I just found this site today. My name is Erin and I live in NH. My son is 9 and has ADHD. I think he's bipolar too but no one else thinks so including his doctor. He is in the 3rd grade and is doing horrible. He is currently unmedicated only because there isn't a medication that he can take without nasty side affects (tics, not sleeping AT all, not eating). He has tried everything in the past 5 years (including a new medication that works for everyone BUT him). I can deal with him at home unmedicated with no issues, his school is another story. They called today to schedule a meeting for Friday morning to discuss "social" issues. This honestly made me cry. I have to go to yet another meeting that is going to start the same as all the others, "he is a sweet boy BUT......". I am just about ready to throw in the towel and pull him out of school. If I'm the only person that can deal with him then maybe he is better off being homeschooled? So I am just frustrated and depressed. It just stinks not knowing how his future is going to turn out. I'm sure I'll be posting here often and I look forward to joining in.
