Re: How to get dd help (possible bipolar,ADD,Aspergers,Autism)
My ds went through every diagnosis in the book beginning around 3-4 years old. He ended up drugged up and very messed up from them! I'm sorry but I really don't think you can diagnose a 5 year old with bi-polar disoorder and yes, I have been there and done that. Those meds can mess up a child and their organs for the rest of their life
Turns out, DS only had PDD nos and possibly aspergers, but shows no signs of even that now. He's not on any meds anymore, HS'd and doing absolutely wonderful with nothing wrong with him!
ETA: I also cut out all red dyes, extra sugar & sweeteners and it made a HUGE difference too.
