Thank you to the psychologist who pointed out the importance of counseling. I agree 100% – were waiting to find out if it can be provided by our school OR since he’s not struggling academically right now, if we have to utilize outside counseling.
Your point about hyperfocusing on criticism and/or change, even challenges faced in everyday interactions (otherwise seen as normal to everyone else) really hits home. You articulated what I was trying to really say when I created this post. I feel like the Med has brought out so many other things, and I just don’t want them to define him.
