    Re: Child Suicides

    I would so love to find another answer.......I am not arguing here ..... find me another solution. That is what I want ... cos I agree, but whats the answer here ..

    As a baby my son never slept. He wanted to, he was so tired. He would go into spasms that he could not control, I'm talking at a few months old. The spasms were so severe that we had him tested, honestly it looked like he was having a seizure. The tests came back ok - there was nothing wrong. He also would grab hold of me and seem unable to let go - his mind seemed to have no control over his body... I am still talking about a baby that sleeps in a crib.

    As he grew older, you would not believe this child of mine. I never saw so much love, energy and happiness come from one single being. No one could contain this much passion, its unreal - but he did, the feelings were gob smacking.

    I would do the usual stuff, like take him to mother and toddler groups etc.and he would launch into this, as he did in life, with passion, enthusiasm and unconditional love. Trouble is other kids did not understand this. They did not understand this kid, who was oblivious to the needs of others, just so totally focused on his passion at that time. When they did voice their rage, he was devastated, no mortified - he could not understand what had happened or what was now happening.

    When he reached school age, he still approached life in a happy, oh so happy way. Totally oblivious to how much he annoyed people. Until they did not want to play with him anymore....they did not appreciate being knocked over by him...did not appreciate his 'oblivious to others' ways and apparent self centeredness - unknowingly to them it was not deliberate. Did you ever try forcing your child to go to school where he knew that no one wanted to be with him, where he knew, yet again, he would spend recess sitting alone on a bench.

    Believe me I tried everything.. I fought this like you would not believe. He was on a totally organic diet, I tried natural products. In the end I had to help him, he was so sad, his safety was at risk ... he could not walk down the street without risk of suddenly darting out in the road and being hit by a car. What would you do...? If there is another answer, give it to me now..cos I would try anything.

    Can you image each day filled with 'Josh stop that', 'Josh get off that chair' 'Josh be quiet' 'Josh sit still' ..... what sort of life is that?

    WOW!
    That has to be the most hard hitting thing I've seen on FG.

    My apologies, Pheasy. That's none of my business.
    It's just, as I said, my passion,

    I can strongly recommend something for you.
    If you're interested I'll pm you.
    I won't post it because I don't want to be accused of selling snake oils or spamming.
    I'm not selling anything.

    Josh is nearly 13 years old now. He is on Focalin 20mg (ADHD), Celexa 20mg (depression), Abilify 2.5 mg (bi-polar) .... believe me when I say it breaks my heart each morning when I give him these. I do not see it as the easy option - I would rather not give him these and have the trauma in our life - if I could give everything I ever had and believed in, to replace these I would. Please don't think I am taking an easy option here.
    But now I have a son who has friends, who does not feel like a failure anymore, who knows he is a valuable member of society. For the first time in his life he believes in himself

    Re: Child Suicides

    And my heart fell when you I read that. I won't preach. I will never try to force a parent to do something other than what they think is best for their child.
    But I will, in one post only, beg.
    Please don't allow this to go any further.
    If need be I will buy and ship you some Balance myself.
    It's not too late. It's never too late.
    He's okay and you know it.
    He's a very intelligent boy. So intelligent he bypasses social skills.
    The drug cocktail just stones him into being a functional member of society. A zombie if you will.
    Just like drinking makes you more sociable at a party.
    That's not Josh. That's Josh on drugs.
    Contact me if you want.
