I'm a DMDD parent just like you. My son was diagnosed at age 9 and we went through the rages, 911 calls, school suspensions, medication trial & error, IEPs, therapists... all of it. He is now 15 and stable. He still has some mood wobbles occasionally but he has friends, participates in school sports, and even goes to sleep-away camp. I'm here to tell you - there is hope! Practice lots of self-care, take breaks, and talk to other DMDD families. We'll help you get through it.
