    I hope this is in the right place...:redface: This is my first post. Yeah!!! I found this site while going over my daughters fifth evaluation. She's 12 yr old. She has been diagnosis bi-polar not otherwise specified for four years. She is also diagnosis Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD),ppd not otherwise specified,Sensory Integration Disorder (SID)(sensory integration dysfunction) and of course has extended Learning Disability (LD). She has a full time para and is only mainstreamed for phy-ed. She does half days at school and sees psychologist and Occupational Therapist (OT) 2x a week. She also has great medication dr. (SO FAR) So I'm always busy with her. I also have three other daughters. 18,16,and 8. My 12 yr old ,as you could imagine is 100 hands ful. I love her so much but wish she could love me back in the same way. I know she does. It's just sometimes I feel so far away from her and want to take her pain. I'm glad to be here. Thanks!

    Welcome. Many people are lost and frantic when they find this site. Myself included. You seem to have a handle on things. Good for you. You sure do have your hands full.

    This is an amazing site with a lot of support from experience.

    Hope we can lend a shoulder or two or three, or more.
