OMGwtf*whatnext Posted October 18, 2005 Share Posted October 18, 2005 So my son was dx'ed this summer with type 1 diabetes. Shortly after that, his behavior problems started escalating. He's always been one of the most interesting kids I've ever known, funny, creative, intelligent, with an outrageous, In Your Face approach to life. He's also the kid that all the other parents don't know how I do it. He was dx'ed autistic at 3, PDDNOS at 6, Hyperverbal, Type 1 at 9. He's been very depressed so I took him in for counseling. Depression is common in kids who are newly dx'ed with chronic diseases. The psychologist recommended meds, sent us to a psychiatrist for evaluating. Today we got our script. Wellbutrin for the depression and Risperdal to counteract the psychotic symptoms she thinks the wellbutrin will cause. She also mentioned ADD, BiPolar, and his hearing voices. So this is, I suppose, just the tip of the iceberg. I have been medicated in the past, so has the hubby, but we both opted out of staying medicated for reasons of our own. I don't believe the boy will have that option for now, maybe never. Right now, I'm reeling over some of the things the doc said. He's just so young. Thanks for having these forums! This is the kind of crap that I would never be able to put elsewhere, I think. LOL Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
