We met with Dr. Reynolds this afternoon and while it was a positive visit, our lives are forever changed by the knowledge we gained.
I don’t have to energy to make a super detailed post about what happened but I’ll just to the chase and give you what I’ve got.
Today we learned that Gavin is officially diagnosed as a sociopath. This is a bit tricky because you can’t officially diagnosis someone as a sociopath until they are 18 years of age. However, if Gavin were 18 years old, he would be diagnosed as a sociopath.
I suppose that officially diagnosed is not accurate.
Let me instead say this. Today, Gavin’s long time psychiatrist has officially declared that if Gavin were 18 years old today, he would officially be diagnosed as a sociopath. Does that mean that he’s not a sociopath right now? No it doesn’t because he is.
His doctor says that he is absolutely, 100% certain that Gavin is a sociopath. When he turns 18, the diagnosis will go on paper. All parties and professionals involved, agree with this statement and concur.
This doesn’t exactly come as a shock because it’s been suspected for a very long time.
Everything has changed and we have a great many things to worry about and prepare for…
