Hello how is everyone doing today.  As you all know the little boy I have guardianship of has been diagnosed with severe childhood bipolar, well he has now also been diagnosed with Static Enephalopathy ( fetal alcohol effect).  It seems to be never ending for him.  He is doing really good right now.  The rispedal has done wonders for him. If anyone has any advice or knows anything about this new diagnosis please help me out.  Thanks.

Not a diagnosis I am familiar with...but I am glad he is still doing well inspite of it.  Risperdal has worked wonderfully for me also.

odd how this pops up now. today i talked with my therapist and i asked if a child can have bipolar. i remember feeling the manic symptoms, extreme irratibility, the guilt and the voices in my head. she said its sort of an up an up and coming thing, new to have people actually diagnosing it. alls i know is i have been through it, and i remember parts of my childhood being truly hell. i feel for you and for your boy and i truly hope that he continues doing well.

Thanks for replying.....  I truely believe that if we didn't end up with him and he would have stayed with any of the bio family he wouldn't be getting the diagnoses and help he needs.  I feel that both me and Kbear have been blessed with each other.  He is a wonderful little boy....He's just broken and can't be fixed.  He has brain damage because his bio mom drank while pregnant.  It makes me sick to think that someone could do something like this to a child.
