Customer: replied 3 years ago.

i looked up signs of children with mental health problems wrote them down with details of what was happening i spoke to the school and told him about her work i told him it was heredity i got off the phone from him this evening and he said this is normal and all kids go through this she wont go out side because she thinks she will be kidnapped i cant go shopping because she has panic attacks in shops he is having a meeting with me next week to talk again with me and my daughter and the school say because her work is fine there is no problems but they only see her for 6 hrs aday that dont see that she wont sleep and they dont se the panic attacks

So he doesn't believe from what you've told him that she has an obvious problem?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

yes please can you type what you think it is so i can print it off and take it to the school chms and my doctor i would be really grateful for an experts opinion

No problem but tell me a bit more please. Why does she say she might be kidnapped? What exactly happens with her panic attacks?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

i don't know she hasn't played outside for 2 years we live on a green she walks right by me not leaving my side if her younger sister is in front or behind she gets teary telling her to walk with us cause she thinks someone is going to take her ,the panic attacks she says i want to go i want to go she cant breath shes crying uncontrollably the mood swings are up and down when shes happy shes happy but one little thing can set her off she hits things says things she cant remember they just come out her mouth i want to push you in the road and kill you i hate you these things happen daily she needs to be told shes special and well done and phase everyday

OK Nikie. Of course I can't fully diagnose her online but here's my presumptive diagnosis.
1) Bipolar disorder with manic or hypomanic episodes
2) Possible antisocial personality disorder
3) Possible paranoid schizophrenia (but without actual hallucinations--either
audio or visual--that's a bit hard to nail down)
She absolutely needs a full and thorough evaluation by a child psychologist and will no doubt need therapy sessions and possibly medication

My pleasure but be sure to let me know how it goes
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

she has been diagnosed with anxiety disorder which coincides with mood disorder that cannot diagnose a bipolar or personality disorder untill she hits her teens thankyou for your help as they listened to me once I had spoken to you
