I have to say I had a wonderful appointment for the oldest for telepsych today (a bit early in the morning for me, I am so not a morning person). We've established a medication\ behavioral plan of action. I have to admit too, hearing a psychiatric from sick kids tell me I'm doing a great job was uplifting to the point where I was almost euphoric. I really am not that bad of a parent after all (I have issues with self blame and guilt - thinking it's all my fault) He's going to be put on adderall rx (10mg to start) I am amazed we got this far, oh and I shared this website with the psychiatric. He was impressed with "us" so to speak. He thought it was great that we are all here to support and advocate for each other. He liked the idea of this site. I think it might end up in his "parents need to educate themselves" tools. I am relieved, I wasn't sure about medication at first but I'm feeling confident and at ease. Fears are dissolved and I really like this psychiatric doctor. He impresses me. My first impression of him in March 2010 was inaccurate (I can admit being wrong) and he really is a great advocate not only for the children he treats but for the parents as well. I like his "knowledge is power" frame of mind - it really parallels my own frame of mind. So, ladies and gents, pat yourselves on the back because today you all got complimented by a Sick Kids (T.O. Ontario) doctor!
