My 18 year old son started getting worse in 2021. He stopped school in March 2022. September 2022 he tried again and couldn’t do it. He’s been in a no demand environment since January. Hibernated for a couple of months, barely leaving his room. We are now seeing slow slow progress. Getting out of the house a bit for the past months. A few weeks ago he went away with us for a weekend and decided to go kayaking on his own. Now he’s starting to talk about maybe trying school again. I told him it could look like he wants it to look, part time, from home, at school, whatever he wants. Even though it is very slow, I feel like we are on an upward trend. He gets tired after an outing but his good days are more frequent. It’s been a rough journey but we’re starting to see some light at the end of the tunnel.
