19yr Old Daughter Newly Diagnosed - A Million Questions
Our 19 yr old daughter was recently diagnosed. She took the IVA+Plus and came up as severely impaired in every category.
As her family, we are struggling with what this all means. We feel like this explains a lot of her behavior and it’s a relief to know why.
We are having a hard time finding a psychiatrist that we feel good about and she is currently not on any meds. She has taken a friends Adderol and Vyvanse (we do not approve of this) and now has seen how she feels while on it. She said all her thoughts go in “little boxes” in her brain and she can “get things done” and then sleep at night.
We have a month until our next try - this one has been recommended to us and is hard to get into.
I would love any thoughts, input or advice you could give us.
This is all so new to us!
Thanks in advance…
