Hi everyone. I wanted to introduce my situation right now. My DS, 6, is very ADHD. However, in being dx by a dr myself as being bipolar, I have been on guard for it in my son. His psych said there are a couple of things that lead her to see it in him, however, she is reluctant to dx him with bipolar yet. So she put him on ADHD medicine, Concerta. Which is enhancing the irritation levels. I don't have the self harm, thank goodness. Right now we are just starting to deal with the mood levels. My problem is when looking at what he does on an individual basis, it seems like normal boy/brother behavior. Which is what delayed him getting seen by a dr in the first place. But I know that it isn't normal for him. I orginally thought he had a sensory issue. Which would explain parts of the bipolar. I am currently reading a bood for childhood bipolar and a book for my own bipolar. I want to help him get through his childhood and learn how to handle it.
