To compound the issue, he wakes frequently, and he comes and sleeps with me and I toss and turn all night and get very little sleep.
The later he goes to bed the earlier he wakes up....I'm working on 4hrs sleep from last night.
Also his moods are incredibly unpredictable, he's still on the ritalin and respirdol, I'm still waiting for an appt with the med specialist. I've seen him start the day screaming and crying from his first foot on the floor, temper tantrums for no reason, to calm for a few hours, then sad for an hour, then pinging off the ceiling.
Trying to work around this mood fluctuation is dam near impossible, and I never know what's going to set him off or what he's thinking.
For some reason he seems to have no sense of temperature, he's always hot and I went in the bathroom the other day for a minute and he took off outside in near freezing weather in just sweat pants, no shirt, socks or shoes and was out in the back yard kicking around a soccer ball. The very same day he managed to sneak out...I've got the alarm set now so if he takes off the alarm will go off....and he went to our neighbours house and told him he was hungry??????? I had been trying to get him to eat something for an hour. The guy cooked him some hot dogs.
I was running up and down the street bawling my guts out when Glen stuck his head out the door and said he was at his house. Thank God he's a great neighbour and likes Jamie. He asked if I wanted him to look after him for an hour til hubby came home to give me a break. I thanked him and they played in our yard with his dog and a frisbee.
I've got him 24/7...365...I just can't take it any more. I need a day off so bad, but there is no where for him to go.
Anyway if you got this far you are a saint.
