So my difficult child's 'official' diagnosis is now 'Bipolar not otherwise specified'. Well, the ADHD/ODD is still on there too I think, but instead of 'mood disorder not otherwise specified' we've made the leap to BiPolar (BP). I think original psychiatrist, therapist and myself have been dancing around it for the last two years so I guess on some level I feel almost, maybe... relief? Although deep, deep down I feel like 'schizoaffective disorder' really fits him best, but he's too young and I don't think anyone is going to touch that with a 10 ft. pole around here until he's much older. So anyway, he'll start a trial of lithium on Monday. It's probably the last four days of peace and happiness speaking here, but I'm actually feeling optimistic right now.
