... which doesn't surprise me. I asked for a letter about difficult child and why he is taking lithium, for the school system's 504 and future Child Study. The dr's receptionist called to ask the name of our therapist for the letter, and I in turn asked her if the diagnosis was Mood Disorder not otherwise specified or (emerging) bipolar. I was not surprised to hear that bipolar was not written. As I mentioned to the school psychiatric yesterday, once it's in writing, it's forever. Since we're getting the treatment we need, I really don't care what it's called. Having said that, with-the way the health care system is going, I think it will benefit difficult child to get it in writing in a few years, once he's on his own.
