Autism + Bipolar = LOL + WTH

A new Dr. believes Nicky's new manic behaviors indicate he might be Bipolar! When he told me, I let out a spontaneous laugh as I thought  "why not?!!!".  It's just like adding nut's on top of our already overflowing banana split.  In truth at this point it's just one more label. More words people use to further define our experience. It really doesn't change our life at all.  So, what's to do? Just take it in stride, learn, listen, love and keep moving day at a time.

PS: Seems Bipolar can come on in adolescence and is at it's worst December - March.

  5. Hey there, I'm a new blogger coming from Schiedam, Netherlands who found you on Would you have any points for those considering blogging? I'm hope to start my οwn page verу soon but I'm a bit lost on everything. Do you think I should start out with a free site like b2evolution or invest some cash into a pay site? There are so many options out there that I'm
    cοmpletely overloaded... What woulԁ you ѕay?

    Ѕtοp by my weblog:

  6. Teenagehood is the worst time of one's life. We all become manic between the ages of 13-19 except for future psychologists of course who remain perfectly normal throughout their entire lives. Don't trust that label just yet. At least wait until your son reaches 22-23. I speak from experience. It gets better. All that's left in the end is teeth grinding (but only while sleeping), heartburn, noise and heat intolerance but without the tantrums, and now after reading your blog there's also a bit of guilt when thinking back on what I put my parental figures through. Oh I also still have the desire to cover myself only in soft, luxurious fabrics.

    I am an educated, successful young adult, happily married without children. I was raised with unconditional love and understanding just like your son is.
