Hi Fineline, Your son has a lot of positives. He has you (who love him dearly otherwise you wouldn't be on this forum), he has friends and he enjoys school. He is also willing to see his psychologist. I'm wondering, would it be possible for one of his school mates to drop by on their way to school? This might encourage your son to get up and ready. Possibly he is not lazy (aside from normal adolescent lethargy) but his sluggishness and difficulties with motivation could be the depression or medication side effects (?) You mentioned that your son became "aggressive'....was this physical or verbal? Either way, make sure you are safe. The fact that your son was "perfectly fine" 2 hours later could be an indication that his medication effects vary at different times. Maybe he needs to go to school a bit later? You are doing an amazing job but look after YOU too.
