Are they the ones with the choline in it? My nephew said he felt better that same day but maybe he was just having one his better days anyway. It probably takes a little while to really build up.View Thread
My nephew has been doing so much better at school behavior-wise since I started him on Gummy Vitamins with Choline, however he has started skipping class or walking out of class and today the school called and wanted me to come get him. His teacher says it's like he's sabotaging himself, because he thinks he can't keep the good behavior up. I thought praising him for his improved behavior would help keep it up, but maybe it's putting too much pressure on him, he says he's tired of hearing about how much better he's doing. When he skips, of course he gets punishments from his teacher and then he flies into a rage and curses out anyone in his path. Then when he's calmed down he feels awful and is extra sweet. I just am not sure what to do for him, He needs to get back to full days, but he can't do that is he can't be trusted to show up for two more afternoon classes. He says he's bored, but he won't read, he's an excellent drawer but he won't draw.View Thread
I just happened to stumble on this topic a couple of months ago. I went out and bought my 17-year-old nephew the chewables with choline. He's always had alot of behavioral problems but it was really getting bad, I was getting phone calls from the school about 2-3 times a week telling me he was being suspended or asking me to come pick him up and take him home because he was out of control, partly because the school had made alot of changes last year and then one of his friends killed himself and my nephew was having a lot of trouble handling it.
Anyway his last suspension had been on Dec 8th 2010. Shortly after that I finally managed to convince him to start taking the chewables with choline and folic acid. After that I stopped getting the phone calls and when I went in to talk to the staff two months later they said he still had little meltdowns here and there but overall his behavior had improved tremendously and they could see he was working hard to change his attitude.
That same day he got in trouble again and then again a couple of days later. I though 'oh here we go again" but I finally thought to ask him if he was still taking his vitamins, he said no he ran out of them at home. I explained that he didn't have to take the adult chewable his dad got him but could take the kids ones that i got him that are at my house, but the most important thing was that whatever he took had the choline in it. He had run out just before the day of the meeting. No problems the next couple of days.
Today he didn't have school but was going nuts over everything, saying his life was going to go nowhere, I asked him if he took his vitamin that day, he said no. I said, "Tell me honestly do you feel any calmer when you take the vitamins". He said "Yes, I feel MUCH calmer" and he seems much more optimistic.
So it looks like so far we've finally found something that even he thinks works. Hope it continues.View Thread
Got a high-functioning autistic nephew who will turn 18 soon, he's determined to get a tattoo I've told him it could be harder for him to get a job with one, that he changes his mind so often he'll probably regret it almost as soon as he gets it, nothing works, any suggestionsView Thread
He changes his mind all the the time about how many and the location of them. Right at this moment he wants this nasty demon-looking thing all over his hand. Next time I see him, I'm going to try suggesting a temporary tattoos, that way if he doesn't like it or changes his mind, he's not stuck with it.View Thread
My nephew will be turning 18 in March and even though he will probably continue to live with his dad, I wanted to know what you thought of me trying to get guardianship of him, so that I can make sure he continues councilling, I am much more involved in getting him help than his dad. I'm really concerned about what will happen to him then.View Thread
One of my nephew's friends committed suicide last Wednesday and I think he's handling it pretty well all things considered. He talks about him and cries about him. I let him talk and cry and try to comfort him, He has Asperger's, I don't think they were close at all but I guess that doesn't matter to him. I'm not sure what else to do or how to talk to him, Any suggestions?View Thread
