As a young boy, my grandson was diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and Bipolar disorder. He was hospitalized at least twice a year from the age of six until he was eleven years old. He was placed in private schools because he was unable to function in a public school After a severe bout of depression and another hospitalization, he was put on Lithium. This cause kidney, thyroid, and liver shutdown.  At that point, I had had it with meds.

After searching on the computer, I came across Boston Neurofeedback. I called them and made an appointment. Dr. Myer and David Myer did a brain mapping and the question about his bipolar diagnosis began. During neurofeedback  treatment, Dr. Myer noticed something about his sleep pattern and suggested a sleep study for pediatric obstructive sleep disorder. Sleep apnea in children can cause mood swings.My 300 pound grandson did have sleep apnea. Later, it was determined that he had problems with his adenoids and one enlarged tonsil. That was his so-called “bipolar.”

Today my grandson is medication free and has lost all of his excess weight. He has had no hospitalizations since he has been off his meds. In fact, there is no bipolar! If it weren’t for Dr. Myer and David, he would have led a disastrous life. Instead, he is a normal,  happy kid.
