Have not wanted to blog about this but I need support!!!!
Okay so here goes! My oldest sons are twins and are 10 years old. ONe of them has been diagnosed bipolar and also ADHD. I know there is something going on with him as he has really highs and lows, like one minutes he will be bouncing off the walls and the next depressed and saying nobody likes him. The past month , well really two months, has been really trying with him!!! I don't know what is going on. I am wondering if his medicine is having a reverse reaction on him and making him more angry and aggitated. I made him a appt for MOnday but ya know how doctor;s are. I really would like to try some all natural stuff on him but don't really know how to do that and you know I cannot talk to his doctor about it cause he will just say he needs the meds. He has changed his meds, added meds, lowered them , up'd them all of that till now he is on three different kinds of meds and such. IT has just been so hard . Then my other problem is how to discipline him , he takes so much out of me! He can be the sweetest child then bring me to tears the next. He says constantly he is stupid , dumb, and nobody likes him although his dad and I have talked till we are blue in the face to him and told him otherwise. He sometimes just makes me feel like terrible mom and that I have done something and it is what I am doing to make him like this. I just wonder if all this has to do with him being so premature when he was a baby. I just really needed to talk and get this out,. WE have tried everything with him. Any suggestions,tips,supports,etc... would greatly be appreciated.
