I called psychiatrist last Friday. He didn't call back until today. I was concerned because he has been on Lamictal for 3 years now, and he originally was put on it because of anger issues, but haven't seen anger issues in a long time. So, I was questioning whether the anger has been under control because of the medications or if he doesn't need it. I told psychiatrist that he has never had any kind of testing done, and with all the issues at school, I would like a neuropsychologist test done. I told him I called the insurance and the initial intake has been approved. He told me no. He said just because he is "forgetting" things doesn't mean he needs an evaluation. They are too expensive and there is no need for one. I tried telling him about all the issues every day at school, his blinking, mouth movements, being kicked out of class he kept telling me that isn't a reason for an evaluation. I told him about him passing out this morning, still, no reason. He said you bring him back here next week and I'll talk to him. So, Next monday we go to him. I would just like to know once and for all what kind of diagnosis he has. psychiatrist never did any kind of test at all. He did have so much anger, but that is gone and now we have a whole other set of issues. I need to know if he is on medication because he needs it or if he no longer needs it. I want to know why he can't remember anything (at school). He remembers information, but not his books, papers, supplies. Is he just being lazy? It is just beyond me to think you go to class, work on a paper then walk out without books or the paper you were working on?!?! And, when he does his work at home. It is mostly done on the computer and is very neat and a lot of thought put into it. He forgets to turn it in. Now, he can rattle of who plays for what sports team, the college their stats...but can't remember to bring books to class? Is he just being difficult on purpose? difficult child tells me he gets kicked out for talking, even though everyone else is talking. If it were a focusing issue, would it only apply with school? Don't know how to get psychiatrist to agree to the evaluation. The evaluation would be done through childrens hospital, not through psychiatrist. I do believe he does them though. He is through Rogers Memorial Hospital, board certified pediatric psychiatrist. But, he never listens to me. Talks real fast like to hurry and get us out. difficult child even said he says the same thing every time we go. We are only there maybe 10 minutes from the time we walk into the room. Maybe even less. Just frustrated today.
