My 11 year old step son was kind of diagnosed with ADHD. When I say kind of I mean we just told the doc that we didnt know what was wrong and we thought it was ADD. He just gave us some meds and said .try these. He has been on the medication for a long time now and it just does not seem to be the problem. He can focus on video games, TV shows, pokemon cards, ect, for a long time. When it comes to school it doesnt seem like he focuses that well. He is soooo active. It is so hard trying to get him to sleep because he is never tired..even when he would go swimming all day. I was just wondering if any parents of children with bipolar could give me some warning signs or any advice. The BIG problem for us is he lives with his mom in a different state. She could care less if she takes him to the doctor or not. So the only way we can get him checked out is when we fly up there or his grandma might take him. My husband is going to court soon and he would like recommend to the judge that his son be required to have his ex put him in counseling and to recheck him for ADHD and maybe see if he is bipolar. If you need any info of his behavior let me know. I didnt want this post to be too long. THANK YOU!

I'm trying to exercise daily. I was doing fairly well until I sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago but now I'm getting back on the horse. Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
