I was "abused" as a child but I enjoyed it

My first sexual memory I can remember was when I was very young, around 5 years old. My next door neighbour would babysit me when my parents were away. On evenings when my parents would get back very late (they worked very late hours both as doctors) my neighbour (perhaps 12-14 years at the time?) would ask me if I wanted to do some "grown-up" activities, telling me that I had to keep it top secret and not tell anybody and that I could stop at any time if I didn't like it. Obviously wanting to know what he meant I was very curious and went along. He would pull down my pants and m

Suggested Questions And Answer :

I would like to get off my meds.

This is a good question for you Doctor and not this forum.  If you don't like your doctors treatment plan, seek out another professional who can evaluate your situation and make changes that will benefit you.  I had quite a few doctors until I found one with a great track record in dealing with bpd.  He was able to change my meds until my mood swings disapeared. I will pray that the Lord will give you guidance in helping you come up with the perfect plan to add stability to your life.  Take care of yourself.

Bipolar disorder?

Print this out and take it to a doctor, who will likely refer you to a psychiatrist (or should refer you to a psychiatrist). Don't let a general doctor give you an antidepressant without a mood stabilizer as it can make bipolar people manic or cause rapid cycling. Another thing you may want to check into is borderline personality disorder as many of the symptoms are similar, but this is common in people with a history of horrible sexual abuse. You can have both disorders too. If you are bipolar there are medicines and certain things you can learn to do that can help. Some of them are easier like keeping a consistant time where you go to bed and get out of bed (regardless of whether or not you are sleeping) for example. It is also knowing your triggers and avoiding them. There are books out there that will help you learn this stuff. If you are borderline there is something called Dialectic Behavioural Therapy that is quite helpful (medication is sometimes use for BPD, but generally it is something that therapy deals with) The reason I mention BPD is because your episodes are pretty short. Usually, not always though, episodes last 4 days minimum, and if you are rapid cycling (going up and down in a short period of time) those will be in discreet episodes as well. Too your downs are listed as a 5 and quite often bipolar depression rests closer to a 3, and has suicidal thoughts. Again is doesn't have to - you have to have thoughts of death which you have. It is a possibility in my mind based on the limited information I see in an post, not a slam dunk for sure you've got it. And it would likely be bipolar 2 not 1 as you don't describe a truly manic moment in there. That's why a psychiatrist is your best bet as they will spend an hour with you most likely talking about a lot of different things and be able to tease out a diagnosis. It may take a couple of times of seeing them too. They may want to see you in the different states.

Is it possible that my adult con has Asperger's

The only way to get a definate answer is for your son to be assessed by professionals who are experienced in diagnosing autistic spectrum disorders including Aspergers.  However from reading your post, it does sound very familiar. I think alot of parents struggle with the 'spiky profile' of those on the spectrum.  They are brilliant at some things and yet struggle with other things we might consider simple.  But for them it isn't. If you google DSM IV you can look at the diagnostic criteria for both autism and aspergers and see if that helps. My son also has a brilliant rote memory.  He only needs to watch a DVD once to know the dialogue and will repeat it to himself and replay it in his head.  He is also very good at puzzles and all types of construction.   As he did reasonably well academically, it might be that he is more likely aspergers as those with autism tend to have greater difficulties with both language and with the concept of alot of academic work.  My son is HFA.  He is verbal.  He has semantic pragmatic speech disorder (takes language literally), and is also echolalic (repeating TV/DVD dialogue).   Those on the spectrum usually have sensory differences eg. over or under sensitive to touch, smell, taste, texture, sound.  So they may cover their ears at certain sounds, or appear deaf, complain about smells or textures of food, avoid clothes with tags etc.   Anything sudden or unpredictable can really upset them and send them into a rage.  I can quite imagine my own son hitting someone who jumped him! There can also be difficulties with any changes in routine, or expectations not being met. They tend to have alot of attention and focus for the things that interest them, and therefore you have to use their interests as motivators. From a social point of view, it is hard for him to attempt to interact when he has no insight or knowledge into what to say or do.  All of that needs to be taught to him.   How old is your son now? What country are you in? I am in the UK, and if it were my son I would probably approach my doctor and Social Services to find out what supports there are for adults with aspergers in my area.  Bearing in mind that you also need to talk with your son because he may/may not even be interested in a formal diagnosis.  I would also try to find out about adult support groups as he may feel more at ease with other adults similar to himself and they may well form social groups around their interests. Difficulties with Theory of Mind can make someone on the spectrum appear cold or removed.  But it simply that they cannot assimilate all the information we take in and then deduce another person's point of view from it.  You cannot empathise if you cannot imagine their situation.  But they can be taught ways of using information available to them to draw conclusions, but again it has to be taught to them.  I am not sure which professional would do this.  In the UK with my son it would be the Speech and Language Therapist as they are also responsible for social interaction and life skills. I don't know if any of that helped.  Please post back if you have further questions.

I was "abused" as a child but I enjoyed it

I think you were young and even though it felt good, that you didn't know any better. Things just led to another after the initial few moments. Why do you want to get it off your chest now? Are you thinking more with what happened back then? Are you male or female as I couldn't gauge that from your post?

is it ok to switch or just pull him off

It's okay to switch medicines as long as the switch is gradual.  Consider decreasing Vyvanse to the lowest possible dose, then stop it, then start Concerta at the lowest possible dose.  Monitor your son closely and perhaps ask his teachers how things are going at school.

Adult Aspergers? Bad doctor?Neither? Both?

...After a panic phone call from my sib's now grown child, I (and one of my sons) visited their home in 2005 to help my sib get ready to move out pending sale of the home. What I found was shocking. The stories were equally so. What was MOST disturbing, was the degree of DIS-organization I saw. I was appalled that my son had to witness this....but that's MY problem, not germaine to this story! Fort Knox is not nearly as locked down. There were locks EVERYWHERE, but the really bad part is that many location s had MULTIPLE locks, because the original lock keys had been lost, misplaced or STOLEN. Yes, despite all this 'security', "break-ins and thefts" were routine....supposedly. (In all the stories and professions, replete with photo's etc., I never saw even ONE shred of PROOF that any of this was really happenning,....yet I WANTED to believe.....rather than to think they had become psychotic,delusional and parannoid as a result of the "medication". I could detail the next 6 years almost day-to-day, as this sib has become a member of my household due to an inability to get along with their grown child (who is btw- a successful pharmacist in a western state). They tried living together in the childs home, but my sib kept doing things like opening up walls, convinced there were hidden surveillance 'bugs' and camera's all over the house. My sib also quit venturing out except late at night to shop, when there were less people around in the stores, etc. In short, the kid just couldn't deal with it anymore, so I stepped in to 'help'.....(cont'd)

   You are lucky that you have the ability to home school.  Not everyone has the time or resources.  A few suggestions - two great books.     Sandra Rief’s "How to Reach and Teach Children with ADD/ADHD".  is an extremely detailed book on teaching kids with ADHD.  It gives a lot of very detailed methods.     The second is "The ADD/ ADHD Answer book," by Susan Ashley.  While it is more general, it certainly is an easier read and would be my first recommendation (and maybe only one) if you were not home schooling.  This book also includes information about OCD, and the author states that is occurs in about 10 to 17% of the kids with ADHD (p.67).   Hope this helps
