    Hi everyone.
    I just wanted to say hello and tell you that I have already learned so much just reading all the posts and threads. I have an 11 year old son that has been miserable since kindergarten. He has been on every stimulant there is, now he is seeing a specialist. He has tried Risperdal, (nothing), Zoloft (really weird thoughts and agression) Depakote (more anger and hyperness) and now is on Seroquel at night. He slept great last night with no bed wetting.
    Looking forward to learning and possibly helping.

    Hi and welcome. You're found a great group here. There's a lot of knowledge here. If you haven't read it, do get a copy of The Explosive Child. It has helped many of us and, if nothing else, gives you a wonderful viewpoint of your child's mind.

    20 snakes????? And I thought I liked snakes. WOW

    Thank you, I will pick up a copy of that book. I have the Bipolar Child and it was very enlightening.

    Yeah, my husband is going to start breeding cornsnakes. Yuk.

    Hi Peace,
    Well, I guess if I lived in TX I'd collect snakes, too ... actually, I'd prefer armadillos.
    So sorry about your son. You've already run the gamut with-medications so you could probably give some of US advice!

    And you have ANXIETY?


    There's something to be said about the strength it takes to be a Mom of a difficult child! You are awesome - we've got 2 lizards added to the mix and I feel sorry for the crickets!!!


    I think you're going to be one of the fun ones on this forum!!!

    So, do the cats sit outside the snakes' 'home' and patiently wait for one to escape?

    Welcome Peace -

    (Ahhhhh our side is slowly gaining) the odd pet owner side. I love snakes. I don't have any because I rather like being engaged. lol

    Glad you found us - look forward to sharing with you.
