by: KIM

I HAVE BEEN THROUGH ALL OF THE SAME THINGS WITH MY SON AS YOU ALL HAVE ! I TRIED TO GET HELP FOR MANY YEARS AND WAS TURNED DOWN SAYING HE WAS TO YOUNG TO BE DIGNOSED WITH ANY DISORDER ! I WENT FROM TOWN TO TOWN AND DR TO DR BEGGING FOR HELP ! I TRIED EVERY DISOPLINE THAT I COULD AND ONE MORNING I WOKE UP BY THE GRACE OF GOD AT 5 AM WITH A FEAR I CAN'T EVEN EXPIAN AND WENT INTO HIS ROOM TO FIND HE HAD TRIED TO KILL HIS SELF ! THE MOST HORRIBLE FEELING ! I FELL TO MY KNEES AND CRYED AND SAID TODAY WILL BE THEY DAY THAT SOMEONE WILL HELP ME AND GIVE ME ANSWERS ! AT THE AGE OF 6 MY SON WAS DIGNOSED WITH BIOPOLER 2 OCD ADHD AND ASHBERGERS AUTISM ! I FEEL IF I HAD GOTTEN SOMEONE TO HELP ME EARLYER ON I WOULDNT OF HAD TO PUT MY SON THROUGH ALL THAT WE WENT THROUGH TO GET HELP ! AND THEN THE JURNEY BEGAN ! MY FAMILY GAVE ME A HARD TIME ABOUT PUTTING HIM ON MEDS THEY DIDNT THINK I HAD TRYED ENOUGH TO HAVE TO RESORT TO MEDS ! BUT I DID WHAT THE DR.S TOLD ME TO AND IT IS WELL WORTH IT ! WE GOT INHOME THEROPY FOR HIM AS WELL AS US TO LEARN HOW TO COPE WITH HIM AND HIS ILLNESS AND THE ONE MISSTAKE I ALWAYS USE TO MAKE WAS TRYING TO FORCE HIM TO DO THINGS ! HERE IS SOME THINGS ID LIKE FOR YOU ALL TO TRY : A . YES I BELIVE YOUR SON IS VERY MUCH SO BIOPOLER DON'T GIVE UP ON THE SEARCH FOR HELP IT IS OUT THEIR FIND THE RIGHT DR ! B DONT TRY TO CHANGE HIM ! CHANGE YOUR SELF ! I KNOW THIS SOUNDS CRAZY BUT EXAMPLE MAKE BATH TIME THE SAME EVERY NIGHT ! THE SAME TIME ! AND IF HE HAD BROTHERS OR SISTERS LET HIM PICK IF HE WANTS TO GO FIRST OR LAST OR MIDDLE AND KEEP THAT WAY FOR EVER ! LET HIM CHOOSE WHERE HE SITS AT THE TABLE AND KEEP EVERYBODYS SEATS THE SAME ALWAYS ! SAME WAY WITH THE CAR RIDE ! SAME SEAT ! SAME BED TIME ! AND ONE LAST THING IS IF U NEED HIM TO SAY HELP U PICK UP HIS TOYS MAKE IT AS HE IS HELPING CLEAN UR MESS UP OR HIS SIBLINGS MESS UP NEVER HIS OWN MESS OR DEMANDING HIM TO DO SO ! THIS IS WHAT IVE LEARNED FROM MANY DRS AND 4YRS.THROPY ! AND I KNOW THESE THINGS SOUND LIKE UR GIVING HIM

As I read your comment I was nodding my head at everything you said. I swear you were describing my son. It's crazy how similar they are. I don't have any advice (infact, that's what I'm looking for too!) but just wanted to see if you figured out A) if he is infact bipolar and B) if you found anything that helps to keep his behavior under control. Any update you have would be very appreciated!

Are you kidding me?
by: Anonymous

Whoever wrote the comment about the sister being at fault, you are being ignorant and very insensitive to this mothers concerns. These are real people with real concerns about their children. This mother, like many of us, is desperately seeking some advice to help her child. You are not at all helping her. If you want to post ignorant comments, start a blog. Then, people who want to read you ignorant comments can do so. You should stay away from people who have worries, concerns and even feelings.
