I'm a 52 year old mom with two special needs children. One 12 another 25. I'm looking for a group of friends that can relate to what I'm living with , where we can help and encourage each other. etc

I'm looking for a group of mom's with children like mine to trade tips and questions about med's etc. With diagnosis's of PDD NOS and mood disorder NOS. There must be some mom's out there looking for the same.

You can join the group by just clicking the link I posted and there should be a "join" button somewhere, or it'll automatically join you when you post...it keeps changing it seems so I'm not sure which method it is currently.



My son has been a handful. We didn't medicate at all until last year, but he was depressed and it was severe so we got him help. His depression was treated and his ADHD became more obvious and had to be treated because he was failing at school even with adaptations. Then we realized he has OCD and that needed treatment, because it was interfering with life in a big way. 2 weeks ago he developed vocal tics, so he had a med adjustment. He's FINALLY - this past year - happy for the first time in his life and I'm starting to see his personality, not just his struggles with his body and mind. It's a light at the end of the tunnel that he's going to be okay.

I'd like to join your group. How do i do this? I'm new to circle of moms. I'm interest in info on medicine. My 12 year old's doc wants to put my son on a new medicine. It's a mood stabilizer called saphris. My insurance company denied it. it's a $400 med. The doctor said she would call the insurance company but right now she is busy and I have to wait till she gets to it. Do you have any advise? She lowered on of his meds because he got too heavy. My son's 12 and he's 160 pounds. All mood stabilizing drugs make him gain weight. Tell me about your son. I'd like to hear from you and see if I can help you in any way.
