Ok, this is my first time here... My son is the reason I am posting this as I'm just lost... My son was diagnosed at 3yrs old with Epilepsy... We put him on meds and did all we could to help him "catch up"... The last time he went to his old neurologist he was 5 and we were told he was half his age emotionally... Ok, so we have that to go with... Then we tried school... He was put in special classes because he was behind in some areas and his behavior was unacceptable in the class... After a while he was diagnosed as ADHD and OCD with possible high functioning Autism... He's on medication for everything and had been functioning quite nicely, aside from a few outbursts and mood swings... But here lately within the last few months he has gone from being a good boy to down right despicable... Mood swings left and right, tries to force a hug when he knows you're upset about what he's doing... Says ugly and hateful things and if he doesn't sense you're upset then things just get worse... We have tried every imaginable discipline and nothing has worked... Even as I type this he's starting again with being hateful with his brother and sister... He says things that are at times just crazy... "I AM THE RULER OF THIS WORLD"... or "I WILL DO WHAT I WANT BECAUSE I CONTROL YOU"... I am going to have to take him in for some more psychological testing but I just don't know what to do anymore... He's 10 years old now and I'm afraid of what he may do in the future... Any suggestions?
