Pretty non-specific title, I know. I have 3 difficult children - the oldest is almost 13 and has Tourette Syndrome, ADHD and anxiety. He's on no medications and has started to level out. We are over the hill I think. Middle difficult child is my only girl and the source of this post. She was diagnosed with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and ODD at 5 years old and has been progressively symptomatic since then (though this last school year was pretty good). She goes 120 mph all day every day. She talks nonstop and sometimes it seems like she has the fact that people around here might be doing other things completely tuned out. She is the proverbial energizer bunny. difficult child#3 is only 10 1/2 months younger than difficult child#2 and has a flash temper, but we have just figured out that his frustration level is so much higher than everyone else's because he deals with his sister more closely and more often than us on a daily basis. He has his own little oddities, but generally he is pretty typical boy. difficult child#2 spent the weekend with my parents and my mother and I talked this evening. SHe was genuinely concerned about her. SHe said that there wasn't a moment when she wasn't talking or moving. It was manic, she thought. Mom is a former pedi nurse, so she has a little background. When difficult child was diagnosed at age 5 the doctor talked ablut Zoloft, but we were hesiant to medicate her at that age. Now, i am just not sure. Her ODD outbursts are getting really difficult and I don't want to punish her for things she can't control, but sometimes I think I am going to explode!! Anyone have any thoughts?
