My son was diagnosed about a year ago and seems to have all those classic symptoms. He seems more "wound" up lately.It's almost like he is intentionally trying to push it to the extreme to seek me react. I have tried to stay calm, talk it out but it is not working lately. He had been doing really well this past year but these last two weeks since school started, wow it's a whole new kid. I am sure it is the stress of school, stress of a recently family death, and change in employment that is just triggering alot of this behavior. But I am not sure how much more I can take. It seems for the past two years we have had two kids, the one we know and love and this other kid. The one that acts out of control, thrives on chaos, discourse and has no empathy for anything. I just feel tapped out and at the end of it all... I love him so much and just want the best for his future but I am not sure how to help him anymore.

I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
