When he says "I think I need some protein"

It's been six years since my son was diagnosed and one of our biggest struggles with him now is that he's a teenager and he doesn't always take care of himself. We have practically chanted to him on a daily basis that he needs a good night sleep, regular meals and his medications in order to stay on track. He doesn't always acknowledge that and we've had some disastrous consequences when he decides to stay up late or skip a meal. He's 15 now and just starting to become self-aware, so when he walks into the kitchen in the late afternoon and says "I think I need some protein", I see a glimmer of hope that he is learning self - care.
