Please, what could be going on with my difficult child NOW? He just goes from one thing to another it seems. First of all, he's 13 1/2, NOT five years old...he's mauling me to death. He incessantly hugs me HARD causing me to lose my footing. Kisses me HARD over and over and over. In the evenings when we're trying to watch television, he has to lay on me, or sit on me, or whatever. Then when we are ready to go to bed (to get him to sleep we have aways gone to bed when he does....9:00ish) he beats me to OUR bed and wants to cuddle. OMGosh, it's driving me nuts. He's almost a grown man!! Now for the last week, when we get up (we arise at 4:00 am so we have some quiet time without him), we find him sleeping on the sofa. A few days ago husband asked him why and he said his room was "loud". Go figure. I just don't know what to do with this child. The only difference in medications lately is we weaned him off Abilify because it was causing so much weight gain. He does seem more manic along with this clinging stuff. Help!
