My son, 9 was just Diagnosed as ADHD. If this helps we are soooo happy it's not child-onset bipolar. We have a long family history of bipolar on both sides so we were very concerned it was bipolar or aspergers. He's on a low dose of vyvanse to make sure it helps but doesn't cause mania if he is bipolar. The doctor is hoping his anxiety (skin picking) and depression (suicide attempts) will diminish with treatment along with a lot of his ADHD type issues. He will also start therapy in January. I am very proud that he was very honest with the doctor even tough he was scared that if he was honest he'd be taken away. I have so much more hope that with help we can get him back on track to being a happy / healthy adult.

Welcome Lisa!!! I am Linda, mommy to 3. A 6 year old, Alex, who has autism and ADHD, a five year old, Katie, who has pFAS and probable ADHD, and a very active two year old who also probably has ADHD and pFAS. I also have ADHD and have been on meds for years.
I'm hoping that with meds and therapy that all your son's issues diminish. I'm looking forward to getting to know you better.
