Well, it has been a while since I have been posting, things have been getting pretty crazy around my house lately. For starters, our oldest went to see her p-doctor on Friday, and we have been improving in LEAPS AND BOUNDS since we switched to this woman. She's amazing!!! It totally fascinates her that I frequent this board and that I am so involved with a great group of people working to help our children. She constantly asks me what new things I have been reading and if I came across anything interesting that I would like to discuss with her. Also, she is working VERY hard to get our difficult child functioning the best she can on the LEAST amount of medication possible, and it has been a process of trial and error, but now that difficult child is a bit older, they have been able to determine that she was MIS diagnosed with ADHD, and she is off the stimulants, and off the sleeping pills, and off the anti-depressants, and the ONLY pill she has to take now is the mood stabilizer (Lamictal). She said it isn't recommended for children under 16, but it was the best, so she wanted to try it, but said that instead of increasing the dose every seven days, she wants to increase it a month at a time until we get to where she needs to be. She did mention to me something that kind of got my curiosity going, and I am not sure what to do with the information she gave me besides share it with her counselor.... she said that our difficult child is showing Signs of borderline personality disorder. She also mentioned this is NOT diagnosed until adulthood, so she would not say that she IS borderline at this point, but just that she shows a LOT of signs of it. I don't know much about it, but I am wondering if there is an ADOLESCENT disorder that can co-exist with Bipolar that has the same symptoms......she said that we would continue to explore it as she matures, but I was just curious if anyone knew of a connection. Also, we have started the process of getting our 5 year old in for evaluations. Her counselor said that she doesn't think she has ADHD, because there is NOTHING wrong with her attention span, but she is very hyperactive and she has some control issues, also she has a few other quirky things that have put up flags for her and she would like to see her have some testing done. The ONLY psychiatrist around that takes children that young, thank our lucky stars, has a GREAT reputation for being reasonable in treatment of young children, but will not accept a referral from her counselor, he is insisting that a referral come from her pediatrician, so we called and he agreed to write the referral as long as he could spend some time with her when he does her school physical on Tuesday, so once we get that referral, we can start setting appointments for the evaluation. My other question to you, my youngest daughter, who truly is a easy child is almost 4, and has been completely potty trained (day and overnight)since before she was two. We have NEVER had complications, until a few weeks ago and she started to wet the bed again. Then the last few days, she has been having accidents during the day too.... she doesn't seem to be in pain or irritated so I don't think she has a bladder infection, but is there something that could be going on psychologically that is making this happen??? I know that she is used to her sister being in daycare with her, and now she isn't because she started school, but that is really the only thing that changed, and even before when they WERE in daycare together, it was a preschool and they were in separate classes and didn't really see each other during the day, they even had separate playgrounds because they broke the playgrounds up by age for equipment safety reasons..... Just curious!!! If anyone has any thoughts..... Thanks!!!
