Hi all moms.
Thank you for accepting me to your circle. x

My son was diagnosed with all the above in November 2015... He has always been a handful. At school and at home. He is an only child and needs to be with freinds constantly.
Last year he got his first real "girlfreind". It ended very badly and was the start of a nightmare with him..
The psachiatrist has put him on Concerta 54mg. Lexamil 10mg and Urbanol 5mg,
I must admit, I do see a change in him. For the better. BUT the minute something does not go his way or he cant do, or have, exactly what he wants, when he wants it, he rants and raves, says the most hurtfull things to me and then goes into a depression and does not talk to me.
I am finding this so hard to deal with. We cant just giving in to him to "keep the peace and keep him happy".
Yesterday we saw the Dr for our 3rd visit. After he was finished we got in the car and all hell was let loose...
PLEASE, anybody else going through this with a son this age? Will he ever be able to lead a normal happy life without this depresssion and anger... And, as a mother, how do I deal with him ?? I feel that whatever I do is wrong....
Thanks so much for any help and advice anybody can give me xxx
