The psychiatrist appointment for my daughter went really well today, although I did get a bit of a funny look from her when I walked in with all my notes (of things I learned from this site) and questions I wanted to ask. I'd signed a form when my daughter first started going, saying that it was ok for them to video the appointments for review (her psychiatrist is also a teacher for it). When I asked today if she thought there might be anything else along with the ODD, I was told that it didn't appear to be other than mild anxiety. Apparently my daughter is one of the very rare few that has ODD and nothing else along with it. I'm skeptical. She (the psychiatrist) seemed genuinely surprised that I had taken it upon myself to educate myself about ODD, and to alter my parenting so that it will be as beneficial to my daughter as possible. My daughter did surprise the psychiatrist and myself with some of the things she was saying and doing while playing with farm animals. It appeared that she was starting to act out some of what had happened to her while at her bio. father's house. That was the first time that my daughter has done that for someone other than myself and husband. Next appointment we will be getting into that with my daughter some more. I got another message from the psychiatrist to "continue protecting your daughter as much as you legally can." (She knows that my daughter's bio. father is attempting to control me through the courts and that there is a pending trial.) All in all, though, it was a really good appointment and was very encouraging.
