Hello, I wanted to know if anyone might be able to help, I have a 9 year old daughter who shows signs of rigidness, black and white thinking, uncontrolable impulsitivites, hates changes in routines, poor social skills, fixations on details, along with depression, perfectionism,attention problems, and other behaviorla issues as I am sure you can imagine the ones that go with a few of these, she started at age 4 with these, has seen a PSYchatrist, and 2 neuros, I said she had ADD, maybe a PDD, another Major depressive disorder,Social Anxiety Disorder, PDD-NOS, now today I got ADHD-NOS and OCD? Im at wits end, shes a great girl, whose heading right straight for the wall, Her younger brother has Aspergers, I have 3 immediate family members with severe bipolar disorders, and several Autistic cousins, I myself and my only brother had ADD when we were kids,so they tell me.... How can one diferentate the difference of the symptoms and where they go? My daughter and son are so much alike they react the same way, do the same things, its unbelivable, shes on STAterra and Wellbutrin, only after everyother med known to man was tried and rendered horriable side effects. My son nothing, however he has A behavirol Health Professional that works with him, and she is awesome. He is doing great, shes sinking and fast, I am perplexed at how now the same symptoms she has are now due to OCD, she may display a few of the characteristics, but so do we all, I would know if she was OCD. I have seen the gains my son has made with a BHP, and the small tiny gains she makes over the years with meds and I am on my 3 rd year of trying to get services for her. I am so frustrated and want to cry,... I know where this child is heading, and I am trying my hardest to prevent that, Does anyone have a n take on where I should go?
Should I ask to see a Child PSY?, even after the Neuros?, What differentiates the symptoms? Now they want me to put her on Luvoix? Just another pill again, Besides the two of them with Special needs, I have a 6 year old and twin 4 year olds, one of which is heading right down the same path as the other two? I am drowning here any help, or info is gladley appreciated, I have studied, researched and attended seminars for AS children and its as clear as day to me what the problem is,even though each have such a different wway about it, how can I get someone else to see that?
