Does anyone have an older child (7-12) who has mental health issues?
My oldest is 10yrs old and just received a diagnosis of schizoaffective disorder. We have been on this journey with him since he was 5yo. Thankfully we finally have a diagnosis. My 8yo has been diagnosed with anxiety, major depression, psychosis. They both have the same dad and went through the same major stressor 6 yes ago. My youngest two (current husband) were both born with a cleft lip and palate and both have the same genetic deletion which causes low muscle tone and such. Last year my 3yo was diagnosed with autism. So I understand the medical end of it too:) just really don't have anyone to talk to. Just moved here less than a year ago.
Hi Jennifer.. I personally do not.. I hope someone sees this thread that might be able to relate to you a little better! But let us know if we can help too :) So happy you are here!

I am a SAHM to my 4 wonderful kids, all of them are special needs. I am always super busy chauffeuring them all to and from appointments and therapy sessions, along with day to day chores and life.
