He is not diagnosed yet, but we have been told most likely Aspergers.
He needs so much attention, and I can't give him what he needs. I'm exhausted trying to do everything for him, while taking care of a 5 month old. He needs constant watch, can't calm himself down when he gets excited, hurts the baby, wakes the baby up, starts making all these wierd, loud noises, and saying wierd words over and over and over again, starts freaking out if I try to serve him a meal or take him out, wants me to play with him, but then won't let me do anything except what the story line in the book or movie was.
I'm going crazy!
I give and give and give and nothing helps this kid. I'm beside myself. He doesn't listen, does things on purpose just to irritate me and then gets his feeling hurt when I get so frustrated and have to take away a privelege. And I don't even know if what he's doing is his fault or if it's just because he is special. I have no tools with which to handle this, have no clue what I'm doing and can't even get a diagnosis because he is ahead in language and math/puzzles.
Now he's flapping and screaming and going wild. I don't even know what to do anymore. I want to lock myself in the room.
