DS has another appt on Friday with the Autism center we started going to last month. Tis time to see the psychiatrist mostly. We went to the center for several things. One of them being to discuss meds for his more troublesome symptoms. Mostly for his ADHD symptoms, which are interfering with his school work and possibly his anxiety. The other thing mentioned was depression. I know he is somewhat depressed but I don't know if I would call it clinical... I mean he has made threats to injure himself but he has never done so and he is always in a passion when he says it... I know his depression stems from his inability to create and maintain meaningful friendships... He feels like no one *really* likes him... I am just not sure how I feel about my 8 year old being on anti-depressant drugs... It took me this long to even consider ADHD drugs. I insisted on other options first. ::sigh:: I know, of course, no one can make this decision for me- I am just looking for feed back.Answer Question
