    I talked to the therapist at the psychiatric hospital where difficult child is and they say the psychiatrist diagnosed her with a mood disorder and add combined but her psychiatrist diagnosed her with Pervasive Developmental Disorder (PDD)-not otherwise specified. now I have no idea what to think. I'm just so confused will I ever really know what is going on with her? I just need a vacation from the real world for a while.

    Hugs. No advice except going thru the same thing. Mental health side diagnosis'ed Pervasive Developmental Disorder (PDD) and MD's de'ed add/odd and mood disorders.

    When they start naming every diagnosis in the book, they are really saying "We don't know." WHen she gets out, you may want to see a neuropsychologist. If you have, in my opinion, they do better diagnosing because of the intensive testing. in my opinion again, I'd tend to believe the neuropsychologist over the Psychiatrist and therapists. I had no luck with them.
