Just typing this out and reading it back to myself, it sounds like we have some cracking down to do behaviorally.

.... And the situation with his dad and I was so emotionally ugly I'm afraid to let a counselor in on it. His dad has been home for 6 months now and everything is calm and back to how it was
I also think that would be a disaster.

And it seems you have a lot more going on in your home than just this. Maybe separate issues, maybe not. Kids absorb much more than we think they do or like to believe and they are often not part of the working out and resolving things. I also noticed you are a 'ministry wife'. Be careful that that you don't let that status be part of what keeps you from getting help.

You also mentioned that your son had an illness. That is another reason to start at the pediatricians office. My son's autoimmune condition was triggered by an illness. Also, if autism is a possibility, they can help you find resources to get help.

Just rereading and something else occurred to me....your son isn't taking Singular by any chance is he? It can really mess up some kids...anxiety, night terrors, etc....I know from personal experience
