I've lurked once or twice on the board, but never really joined in because I felt a little out of place, with a son (Niels, 5 yo) who's dx'd with both mood disorder NOS (possible early onset bipolar disorder) and ADHD/ODD. But I see a number of kids here have a dual diagnosis, so figured I'd like to jump in too :-). Niels's mood problems are pretty much under control now with a mood stabilizer and we're now trialling Concerta.
I have a question for you all: Niels TALKS CONSTANTLY and LOUD, and he's also very attention seeking. There are really times, when I'm trying to deal with something else and Niels is talking my ear off, when I feel like my head is going to explode. Does anyone have any ideas on how to stem the verbal tide now and then???
Nice to "meet" you all!
