there's 7 days in a week, so my odds of having one of them be a good day are pretty good right? today is not one of them ok, that was extremely pessimistic. Years ago, I tried bringing up the Asbergers with other psychiatrists, and reg doctor. Kept getting told his symptoms were ADD. I've never believed my son had ADD ever! Today, while going over his symptoms again, the psychiatrist says she believes he has Asberger tendencies. Because he does well on tests (??) she doesn't feel he falls directily into it however. She does feel his other symptoms fall under his ODD and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), and not bipolar. So he now has a diagnosis of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), ODD, Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD), and mild Asberger's. They changed his medications to Lexapro 20 mg, and upped his Abilify to 10 mg. She (the psychiatrist) feels very confident that the combination will help significantly with his delusional thoughts (both Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) delusions, and anger delusions). She said we should see a difference in about a week. After the last couple days, that week can't come quick enough. My difficult child admitted today he has thoughts of punching us (his dad, sister, and I) in the face and other various violent reactions, frequently. I was beyond shocked! We are a family of yellers, screamers, cussers etc, (man that makes us sound like lunatics lol, we really are actually a close fun loving family I swear ) but not a physical violent family at all. I can't figure out where that comes from??? So, I'm wanting to crawl in bed and hide under the covers (except it's too damn hot here in AZ!) Been having an anxiety attack all day. Going to break down and take a half of a Xanax and try to cope! difficult child is completing his chore list, and is on grounding for the day for being verbally abusive to me this morning, so I know I have an uphill climb to get through the day.
