No to wifi electronics in bedroom and older appliances and yes to airport. Also tons of ford plants around here

Quoting PeaceLoveZ:

 This may sound odd but does your mom live near large EMF fields? Alot of studies have been done about EMF's and the dmages it does to the body and mind, simply by lving near a power plant or those large Power Line Towers. Some people are more sensitive to EMF's and it can severly affect them. Does she have WiFi, that can trigger issues, does she live near an airport? How old are her appliances? The odler they are the more EMFs they give off... How many electronics does he ahve in his room, your extremely vulnerable to EMFs while you sleep so it's best to keep electronis at least 6 feet away from your bed.

How can he be diagnosed with BPD when the symptoms don't usually show up until adolescence or adulthood? Serious question, not bashing.

Idk maybe because he shows all the symptoms you wouldnt be surprised if you knew him. I love him to death and he CAN be a good kid but.... Yeah hes got some major issues.

I'm sure he does if your mom is getting him checked out. I hope you guys get through this ok. I'd get a few other opinions before making a treatment plan, but that's me. Good luck.

He was diagnosed as being having Bipolar disorder, or the doctor thought he might have it?


I ask because have not heard of children being given a firm diagnosis of being Bipolar until they were young adults.

My stepson was is 5 and was diagnosed as a high functioning autistic, adhd, and bipolar disorder. he has seen several therapists to control his mood swings but nothings helped. Good luck

 He was diagnosed with it. We went to several therapists that said the same thing. I'll have to get the paperwork from his BM when we go visit in a few weeks. His Dr was very apt on getting him put on medications but we are all against it (me,my dh, DS' BM and DS' Step dad)
