hello everyone, I'm not sure how all of this works. but i really could use this site. and i am interested. I have a difficult child 1 that was recently diagnosed with a mood disorder, with the onset of bipolar, conduct defiance disorder and ADHD. he is on medications and doing better, but there are some days that i feel like i am going to fall apart. i have 3 boys, my oldest is 13 easy child, and is having a hard time having two little brothers that have issues as he likes to call it. difficult child 1 and difficult child 2 like to blame him for all of and anything they are upset about. difficult child 2 has severe ADHD, and is on medications, that the dr's will be changing soon. then i have a little 3 year old that is the light of the whole family, she is sometimes frightened by difficult child 1 behavior. sometimes it gets very overwhelming thinking of all the appointment. and money on copays that we are spending. we have enough money but it is very tight. difficult child 1 is going to be starting 7th grade soon, and i will be having to navigate the whole school again, trying to make sure they don't use his disorders against him. he is very gifted and can thrive very nicely in the right situation at school. it will be interesting to say the least. well i have to go play a game with difficult child 2 now. hopefully i did this forum thing right.
