I wanted to let you know that Tony will be released today or tomorrow from the center at the hospital and they have determined that he was misdiagnosed years ago and is not ADHD but is truly bipolar and the improvement in this past week alone is amazing. They gave him a med break and put him on only two meds for his bipolar disorder and we can already see a marked improvement. Do I dare say that I see a small light at the end of a very long tunnel? He actually sees this "episode" in his life as a gift that has helped him get better. All positive things!!! HOORAY!

Just wanted to share some good news and wanted to thank everyone for the hugs and support during this very trying time in my life.

I wish him (and you) the best of luck. I hope his meds keep him stable & happy, Just make sure heis compliant & keeps his doc appointments. It is so important to have follow up visits & med checks.

Thanks. We already have a psychiatrist and a therapist set up and have appointments with both to keep things going in the right direction, so with his new meds and all the new people in our live's helping I can't help but be optimistic!

I'll be in touch and let everyone know how things are going.


Thanks again for the support,
