I don't know what to do anymore. I have brought her for every test , she goes to theropy, but she still has not gotten control of her self. Her social skills are very poor as she is unable to make friends. She want to be friend with everyone, and trys hard but the children seem to shy away from her, becouse they are unsyre of howshe will be. What can I do to help my daughter have friends that want to play with her and not resent her?

I know exactly how you feel, My daughter has ADHD and Bi-polar as well, and is in the same situation as your daughter when it comes to friends. she wants to have friends, but because she is so unstable, all the kids do is tease her and make fun of her, which makes my daughter worse, and becomes violent, which brings her back to why the kids dont like her and tease her...its a vicious circle. We had her in theropy, but was advised that because the adhd and bi-polar are not things she can control or LEARN to control, the theropy would not help. We put her on Rtilan....after lots of research. It helps her to control her emotions, which in turn helps her with relationships with other children, which in turn helps her self esteem. Your daughter has an illness that is beyond her control, and theropy alone does nothing, its not like its a behavioural problem that she can change. My husband and I have done A LOT of research on the matter, and I know that medication is a cliche, but in this case, it is all there is. Just think of how this problem is effecting you daughters self esteem...she has no friends because she is "bad" (for lack of a better word) but she cant help it, its just the way she is.....she can control herself, she cant LEARN to control herself...she is missing that function in her brain. I suggest talking to your doctor/theripist about getting an assesment done, if you havnt already.

Wow, im so sorry. Have you ever heard of attachment disorder? my son sees an attachment therapist. My son and I never fully attached. He is overly emotional, and has a hard time making and keeping friends also.
