    difficult child has been very "off" this past week. For some reason, mid-afternoon, he goes from being great to off-the-charts hyper. medication increase didn't help, nothing, really, seems to calm him. He is very aware of his own instability right now.

    Frequently, during this, he will say "Mom, I want to go home."

    He's said this before when he's "off", but this time he's saying it several times a day. He's very forlorn when he says it; almost sad, and the emotion is real.

    Any thoughts on what he's asking for?

    Maybe he's feeling detatched from himself and "home" to him means getting back to himself or a better feeling or sense of normalcy for him.

    I agree that he knows something isnt right and he is trying to get back to his comfort place which to him is "home".

    aw poor baby. I'm so sorry. I read that and thought the same thing. Maybe he is dissassociating and saying that trying to come to grips with where he's at and he wants to get grounded again.?? sorry tha'Tourette's Syndrome all that i can think of.

    (((hugs))) it's soo not easy I know.
