Hello all, My name is Catherine and I am mommy to 3 little boys. I live close to Conroe, Texas which is north of Houston. My oldest is Austin. He is 10 and has been diagnosed with ADHD since kindergarten. We tried a LOT of different medications with him and with most of the medications the side effects were worse than the ADHD. However; recently I have begun to consider trying medications with him again. He has really been having conduct issues at school. Not staying on Task, talking excessively, disruptiveness and all. Then there are my twins. Christian is 8 and was diagnosed with Autism around the age of two and a half. He also has Sensory Integration Disorder. Christian has never taken any medications and his behavior is generally good but lately he has shown signs of aggression and anger, which I think are just frustration because he has issues communicating with us (outside of repeating movie lines). And then there is Aaron. He is my TRUE difficult child. The one who will end up sending me to an early grave if things don't change soon. Aaron is Christian's fraternal twin brother. He is diagnosed with Pervasive Developmental Disorder (PDD), Sensory Integration Disorder (SID), Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), ADHD, and recently Epilepsy. He is taking a LOT of medications, and at this point I'm not sure if ANY of them are doing anything for him. His behavior is OFF THE CHARTS!!! He actually will literally run around in circles sometimes he gets so wired up!! And I have witnessed him do things on purpose to his brother s just to make them mad!! He is defiant, aggressive, downright mean at times, irritable, has crying spells, wets the bed, wets his pants at school, has these intense periods of terror, blurts out odd phrases at odd times...and the list goes on. He is currently taking Depakote 250mg in the morning and evening, Trileptal 450mg in the morning and evening, Strattera 40mg once a day, and Invega 3mg once a day. I THOUGHT that since he was on the Depakote and Trileptal he would be a little calmer (since it's SUPPOSED to be a mood stabilizer, AND a mild calmant). I am to the point now where I DREAD waking up every day, I am exhausted,stressed out, and sad. I guess I am just looking for SOMEONE out there who understands that my kids ARE NOT EVIL!! My mother won't even come to my house, and says that I should take Aaron to a priest!! Has anyone else here had a child like Aaron?? Any pointers for how to cope??
