    My son has trouble sleeping at night he gets up at least 2 or 3 times a night. But when he gets up he seems to be confused and kind of really knowing where he’s at. And the next morning he doesn’t remember even getting up!
    I was wondering if this is normal or does he have other issues than just having autism?

    My 15 year old’s motto is “you have to sleep sometime, but I don’t” glad to see my family isn’t the only ones dealing with this…. he can get into trouble at 3:00 in the morning!!!! lol :)

    I have a son who is 28 years old and still getting up every night. We have tried all kinds of sleeping medications, benadryl, natural remedies etc. and nothing seems to give him, or us, a full night of rest. I will be very interested to hear what the Dr. has to offer. A full moon is truly a nightmare for us, anyone else have that problem?
