We've tried nearly everything else. I'll let you know how it works. One good bit of news: he finally got a pair of glasses, a step toward getting contacts. (He was all thumbs last yr.) He ranted and raved all the way to the mall, and once they were on his face and he looked around, he said, "Wow." There was no looking back. (Sorry, couldn't resist the pun.) He wore them for a cpl hrs at home and complained of a headache. I gave him some medications, and told him to back away from the TV and take off his glasses and give it a rest. Of course, he didn't. But no headache today. And he sent his girlfriend a picture of him in his glasses and she thinks they're sexy, lol! Hey, anything to encourage him to do the right thing! I know this will help in school. He had no idea how bad his eyesight really was. All the way out of the mall, he was saying things like, "Why does my skin look like that? Hair and pores and spots. Look at those trees. Hey, look at the numbers on my phone ... " This a.m., he took a long psychiatric test at the therapist ofc. Now I can't even remember which one it was but it's very well known. We're working on a new, improved diagnosis. Or an add'tl diagnosis. He never once complained about having to take the test or go back to the therapist. (He's learning ... better late than never.) He's been behaving very well, for the most part. He knows he's living on borrowed time. We broke it to him at the therapist the other day ... told him that he is not going to the local public school this fall. He burst into tears and started negotiating. We told him it was for his own safety and also so he gets a better education. I've got piles of paperwork and scores of "favorites" marked online, everything from Boys Town to a private religious school to a military academy to an Residential Treatment Center (RTC) to a camp in Utah. I'm ready for a nap.
