Single mom with a 9 year old boy. Son does not know his father (may never). Son has been taking medication for ADHD for a year and a 1/2, does remarkabley better in school while on meds. Doesn't have many friends where we live, or at school. He's very social, but has very low self esteem. Sometimes doesn't know when to stop - gets very hyper and excited and when other children get upset with him, his feelings are instantly hurt. Has mentioned on 2 occasions that he should just kill himself. Last 4 days it has been a constant of "I don't feel good about myself" "I don't feel good about my life" "I want a chance to start my life over" etc. Small family, no siblings for mom & my parents are having health problems of their own that they are focussing on. I've made an appt with the school counsellor, but I'm literally at a loss right now. Any advice? Anything would be appreicated. Thanks.
