My name is Nicole and I am the mom to three beautiful children. My middle child has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder, ADHD, and ODD (Oppositional Defiance Disorder). We have been battling his mood disorder for nearly 3 years now. It has been a struggle every step of the way. I hope that by sharing my struggle, I can help other parents who find themselves in a similar situation. I would love to hear about your trials and tribulations with your bipolar child, so please comment and share your story.

My name is Shonda and I have a 7 year old son that has ADHD/ODD and bipolar disorder. It is a very hard each and everyday I completely understand what you are going through. I knew there was something wrong with my son when he was 2 but could not get my doctor at the time to listen to me. So I switched doctors and we now have a wonderful doctor who actually can relate to me. The only thing that worries me is that my son is now on four different medications and I am just not sure if that is healthy for him. We have tried so many medications and these are the only ones that seem to work. I was just wondering if you have the same problem and how much medication your child was on. If you could help me out I would be so happy to hear what you have to say.
