That's the closest thing I can find to what I'm dealing with, in my DS. He is 11. Did not meet enough criteria for Asperger's diagnosis but has a lot of those symptoms. Has ADHD and a very high IQ. Had one of those "meltdown" days today. I'm not cut out for this. This is the third time in as many months that I have outright told him that if he HATES it here so much, to go and live with his dad. I don't put that out there lightly. I'm at wit's end with no local support. People seem to understand what I'm going through, and say they understand, but he is never the way he is at home when he's at school or other places. At home, he is the most mean, cruel, extremely moody, extremely reactive, volatile, vindictive ... I just don't think I am meant to raise this child! I'm going to have to write this in bits and pieces. I keep breaking down. His grades have been steadily falling since 4th grade. He is in 6th now and getting some C's and D's and outright refusing to do anything remotely related to writing, that requires writing more than a couple of words on a line. Spelling and vocab are fine. He just WON'T WRITE.
