Just curious about what I'm seeing in difficult child 2 today. For anyone who read my latter post in the thread about ripping the classmate's jacket... difficult child 2 had a lot of energy after school today. He was really happy and upbeat. While waiting to pick up difficult child 1 in front of school, he asked to get out of the car to walk around. So I let him wander around on the grassy area next to the sidewalk where I was parked. He walked all around the area briskly, walked quickly along the low retaining wall trying to balance himself, then back again, for about 15 minutes. (For a while it was almost like he was pacing). Found a stick and proceeded to pick all the bark off it. Then he informed me that a classmate lived down the street. It's an Aspie he gets along with pretty well and so I asked him if he'd like to invite him over one day, to which he replies that he was actually thinking about the OTHER boy, the one whose jacket he ripped on Friday. This is a complete 180 degree flip in the way he has felt about this kid for years. He says it's because of my pointing out similarities this weekend between him and this boy. But now I'm wondering if this enthusiasm coupled with his energy all afternoon (lots of up and down during homework time, silliness, squealing, making noise for its own sake, crawling under the table, some goal driven activity) is hypomania? He got no stimulant today. He did have 5mg of Focalin yesterday twice (over 8 hours) because he had a project to work on and I wanted to see if it would help. It did help him focus better. But now I wonder if today's somewhat exaggerated behaviors are the after-effects of having had some stimulant yesterday? Last night at the sleep study center, he was very subdued and quiet. Tired. Watched TV and it was very hard to get him to respond to questions. He had to be asked two and three times to get an answer (I usually had to repeat the tech's questions to him twice). This morning he was really tired and fell asleep with his head on the table when we got home before school started. He said he took his afternoon Seroquel XR, but it was about 90 minutes late. I'm just trying to sort out what I'm seeing in him. I was just so shocked about his interest in having the "jacket boy" over. husband says he thinks it's a good sign, but it's so out of the blue that I'm having trouble accepting it as real. Like I said before, I'm not sure I trust what difficult child 2 is saying about this.
