hi to all, I'm new here. my almost 9 year old was diagnosed with bi polar disorder and anxiety disorder after a year of different medication's and different diagnosis. here we are now. she is on abilify the cycles have calmed somewhat, yet her anxiety and paranoia level has increased terribly. she's in regular ed class and is now failing as well. never has before. it's been hard, very hard i'malmost never at my job, of which i am so lucky to have. she's so uncomfortable my daugther. we are in a new school just started in september and it's not working out. i have a fourteen year old also of which has been highly ignored at least by her standards for a very long time now and is failing school. overall my anxiety level has increaesd traumatically due to all of this. i'm not on anything, but occassionally go out with some friends to relive the pressure. my little one doesn't eat in school she feels too self conscious to eat, doenst' talk to other kids she feels too uncomfortable too even when they speak to her she spends most of her day sad according to teacher, is withdrawn. anyway anyone else going through this? i wait everyday to get phone call from nurse or pyschologist that she is having an anxiety attack i try to bring her down from here at work it's a nightmare and i'm not happy. just want her regular and i can't seem to get there.
