difficult child II has been on Lithobid for well over a year now but since he's been in the IOP they're really upped his dosage. He's gained a good 20 pounds since the fall. He also is less active with the cold weather. I am concerned mainly because he's always eating and always complaining he's hungry. He'll eat three bowls of cereal and then microwave hot pockets. I think it's turning into a compulsion and I am worried. psychiatric didn't have much to say other than buy less junk and try to encourage him to exercise. But difficult child II literally gets angry and irritable if there's no "good" snacks or I tell him he can't have anything (not that he usually asks permission mind you) difficult child II"s food intake today: Breakfast: whole grain breakfast bar/milk snacks: cereal wth milk (2 bowls), pretzels wth ranch dressing, an apple, cheese crackers, 2 ff choc pudding cups lunch: 1 hot pocket, potato chips snacks: hot chocolate wth whipped cream, box of whoppers (from my Dad), pb/jelly sandwich, 1 more ff chocolate pudding cup, an apple (again), more pretzels wth ranch dinner: bourban chicken & salad snacks: granola bar, 2 cheese singles, cheddar cheese rice cakes *I am so glad I don't buy soda or juice! And believe it or not I try not to buy junk food.
