Re: bi-polar child?

Hi. Has your daughter been diagnosed with bipolar? I can relate to some of it. My 8-year-old daughter may have bipolar disorder (I hope not). She has been so emotional these past few week, screaming and crying about something very insignificant for hours, and then suddenly a switch is turned, and she is giddy and silly and talking fast. She has been showing her 'silly' moods at school and has become fixated on things. She had these mood swings about a year ago when we tried Concerta, and she became so agitated and moody, so the doctor took her off of it. She is on Celexa for anxiety, and I am worried this triggered this. I have bipolar disorder myself, so maybe I am a little paranoid about it, but I worry she will have to go through what I've gone through.

Re: bi-polar child?

She hasn't been diagnosed, we are still waiting to see somebody, but she will have a really emotional temper tantrum or outburst and then will act like nothing ever happened. She doesn't talk fast because she has a language problem. But her moods are driving me nuts, its like walking on egg shells around her and you never know what is going to set her off. What do you mean by fixated on stuff? What kinds of things and how intense is it? My daughter has been completely engrossed in dogs and littlest pet shops for the past couple of years, I mean, she draws them, writes sentences in school about them, looks at them on the computer, in books, etc., she even drew a p;icture of her friends family and they were all dogs.
