posted a day or two ago? I read the message fomr Kuanyin & see nothing that says reply.

Anyway Kuanyin if you are reading this, I am glad you are getting a break. It's nice to be away from them, no matter howmuch you love them. I hope this new place can help Sam some.

Oh no Kuanyin has Sam gone off again?

Where is he and what's going on?

Thanks, it is kind of neat. Went for family therapy and his counselor and I were talking about what a confusing little guy he is. He is bipolar for sure, but there is more going on and it is very hard to pinpoint. He has some PDD traits big time, but also some things that would seem to contradict it. She hopes they will be able to gain some understanding into his problems. Me too!

Sounds like Sam and Jonathan still are going down a parallel path with the dx.

I'm sure they are not completely though. Since we only have one child and Jonathan

doesn't spend time with other kids I don't get a chance to compare behavior except

by the Internet. You mentioned PDD.

Jonathan has been said to be Bipolar and Asperger's Syndrome.

However, Asperger's and PDD/NOS are very close to the same thing from what I have read.

When the dx doesn't meet enough of the criteria for Asperger's then PDD is often used.

Your were asking me about Adderal. I think the doctor didn't want to

try that because it still had amphetamines just like Ritalin and we

were worried about side effects like weight loss and jitters.

The Concerta was dropped because of that and Strattera put in it's place.

Adderal could work though, we are not ruling it out.

How Sam doing?
