My Son is 16 years old and he has slowly been exhibiting strange behaviors over the past few months. He showered normally for his entire life up until recently. Now he showers for hours at a time, sometimes more than once in a day. He goes through body wash and soap like its nobody's business. When I brought it up to him, he acted panicky and said "I don't know. I just, I don't know. I'll buy my own body wash if its bugging you. I'm sorry."
He mutters to himself a lot more frequently, and I've caught him repeatedly walking in and out of rooms, flicking light switches on and off, and opening and closing doors. If I ask him what he's doing, he gives a short, dismissive response and he looks just so uncomfortable all the time. I know it isn't drugs, because he has to be tested for school activities and there hasn't been a problem. I can't talk to him about it because he seems to just shut down and resort to one word answers to all my questions. He's a smart, sweet kid, but something is going on and I would love to know what.
