I have tears in my eyes as I read all this information. For the past 7 years it has been a long hard road begging people to listen to me and get my son help. My son is almost 10 now and since he was 2 1/2 I noticed that he didn't like to wear clothes. He had rages if we tried to put anything on him that actually fit him. Getting him ready in the morning for school is a huge battle he is normally late and I struggle to get to work on time. He cuts everything any elastic, doesn't wear socks or underwear anything tight.Can't brush his teeth or hair with out being highly distressed.
He has been diagnosed with OCD and bipolar. But now I have a name for the other behavior. I feel as his mother who would move mountains that I actually have the word to start the fight for my son.It takes sometimes the closest to the person having issues to be their voice and make things happen.
