... one more month, he has two weeks left. took him off, when will the depression lift?
My son was on anti- hyper medication from the age 5. When we finally decided to take him off of the meds at the age of 12, we had a lot of issues in the beginning. He would have mood swings and outbursts and get very angry about anything big or small. We thought about putting him back on the meds but then found a therapist who suggested we involve him in an activity that could vent his frustration in a positive way. He joined karate and loved it. His attitude completely changed and his outbursts and anger issue got less and less. He put all of his energy into karatw. It has really helped him in a positive way. He is now 17 & says karate and martial arts saved his life.
If your son has been diagnosed with Bipolar... it is important to get him treated and almost always means some form of medication. As far as I know... this condition doesn't get better by itself and leaving him untreated could be detrimental to his personal sense of well being. What is your feeling on this? Bipolar is a whole lot different than just being depressed...
