pmerrill! We have similar instances. Especially right as we are about to walk out of the door for school, he’ll be on a mission to find something (ie baseball cards) that he hadn’t even been talking about and when he can’t find it and I tell him that “It will turn up.”, he goes into panic and desperation that his “life is over” and he will “never ever” find it. Getting out of the house is very difficult. I cringe any time people just drop by, because I generally leave the house a mess because if I pick up, I’ll just be doing it again the next day.

It’s nice to know others are experience similar things and that this might be their “normal.”
