Good morning! I'm overwelmed and confused. My difficult child has an adhd diagnosis. but it's definetly more than that. I'm waiting to get him in to see neuropsychologist.(he's on a waiting list) Been doing alot of research. difficult child has symptoms of every mental illness and disorder out there. the has aspie traits (many) and seems to have alot of bipolar symptoms (mania). not really depression lasting more than a few hours. He isn't violent or explosive though. (except with- little brother and if he's provocted sp ). and according to him everything is "fine" so he's not much help. I would really love feeback from parents of bipolar children (esp with- adhd) or anyone with half a clue. help me understand the cycling thing and symptoms in children. is there triggers that send them into mania? i know every kid is different and some can have a little of this and a little of that. I don't really trust the diagnosis of children, it seems to be so subjective. Thank you..thank you!
