glad you have a good appointment and are ruling things out/in with the kids. Being proactive puts us in a much better state of mind :angel:

<span style='font-size: 11pt'>Sounds like you had a good session with the psychologist but I am glad you will get a more thorough evaluation by a specialist in mood disorders in children. I know you feel better but her impression over that short of a time isn't really something to take to the bank. in my humble opinion. Hopefully you won't have to deal with a mood disorder and all the complications it brings to one's life but let someone who has more credentials be the one's to tell you what is going on with difficult child.</span>
