New here. User name says it all. 45 yo father of two boys. Married 18 years to same woman (47). Bilological parents to both childen. Oldest 14 yo easy child, couldn't ask for better. No issues. difficult child 12 yo just hospitalized - diagnosis Psychosis not otherwise specified. Was diagnosis 3 years ago with ADHD. diagnosis progressed to now ADHD, Pervasive Developmental Disorder (PDD)-not otherwise specified, High-Functioning Autism (HFA), ODD and in psychiatric hospital for psychotic behavior and thoughts. Wanted to kill us and our pets. Didn't mention killing brother although said he hates him. Started out so minor 3 years agp. I thought CST were being overly dramatic. CPS and CST got involved and picked apart entire family life, they placed him in special school for ADHD kids. First year okay then went downhill. Refused to do work in school. 6 seperate IEPs. Was in hospital for stitches after irritating another student enough to hurt him. Me - Didn't want to accept there was something wrong with my boy. Wanted to believe he'd be okay if I worked hard enough. Left first job after diagnosis to be with him and help. Researched what they said he had, but just enough to wonder if they were right. Now researching this like I'm going for my post-doctorate. Current psychosis probably revealed by me by pulling him off medications. Previous psychiatrist gave the okay because so far nothing had worked. In retrospect, very bad idea and wont do it again and now questioning previous psychiatrist. hospital psychiatrist says removing medications didn't cause psychosis, just revealed what was there all along. I peeled back the onion. Now he's in a state bordering on reality and severly depressed. Don't have signature with details yet, but medications so far. So far condition has been very resistant to drug therapy. Last listed are most recent. Probably missing a few of the older ones tried. Ritalin -> Metadate -> Strattera -> Strattera, Tenex -> Concerta 34mg, Prozac 40mg -> Concerta 34mg, Prozac 40mg, Abilify 20mg - > Concerta 54mg, Haldol 2mg -> Hospital Now on Concerta 54mg, Seroquel 25mg, Zoloft 50mg and they will probably change as he's stabilized. Going to visit him now. Just need to talk to others facimig similar situations. Learning the board code and future post will be less verbose.
