We visited with the new psychiatrist today. He thinks all 3 difficult children are bipolar. He had an awkward moment chuckled under his breath, then said "You're going to think I'm a proponent of bipolar and this medication." I'm a little surprised he thinks middle difficult child has this. I guess it's always a possibility with bio-mom having this diagnosis, I just don't see much depression in him. He is over the top happy when he's happy, but I don't see sadness often. psychiatrist asked him some questions and every answer was yes. I think this is just my difficult children personality to say what he thinks you want to hear. He wants them all to try out respiradol (sp?) for now and come back in 2 weeks for a check up. I'm not sure if its my own allergy medications, but today I just feel like I'm not on my game. I am at a loss as to what questions I should have asked, really if I did anything right in this meeting. He asked my opinion and I told him I didn't see it in middle difficult child, but he said that even if he had a mild form of it, if we didn't treat it first, the ADHD medications were just going to make it worse. He recommended I read "The Bipolar Child" LOL...I found that funny. Maybe he comes on this board and reads what ya'll say? LOL Any thoughts on trying this medication on middle difficult child? I do agree with him that oldest and youngest difficult child seem to have many BiPolar (BP) traits, but I'm really not certain on middle difficult child. They need a smiley face up there that looks like its in a cloud. Cuz my brain is hazey today.
