i have a 5 year old bipolar, ADHD child and he is driving me crazy. we finally got his aggression in check with meds. but now we have to stop the depakote. he is suffering from liver damage and a critically low white blood cell count. And all this on the verge of him starting kindergarten on monday. He clings to me every second of the time we are together. everything i do is an invitation to a tantrum party. he doesnt do anything i tell him to do. i find mysself screaming at him in anger more than anything. i dont like to do that but i cant stop myself most of the time. when he sleeps i look at him and love him more than anything but when he is awake i dont want to be near him and it hurts me to feel this way. i will be starting therapy but i have reservations about it working. he has been in therapy over a year but it doesnt seem to work. is there anyone out there going through the same thing? let me know what to do.
