So is my son. He threw a huge temper tantrum in the car on the way home tonight, and this is after one he threw Saturday night where I had to go get him from his grandparents. I have scratch marks and bruises all over. I took him to the emergency room, again. They had to help me restrain him. A great police officer helped us out and helped to calm him. The crisis psych person on staff thinks he may be mis-diagnosed with his ADHD. His counselor thinks he may be mis-diagnosed as well. The crisis person tonight believes he may be bi-polar, which can sometimes look like ADHD, but in children it is hard to diagnose because it may manifest itself in varied ways. If they would have asked tonight if he needed to go inpatient, I would have said yes. They did not. Hopefully we can see his doctor tomorrow. Is there no help out there for this?
