I can breathe!
My boy is doing fantastic. Haven't had a rage in a long time. We slowly stopped the resperidal and started him on Abilify and he has been on it for 3 weeks. No more rages or kicking or punching walls - although still receiving verbal outburst. His probation is done. Just trying to get him to do lab works ordered from is endocrinologist for his Type 1 diabetes and the remainder test for the medicine he takes. He is very reluctant to get this test and they are over 6 months due. He also needs a full eye exam because of his diabetes but tying to get him to do it is a battle., For his job in the summer he needs to get criminal and federal checks done and to get federal clearances which requires fingerprints and oh boy is this expensive especially being on a budget .. $16 for the criminal and child abuse clearance and $27 for federal - fingerprints. All have to be done in the next 4 weeks. Plus I need to pay the same amount because of my type of employment. How is my asd boy doing now -- growing and maturing,, taking a girl to the snow ball dance. I am really proud of him.Yes, he has a girlfriend. He continues to excel in school - this being his last year. Still hard to believe he graduates in June. He wants to go to college but wants to take a year off and work to save money. The Navy initially wanted him to study criminology or nuclear engineering only to find out from the recruiters this year they will not accept him due to his diagnosis of Autism and Type 1 Diabetes - that sucks - as he had his dreams on entering that branch of service. I am very proud where he has come and the hard work that he has done to get to this point. Don't get me wrong -- everyday is still a struggle from getting up and ready for school to finishing the day with a shower. One step at a time... I keep trying to tell him to get his blog back but the interest is not there. He is a true Gamer on his PS3 but he enjoys it. I hope to do another update and not let months/years go by before another one is done.
