Why can’t they approve tests for those who suffer with chemical imbalance like they do with diabetes or other chemical deficiencies? They should be able to test the chemical levels and know what they need at any given moment! Imagine if they could take a test like a diabetic. I know from experience with my son, they trial and error method is scary at times, especially with children that aren’t able to communicate how the medications are making them feel. If we were able to take a quick test and know they needed a specific chemical that day and then give them only that and not all the unnecessary crap that they get given. I know this isn’t as easy as I would like it to be but watching my son go through medically enduced rages and blackouts as a child was horrible and he was a very good communicator. I work with other parents that are trying to be their children’s advocate with the doctors and the school and the stories I hear bring me to tears. When will we truly get these battling with Mental Illness what they need to take control of their illness so they feel strong and less like a zombie because that is their only option today? Raise awareness and find the answers to truly support those in need.
