Tell your story here... Nicholas a 10 years old wonderful boy that was born with MoodDisorder . For 10 years Dr.s have try to find medications and treatments to help Nicholas cope with his very disturbing anger episodes. Medication has help Nicholas manage his anger but not 100%. Due to his inability to control his anger nobody in our community park wants to play with him. As a parent seeing your kid loose friends day by day it breaks my heart because I also understand where the other kids are coming from. We need for scientists to find the cause of the condition to be able to help Nicholas 100% and help him be an avarage kid. Please help our scientists to keep looking for the cause of very disturbing behavior issues our kids are struggling with.
With alll my love to Nicholas. Your Mom Maggie
