My son was diagnosed with ADHD and ODD 2 years ago....He was put on different meds and they did not work for him...they seemed to make him worst....Now that he has gotten older I noticed more bad behavior that is now involving the law...I do not know what to do and I am at my rope's end....He has a therapist that comes out to our house weekly and a behavioral therapist that sees him weekly and I just don't know how else I can help him... I am afraid that my son is going to end up in jail or dead....He has a horrible mouth, is very disrespectful to me and everyone, lies constantly and just recently has set a fire in our apt. complex...please someone give me some advice on how to control myself and help him...I have issues myself that I am dealing with and with his combined I just don't know how I am going to make it...PLEASE HELP US????
Yes I believe that he has bipolar also but it is very hard to find a dr that will diagnose children with that because they say it is too similar to ADHD. Plus they dont want to medicate children that have bipolar disorder...its more like a catch 22 really.
