Sorry...I know I'm maybe being a pain now...but after this day I feel so desparate for answers! I did post earlier about my son and the whole tantrum thing today....but this escalated to such an extend that later tonight he had moodswings...anything between crying, screaming, laughing, even hiding under the chairs like an fearfull animal! The dr only diagnosed ODD and anxiety...but after reading PLENTY on ODD....I do feel there is more going on with my son than just that. For instance...he does have respect towards other authorities.....he is the best behaved child at school...never get into fights with kids at school (emotionaly yes, but not physical).....he can be oppositional (often) but there is times that he is extremely obediant? He has almost most of the symptoms of Bipolar that I read, just not the ones assosiated with ADHD......Even on the Conners Q he got no problems.... Is there any of you that could maybe give me a better understanding of how bipolar looks "in real live"? Ok....thanx for your patience with me!
