951946 tn?1263568983 Just wanted to share some resources that I found invaluable on my TTC journey, that I hope would be of benefit and encouragement to others taking the holistic fertility route: Fully Fertile: A 12-Week Holistic Plan for Optimal Fertility by Elisabeth Heller and Tami Quinn http://www.pullingdownthemoon.com/ - Website of the authors of Fully Fertile. You can start a local book group to find other women who might be interested in going through the 12-week program with you.
Avatar n tn Sounds normal to me, to be honest. She's only 6------ it is difficult to block out all things and completely focus when in a noisy (which they all kind of are at that age) classroom. Is she doing fine with her work?? Is school coming to you with complaints? If not, then I would not make this into a big deal. If you think about it, we all have a subconsious as well that 'speaks' to us. Totally normal but a hard thing for a young child to verbalize.
572651 tn?1531002957 We now have a good Heath Page on WWW Resources that I would encourage you to look at, add/edit items, and post comments. These are the links that our members suggested would be useful. I am sure there are more - so feel free to add your comments and links under the appropriate section on the HP.
Avatar n tn Exactly, I cannot add anything to jaybay's post, except maybe this: Get on with it honey! God made you, and he don't make no junk! Brush the dust off your feet, don't feel sorry for yourself, and get started with your new life. As the saying goes; get busy living, or get busy dieing!
480448 tn?1426952138 I wanted to re-post this link to a health page I created listing anxiety resources. There are many many great books on this list. I cannot stress enough that the MORE work you put into treating your anxiety, the more successful you will be. You cannot expect to take a pill or go to therapy once a week (or less) and have it all figured out. If anyone has any books, sites, etc they have found helpful, let me know and I'll add it to the health page. Remember: you have to help yourself!
Avatar n tn Some very good points by specialmom. And yes, his age as well as the medications you have tried would help. Yes, medications are different. They range from stimulant to non stimulant. From extended release to ones with a much shorter time span. It certainly sounds like you should be getting some more information from your doctor.
Avatar f tn It's been helping a little but I think she needs more of a boost. I had ADD problems aswell as 2 other of my siblings, the sister I look out for is only a half sister, but she could have picked it up from my dad anyway. I talked to my dad about getting her ADD medication and he fears it will make her worse. 15 years ago my brother took ADD medication that had some weird side effects and my dad doesn't want my sister to go through the same thing.
Avatar n tn oops...forgot to add the link to the Drs list....love chiari brains...lol... http://www.medhelp.
480448 tn?1426952138 As people add suggestions, I'll edit the health page and put any additional resources on the list. http://www.medhelp.org/health_pages/Mental-Health/Anxiety-and-Panic-Resources--Books--Websites--Self-Help-Programs/show/1285?
Avatar f tn //www.additudemag.com/topic/adult-add-adhd/life-organization.html My favorite adult ADD site is - http://jeffsaddmind.com/for-first-time-visitors it will keep you occupied for a long time. This site covers Complementary and Alternative Treatments http://www.help4adhd.org/en/treatme/complementary/WWK6 As far as listening to people. Just be honest. My last principal had ADHD. We would start conversations and they would spiral everywhere.
Avatar m tn Once I get my results back they'll email a confirmation to me - will I still need to stop by a physician with this to get prescribed anti-viral meds? 2. Any good web resources on dealing and coping? I'm at the point where I'm ready to deal with this and continue on - it's taken a psychological toll, sure, but hasn't destroyed the vast majority of my life. I've been to www.racoon.com a few times, looking for additional forums, etc. for when the time comes to have "the talk.
Avatar m tn Almost all information for ADD/ADHD is on kids but according to MedHelp :: or about ten million adults. With that many adults affected why is 99% of the information only about kids? Where can info on adult ADD/ADHD available?
Avatar f tn So I have four children and had a suprize pregnancy, im about a month and a half. I suffer bad from add! I am lost without my adderall! Does anyone know any safe things I could take or do to help me get focused? My house is a mess, my laundry is falling behind and I have a million appts and activities coming up I cant miss.
Avatar f tn 17 yr old daughter and possible ADD. Should we go to a pscychiatrist, pcsychologist with comp testing or a Neurologist exp with ADD? I understand she needs testing and not just questioners to fill out for an accurate diegnosis as to what the proplem is.
1523918 tn?1291354756 I have been on a variety of ADD/ADHD meds since I was 7yrs old. I have gone off of them for summers a couple times but I have a hard time during school. Due to bouts of depression and because I am now 20 and not a child anymore, my doctor said that I should be on strattera. I was for 3 years but it's so expensive that I went off it a few months ago. Now I am so fidgety and I have trouble reading textbooks (paying attention, not unable to read) and forgetting to complete tasks.
Avatar f tn I have a 13yr who has ADD and CAPD. He is falling way behind in school and now doesn't even want to go. His grades are awful and honestly I don't think he cares. He refuses medicine. Which his doctor said he is old enough to make that decision. I was considering homeschooling him, but not sure if he would even try. Anyone with any advice would help.
Avatar f tn Your family doctor is not the best for helping you with this. You need to see a psychiatrist for a diagnosis, and they are most knowlegable when it comes to these types of medications. Then see what type of psychologist he recommends. You're not on a medication specifically for ADD/ADHD. Ziac is for high blood pressure and I doubt you have this at 20! Do you know why it was given to you? Imitrex is for migraines, do you get migraine headaches?
Avatar f tn I forgot to mention the peeling, smelly feet, with no other symptoms of athlete's foot, no burning/itching, etc. Without knowing any of this, would she be diagnosed with ADD? How much of the ADD symptoms would go away with changing her diet? Teacher recommends testing for learning disabilities. Would malnutrition be detected in any of these tests?
Avatar f tn I have a five year old who was diagnosed at 2 with High Functioning Autism. The past year or so though hes been showing signs of ADD or ADHD. His Dr has prescribed him Risperdal because and medication isnt something she just randomly hands out so I know he needs it. I just have a few questions that wont be answered until he sees another Dr which I am waiting for a referral to. My questions are: Whats the difference between ADD/ADHD?
Avatar f tn My 9 year old daughter was diagnosed yesterday with Aspergers and severe ADD. I'm feeling very overwhelmed and not sure what I should be doing. We have no kind of treatment plan at the moment because the doctor wants to get info from her teacher about 3-4 weeks after school starts. Is there something I should be doing now? I'm just feeling lost.
877228 tn?1240233714 He is 10yrs ld and had ADD. He has been taking medication since he was 4 maybe 5 he is on 2 tablets of Ritilon *not sure on spelling* a day. 1 in the moning after breakfast and one after lunch. Up until about 1yr ago we never had any issues at all with him, but lately he has been very out of control. Almost a year ago he tried to strangle his sister at the time she was 14 months old. about 3 mnths ago he sat on his younger sisters face while she was scraming for air, she was 7 months old.
Avatar m tn //www.help4adhd.org/en/about/what/WWK8. And this site is also pretty good for adult ADHD - http://www.webmd.com/add-adhd/guide/adhd-adults - It should give you a pretty idea if its possible you have or could have it. If this stuff sounds like you could have AD/HD, then your next step is to inform your self as much as possible about AD/HD and then find a good professional to help you. Remember that something like meds are only part of the answer.
Avatar f tn My son has ADD or ADHD. I have seen it both ways in his chart. I have tried to figure out which he has..but the docotor who diagnosed him..is no longer within reach...I have tried to read about it...there's alot of info. My son is hyper--but I feel that his level of hyperness is normal for his age. Can anyone break this difference down for me and tips for each would be welcome.
Avatar f tn even social aquaintences seem to ask if I have ADD/ADHD. After talking to some friends with ADD I am convinced that some sort of treatment/medication would greatly help my daily function. How do I begin to see about this? What kind of doctor do I see. Is he going to laugh at me as an adult asking about an illness that seems to be diagnosised in childhood? I just don't even know where to start. Do you have a good reccomendation on how to begin, what I'm sure will be somewhat of a process?
Avatar m tn This, of course, is not a full proof sign that she does have ADD, but it is something to think about. Finally, you can not say that what worked for you will work for her. You are not the same. And, by the way, strong intelligence is fairly normal for those with ADHD. Some learn to cope and many do not and pay for it in later years. I can give you many more resources if you want them. Thanks for asking such a good question!
Avatar f tn So I have known for a long time my was add but since other wasn't affecting his grades the doctor dint want to put him on meds. Well other started affecting his grades this year and they put him on a slow release Ridalin. He was on it for two weeks and was doing great but was having stomach problems because of it (he already takes acid reflux meds) so the doc didn't want tobleave hint on it. So he had home stop taking it until our next appointment which is the 26 of this month.
Avatar f tn I have a 13 year old boy, who is very intelligent, and was recently diagnosed with ADD. I have been going around and around trying to figure out what is best for him. Do I prescribe him prescription drugs and take the risk of him becoming hooked on them, or do I try and medicate him naturally with homeopathic medicine? I see the advantages in both, but not sure what is actually best. His grades and behavior have definitely fallen drastically!
Avatar n tn DO you think your son could qualify for a CHIPS card through your Dept of health and Human Resources so you can get him the meds that work best for him? That might be an avenue to explore.
