New Psych appointment went well
Bugga is technically a ward of the state so we are limited to taking him to certain doctors and clinics. The clinic he goes to hasn't had a qualified psych in quite a while. The last one questioned Bugga's asperger's diagnosis saying that he didn't respond the way asperger's kids respond (she only spent 30 minutes with him!). So I was worried that this new doctor would react the same way.
The appointment got off to a rocky start, it was supposed to be a 2 hr. appointment but the office only booked us for an hour. But things went smoothly from there on. Where the last doctor was doing something else through the entire visit, this one actually paid attention and focused on Bugga. She didn't question the asperger's diagnosis at all. Actually, she questioned his ADD diagnosis, saying that she suspected he is Bi-Polar or depressive (which we have suspected for a long time now). I'm really hopeful that with this doctor's help we can get my happy little nephew back. He's become so moody and unhappy in recent years. Hopefully things will go better now. :)
