Autistic son refuses to sleep in a bed?

Asked: Autistic son refuses to sleep in a bed?

Our ASD (autism spectrum disorder) son was transitioned into a toddler bed at 15 months. He is now nearly 3 but still sleeps EVERY single night in the floor. He has done this since we got rid of the crib, always sleeping on the floor. People tell us, "oh he must fall asleep while playing." But this is not the case, most of the time he isn't around any toys at all. He'll usually be sprawled across the floor with his blankets. We've tried everything. We'll sometimes go in at 3 or 4 in the morning and put him back in bed but when we wake up he'll be out of the bed again. What should we do? Should I give up this battle?

Do you think I’m bipolar or borderline personality disorder?

Asked: Do you think I’m bipolar or borderline personality disorder?

I'm 15 if that helps. I can switch to extreme happiness were I'm bouncing off the walls with happiness to major sad/depression in about 3 seconds. When I say bouncing off walls happiness I mean like it got to the point were my school thought I was taking drugs because of how hyper I get (they've accused me of taking drugs about 7 different times this year), I feel as though I'm on top of the world and nothing can bring me down, like I'm on cloud 9, like I can conqur anything. Then when I say major depression I mean major. I don't wanna do anything, I'm just tired, sad, crying (I cry atleast once EVERY day!) self harming (I've cut my arm a lot, right now I have 17 cuts on it all from 2 days), I feel like I can't accomplish anything, suicidal, attempted suicide twice, always thinking about it, just wanna sleep, like I'm the worst person in the world, like I don't deserve nothing, like everyone hates me, I'm the most unimportant person in the world and need to die because I'm taking up other peoples air. Then I can get angry, for nothing or oevr the stupidest things like someone won't turn on my bedroom light or tv on for me, I will start screaming, plulling out hair, breaking things, crying anger tears, stuff like that. I have major fears of abandonment. I'm afraid that one day I will get abandoned. I never have any luck in the two relationships I've been in, I like the person but once we start to date I imediatly get turnned off and start to argue with them, and feel as though I can't cope and break up with them within a week. Its annoying.
Because I'm only 15 I'm a virgin so I can't really say anything about that symptom. I've smoked ciggarettes in my life before and I've takenn drugs before (only once) and I've taken alcohol a lot before too!
These emotion things switch from one to the other within a few hours to two days or so!!! So do you think I may be bipolar or borderline personality dissorder? If I go to doctor what do they do to check if I am anyof these?Thx

I have trouble being woken up?

Asked: I have trouble being woken up?

Ok so school has started up again so early morning wake ups are a must. The problem is alarms and people have trouble waking me up. My mom usually wakes me up at 6am for school but EVERY time i wake up she says something like "i shouldn't have to wake you up over and over to get you out of bed". The thing is, that was the first time i woke up that morning, i have no memory of being woken up multiple time before hand. Now today, my mother is out of town, so i have to rely onmy phones alarm clock to get to school. So i set the alarm for 6am and went to bed. The next morning (today) i woke up to the sun shining through the window and i couldn't fine my phone! It wasn't sitting on my night stand anymore. After searching some more, i found it, UNDER MY PILLOW!? So now my phone alarm can't even wake me up. I somehow while sleeping, grabbed my phone and stuffed it under the pillow to keep quiet, how is this possible?!So now everyone is going to be pissed at me for "skipping school" when it wasn't even my fault. My mother doesn't believe i have no memory of being woken up several times a morning, and nobody is going to believe that my phone alarm failed me. I have asked many times for an actual alarm clock but they just say "just use your phone". Its pissing me off! Do i have some sort of sleeping disorder or something?

What Is Wrong With Me?

Karen Asked: What Is Wrong With Me?

I am 16 and a female and I have felt really strange this past year.I have been previously diagnosed with OCD and I stayed on the medication and then I stopped taking it because I felt fine.I am a straight A student and am often stressed and anxious but I see that as normal.I have had thoughts of suicide multiple times.I hate being around people and view almost everyone as annoying and a waste of my time.Everything I do has to be perfect and if it is not,I throw a fit.I am very sensitive to people's reprimands toward me.I can't take even the smallest criticism.My mood switches often.There are days where I feel that I am superior and I talk real fast and my mind races,almost to the point where I can't think at all,and I am just unusually happy.But out of a year,most of the months I am very depressed, lonely, and suicidal.Then my mood will change back to happiness for a short period.I am easily irritated.I have very low self esteem most of the time.I don't enjoy living some days. Sometimes I just cry,even when I am not sad.Sometimes,I feel that I need to be self destructive and hate myself because I feel like I have not risen to my standards.I am very fatigued almost everyday.I suffer excruciating back pain and headaches everyday.I get very few hours of sleep a day.Sometimes I just feel that I don't understand myself or what I'm thinking.My thinking patterns are very disorganized.I am always stressed and anxious and find things to be worried about.I have difficulty relating to others and communicating with others.I like working by myself in any situation.I have lost 50lbs within a few months and I have not dieted or exercised.Sometimes I have very violent thoughts about others.Sometimes I feel that I deserve violent acts to be performed on me because I have done something wrong.The strangest thing is that I feel that there is another person inside of me.Almost like an alter ego.

I almost refuse to claim any disorder because it is possible that I am just going through a phase.A long phase–but a phase.I also don't want to be one of those people who claim to have EVERY disorder in the book like some of the kids at my school.I just want an idea of what could be going on with me.

Does anyone have an idea?

does he have a personality disorder? what made him immediately turn on me and never speak to me agai

nicole Asked: does he have a personality disorder? what made him immediately turn on me and never speak to me agai

When we were friends, he was so friendly and nice. Definitely one of the friendliest guys i had started to get to know. We started talking over the summer on facebook. Then we moved into college as freshmen (he lives across the hall from me) and we became REALLY REALLY great friends.

Then as we got closer we started "dating". Although he never asked me out on an official date. He kissed me first, but after like a week and a half of "seeing eachother" everyday and night and falling asleep together, he wasnt as sweet anymore. He was withdrawing emotionally from me, not as caring, and he was very moody with an attitude. I didnt know what was going on. He stopped seeing me and talking to me during the day. He would then only talk to me at night. When he messaged me on facebook one night, I told him he needed to tell me what he wants. He then said he did have feelings for me. But when i said we never talk about this stuff, he made all these excuses why he wasnt sure yet. They were rude excuses too. Saying i wasnt genuinely a "nice person" and that he wanted to have feelings for a genuine "nice girl", so he wasnt sure yet. Then saying we had nothing in common, when we had everything in common! Then he said he was afraid i didnt accept him for who he was or the things he enjoys (when he clearly wasnt accepting me!) he said i was the first one to ever like him back like that….i asked him why he kissed me, and he was like "cuz i wanted to see if i did have feelings for you. but even after i still wasnt sure, and i kept on trying to figure out if i did. i dont know why i didnt tell you before, i was just afraid to i guess"

he was making it seem like he didnt like me, so i told him what we did was a mistake. he said "we can still be really good friends nicole. Ive been friends with girls ive liked my entire life. its no news to me. its only gonna be bad if you think it will be. if so what are you gonna do about it"

then he never talks to me again. ever. is incredibly rude when i text him how he is or try to invite him to things. He goes and sleeps over my best friend Caroline's dorm 10 days after we ended. Then he sees me at a group hangout and doesnt acknowledge me nor say a word to me. He blocks me on facebook, goes after Caroline's friend Maddie who is this dumb blonde cheerleader girl that treated him like crap and was very mean. (but she rejects him cuz he asks her to hang out "alone" without Caroline, and she thought he was a creep), he also got his best friend to break into my dorm room at 5am, said awful things about me to Caroline and Maddie about how im psycho and probably "follow him". BUT when he would see me in the elevator or something, he would just stare at me. Not a hateful stare. But a stare like they like you……so it was weird. He WOULDNT KEEP HIS EYES OFF ME!

Then we came back in january. I get a new roommate Maya. He hits on her in front of me and passes notecards through her door about how they have been noticing eachother (Maya started it). I think he told her he just "messed around" with me, and on the card he wrote "oh…..MAYA!!!!!" He then always bangs on his door REALLY loudly over and over and yells her name a lot. He then also becomes friends with my best friends. So much so that my best friends stop talking to me. (not like they hate me, its just they hang with Sean over me) Then when i saw sean in the elevator like a month ago, he was with his friends and he went "ugh!" with a very disgusted face when he saw me. then he just snickered.

WHAT THE HELL IS HIS DEAL?! why does he do all these hateful things to me? he used to be my best friend here!

if he DOES have feelings for me, he should just admit it. But before when he had the chance to be with me, he just cut me out of his life. But if he is "not into me", then why does he do these things to me?

hes not really a womanizer. it seems like it, but thats not the issue. its deeper than that. i just dont know why his personality would change so quickly. he used to be like OBSESSED with me! knew every little thing about me, stalked the hell out of me on facebook and liked EVERY single status like 10 seconds after i posted. we would talk for hours. he really liked me before. i dont know what happened

and he only does these mean things to ME. no one else. no other girl…..

dont just say hes a player. its deeper than that. he truly has some sort of issue. if he was a player, he would have forgotten about me instantly. he doesnt treat other girls like this. just me. for some reason he has this huge problem with me and i dont know what it is. His behavior changed literally like a week into dating me. and he never went back to his original state…

Why does my new bed cause me to dream EVERY night?

jacob g Asked: Why does my new bed cause me to dream EVERY night?

Ever since I switched from a crappy twin mattress to a fancy queen size mattress I have had dreams every single night without fail except for the night I slept in a hotel…

The dreams are very vivid and sometimes long. Usually 2-3 memorable dreams a night. I know that I have sleep apnea so perhaps it has to do with that? I'm not sure. Just want to make sure it isn't unhealthy or something. Thanks for any answers in advance… praise Bill
