Schizoaffective, Psychotic disorder NOS, and more.

Not really sure where to post this.  My son just turned 8, and his "official" diagnosis is psychotic disorder NOS, and ADHD. BUT, the psychiatrist said he is most likely schizoaffective bipolar type, with depression and possibly Aspergers. He has been seeing her since Feb, when he was hospitalized for a pretty big crisis. He's a great kid, smart, artistic, funny, but it breaks my heart when he just switches into (what he calls the hulk). He isn't as violent anymore, and the meds are helping the hallucinations, but we still have the delusions, paranoia, anger, depression, and adhd. I don't really know what I am trying to ask, maybe if there is someone else out there going through something similar? I just feel like I'm going crazy sometimes. I even had to take him out of public school and put him in an online charter school (so I homeschool him, essentially), while still working a full time job. Anybody know any tips or advice or just anything good to know? Sorry its so long.
