergers is making the lies a bit more 'off' but he gets so devestated when he is called on them. And the other teens are calling him on them, they are sick of it. I don't blame them. Developmentally, he really needs to be in a self-contained program but academically he is on the edge of mainstreaming so the school would never do that. I'm not sure he is going to make it through high school without a psychiatric hospital stay, I really need his Abilify dose to get up to a therapuetic level. Maybe that will help.
