Getting him in therapy was a great start!  I think this happens when they reach a certain age and begin to think more independently.  My son has a chronic condition and this was much easier a year and half ago.  I now find him angry and irrational.  I think we are going to have to let therapy work for a little while and I think the dr. (endo) will have to help also.  Have they thought about a pump for him?
