    Another Almost-18 year old in custody of CPS

    This must be an epidemic -- my 17 year old Difficult Child with bipolar disorder had another manic episode on Monday -- this time at school, where people besides me got to experience it. He attends a non-public school for kids with emotional disability, but hadn't really been displaying the...

    I don't know how to help her

    I have a 17 year old who suffers with depression, anxiety, and ADD. She has been in therapy off and on since she was very young, 3-4 years old. As a small child, she suffered with selective mutism, enursis, encopresis, chewing on her tongue, pulling out her hair, night terrors; you name an...

    Behaviour mod (him & us), medications, professional help

    Duping some of what momtoalex had to say. My timing in finding this board (almost a year ago!) was very lucky and we have followed Pico's advice re building a village. We had already had difficult child thoroughly checked out by family physician for possible medical causes, had had a specialized...

    As if there ever were any doubt... difficult child 2 removed ALL of that with just one late dosing

    It's so easy to be lulled into a false sense of normalcy. medications are working, everyone's holding it together pretty well. You start to think, "Hey, maybe my kid doesn't really need to be on all these medications! Maybe this was all just a bad dream afterall!" On Friday, difficult child 2 didn't get his medications at...

    To let him sleep, or not?

    I've posted before about difficult child 2's tendency to sleep a lot. He went to bed at 9pm last night and he's still sleeping (it's 12:30pm now). I woke him at 9am today to give him his morning Depakote, and I have to do it again in a minute for his afternoon Seroquel dose. Part of his excessive...

    Hurry up and WORK already!

    difficult child 2 has been on Tegretol XR a week now and I am really wishing we could just fast forward another month because his behavior is not getting any better. Although his math/science teacher said he appears to be less impulsive this week. And he has been able to get his homework done more quickly...

    Does anyone here know if there are studies or data that examine the effects blood sugar levels can have on the effectiveness of psychiatric medications? difficult child 2 has had breakthrough symptoms the past week or so, and he's telling me he's usually really hungry when this happens. Happened again this afternoon...

    Anyone know about non-hyperactive ADD?

    My twelve year old daughter is in seventh grade and struggling to keep C's. She has learning disabilities and everyone says she doesn't have ADHD. I'm not sure what ADHD even entails. SHe tells me she has trouble keeping her mind on school when the teacher is talking, then needs to go for extra...

    coming out of lurkdom

    Hi, I'm coming out of long-standing lurkdom. I have always read here vigilantly and now I would like to participate. I posted here several years ago before I went into lurkdom. I think I have learned the most here than at any message board. My older difficult child (15) is a handful. I homeschooled him...

    difficult child wanted to do voluntary commit

    This morning difficult child refused to go to therapeutic school. It seemed that nothing we tried was going to work. We took away all his things and he said he did not care, then he kicked me. DS called the police. They went upstairs and spoke with him to see if they could figure out what was going on...

    Update/Consequences?

    Today my son's school called me because he threw a desk at a student and cursed at everyone. When they put him on the phone with me I told him to apologize but he kept saying no. He finally apologized but in a really mean way. I spoke with the assistant principal and told her that he would only...

I've been an adapted physical education teacher...

    Trouble on the homefront

    I am always fighting with my son. He is ADHD/ODD and I am Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), so we just don't get on well. I am on medications because it really does help my Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), but my husband is against medications for my son even though I'm the one that deals with him 23 out of 24 hours - and he's HYPER and WILD and IMPULSIVE and...

    He's buzzing again...

    difficult child 2 cannot concentrate, cannot sit still, cannot focus tonight on his homework. I asked him if he took his medications at lunch and he says he did. But he's acting like he didn't, and he shouts at me "Mom! I'm BUZZING!" (our term for hypomanic symptoms like racing thoughts). Tomorrow morning he...

    Mood stabilizers and nightmares

    I'm curious if anyone here has experienced increased dreaming and/or nightmares while on a mood stabilizer... especially Trileptal. Since going on this drug, husband periodically has some really violent dreams. He shouts in his sleep, he kicks (a few times he's gotten me good), and he once fell...
