Avatar f tn From personal observations, I think it is harder for really smart kids to deal with ADHD. The sense of frustration that they feel is huge, and this can progress to destructive behavior. All of the things that you have listed - I have seen in ADHD kids. What you need to do is to start to research what ADHD is and how to deal with the consequences of it. Understanding ADHD really makes a big difference in how you deal with the child. I mentioned the following books in a post below.
303824 tn?1294875001 Just another helpful thing for ADHD. I read that listening to classical music is very soothing for a child with ADHD. I recently got a CD for my son and he listens to it at night and it really helps him sleep. Also, I give him 3mg melatonin 1 hour before bedtime and this really helps him calm down.
Avatar f tn //www.healing-arts.org/children/ADHD/treatments.htm Wellbutrin is used to treat depression, not ADD. If ADD is the source of your depression, than you would definitely want to find a specific treatment for that. Kind of wonder what kind of a doc you are seeing. You might also want to check out this site. Its for adults with ADD and pretty well runs through all kinds of adult ADD stuff. Its kinda of helter-skelter, but the writer is ADD, and it tends to fit his personality I think.
Avatar m tn If this only happened once and if you did not swallow the lead - I really doubt it. A doctor could do a blood test and let you know for sure. The link I posted will tell you more than you want to know about lead poisoning. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lead_poisoning I would concentrate more on dealing with your ADD. This is a good article dealing with the benefits of exercise. - http://www.medscape.
Avatar f tn Most schools are not allowed to suggest something like ADHD or ADD because then they are liable for treatment, etc. Be very happy that he has supportive teachers. The LD is very serious and does need to be concentrated on. The question is what is causing it. If it is being caused by ADHD, its like a dog chasing his tail - you will never catch up with it. With a lot of after school tutoring, summer help, and very understanding teachers - he could hang in there.
Avatar f tn Ouch, 16 years. Hopefully, it was not all for nothing - there had to have been some good times in there! But to the kid. I am also the CL on the ADHD forum. When I see posts about kids that have given up - many times (not always) its because they have ADHD, ADD, or another learning disability. In other words, he may be giving up because he has had years of failure and is fed up with it. I have seen many, many kids like that. This is just one link that might help - http://www.
Avatar n tn When I got a diagnosis I felt as if a policeman had turned up at my door and told me my son was dead. I grieved for the life I thought he would have for a long time. But in reality my son had never changed, only my perception of him had had to change. Other people are relieved to get a diagnosis. Your reaction is normal to you. You talk about OCD, but you mention it in regard to changing a routine.
Avatar n tn My son is currently taking Zoloft for OCD, Tourettes, ADHD, and anxiety. he recently had strep and pneumonia and set him back with his progress about a year in his treatments. Major OCD and Anxiety issues. to the point of vomiting because he doesnt want to take his pills, go to school, doesnt want anything close around his neck, doesnt want his pants buttoned, etc. Its just going to get worse if i dont get his meds in him. So, my question is, does Zoloft have a taste to it?
607502 tn?1288251140 I like Boxing Day when its all over and I can get rid of the decorations and the house gets back to some kind of normality. I put the big act on for the actual day because of the children, but admit to spending many minutes in the bathroom throughout the day gritting my teeth and crying, splashing on the cold water and then presenting myself back down the stairs.
Avatar m tn An occupational therapist evaluates for sensory integration disorder and then does therapy for it. My son is like a different kid after being diagnosed and beginning occupational therapy. He is doing fantastic now at 6 years old. They can do amazing things with children these days. So please google this and see what you think. The other thought I had was anxiety, severe anxiety. This would be a psychiatric diagnosis and treatment would be necessary. Something to also think about.
Avatar n tn Good luck!!!! Although this year my husbands side of the family has decided to only buy for children and all the adults will get together this weekend and draw names from a hat. Who we pick is who we buy for. We set a limit of 30 dollars. That should be fun.
Avatar f tn Not trying to scare you or anything, but it's important that you understand there is no cure for Chiari. You can take medicines for different symptoms and sometimes, if it starts causing serious problems, they may think it important to operate. But either with or without an operation, you'll need to take care of yourself and get regular MRI's. I understand that an MRI every 2 or 3 years is normal. Ask your doctor though - I'm not an expert or in the medical field, just a fellow Chiarian.
Avatar n tn I'm going for allergy testing the end of the month. I do have a cat and bird which I have had for years -- my house is clean...not spotless...because after 4 months of feeling like this I really don't feel like cleaning it! I've got an air cleaner I keep running in my bedroom - but I can't tell that it's helped. I just don't know. The only comfort I can give is you're not alone.
Avatar m tn I have several things diagnosed as being wrong with my brain that i've held back from stating on here as i have literally NO idea if they are connected and i didn't want to cause undue stress (especially for parents of children suffering from this). But now i genuinely feel revealing more about my medical history would make my position on things clearer. I hope it's used as general info.
162948 tn?1205256292 Well my husband and i split up about 2 months after baby # 3 was born and i have been with a new man for nearly a yr now he has no children and adores mine I really want to be able to have a child with him and I am now wanting the iud out to make that happen Crazy to want baby # 4 probably but feel strongly about doing it. This week I had a cyst rupture on my ovary and discovered several on my other ovary which doing research has told me the mirena is probably to blame for this.
