Sometimes they wonder in there own world. Having Aspergers can be different in many ways, Aspergers is when your child is having emotional problems maybe even getting embarrassed, shy, difficult education maybe even speech problems.
Avatar n tn He has been a heavy bed wetter his entire life though in the past 6 months or so it has become more and more infrequent to the point where he only has an accident once every few weeks now. My wife has mentioned ADHD before but my son has never been hyperactive in any way. In fact its just the opposite, he is beyond mellow. Recently I read about ADHD PI and this seems to describe my son perfectly.
419446 tn?1212545977 He wasnt hurting anyone, and he was ( is ) an amazing happy boy. For 4 years then after, as soon as the first impateint techer said ADHD...I had to fight the school about medicating my son( which I refused to do) Oh and the funny thing was in gr 3 ( same teacher from JK, lucky kid) had again suggested he was now withdrawn & asked how much medication he was on...assuming that he WAS on meds.
Avatar m tn - this excessive worrying has caused me to ruin several relationships because I get paranoid and let me thoughts out. This shows me as being untrusting which I am not I just cant stop worrying about "what if". - I have constant urges to be doing something. I have a lot of trouble sitting still. Because if this I have taken up smoking. I believe I could easily quit if I didnt have these constant needs to be doing something.
Avatar f tn Hello, in a way, ADHD is a problem of immaturity, because individuals with ADHD have a harder time doing the things we associate with maturity (such as tolerating boredom, persevering and being efficient). Young adults with ADHD are typically less 'mature' than their same aged peers, and it can be intensely frustrating for the person with the disorder and her loved ones (as you noted). Though it may take longer, most people with ADHD do find their niche.
284002 tn?1244551155 I was recently diagnosed with ADHD and after looking back on my life and seeing the impact it has had on me I'm very sad in fact I'm crying right now. I am in the process of finding an ADHD coach here in Boston. I started 200mg Provigil and felt a little "out of it" or "foggy" I had stopped and just got back on 100mg of Bupropion and .5 Clonopen. So I stopped the Provigil. Has anyone withADD - ADHD had any luck with any other medications or treatments?

Avatar f tn my boyfriend of a year and a half has had adhd since he was younger. he is 24 now. i've always known he's had it, but i guess i never really looked up the symptoms and what exactly it did to a person. we've had a lot of relationship problems for the past year. the first 6 months of the relationship were amazing. he was so into the relationship, he was always doing little things for me and bringing me little gifts and making me things and being the best boyfriend in the world.
1454650 tn?1285253363 I have ADHD and it has impacted on all aspects of my life (relationships, jobs etc.) but what I didn't reckon on was the impact it was have on my life as a new father. I have gotten worse since my daughter wa sborn a year ago. I love her very much but I am finding it extremely and increasingly difficult to cope. I fly off the handle more than i ever did before. I can't stand her crying and screaming, it feels like my head is going to inplode.
327385 tn?1378364331 A person with undiagnosed ADHD or ADD can react like your daughter is doing. Basically, she is giving up - an thats not good. An appointment with a specialist is highly recommended. I also recommend that you start reading up on ADHD to see how it affects kids. A good starting point is here. There is lots of info here so take your time reading it. She also sounds like she might have Sensory Processing (or Integration) disorder.
Avatar n tn Inattention, Hyperactivity and Impulsivity. It might be that the psychologist was struck by your son's level of impulsivity and on that basis thought that a trial on medication might be useful. It does not sound like the behavior is symptomatic of mood disorder. It would not be at all surprising if the major psychological characteristic of your son is his impulse-ridden personality. Systematic plans for behavior management, such as you described, are highly recommended for such children.
Avatar n tn what do you think my son id feeling since he has adhd n he is three years old
Avatar n tn Hello, I suffer from anxiety and OCD and likely have ADHD. I believe I have ADHD as years ago when I was in primary school the teaches told my parents that I should go on medication to focus due to my disruptions in class and I was placed in a "special" class for a number of years. My parents refused to put me on medication. I simply came accostomed to my way of thinking. Over the years I suffered from restless energy and did not focus very well.
Avatar m tn What to do after you just say NO to Ritalin when a child has been diagnosed with attention deficit disorder (ADD) and (ADHD) or some other learning disability. And even if you don’t, ADD is a growing problem that you should be aware of some estimate that as many as one in five U.S. children are on Ritalin that’s 6 million kids.
Avatar n tn My son is 11 years old. He was diagnosed with ADHD when he was 7 years old. He also has a learing disability. He is on 10MG of ritalin a day. He is very outgoing both personally and sports, plays on a team for basketball, football, soccer, baseball and skies. I am very active in my community, he accompanies me to many functions and people just love him. The big problem lies in long term relationships.
Avatar f tn I recently went to my doctor for a routine ailment and he questioned whether I had ever been assessed for ADHD given some traits he noticed during our many consultations over the years. Long story short I went to a psychiatrist and got a definitive diagnosis of ADHD and began taking dexamphetamine (dexedrine i believe is the US "version").
Avatar m tn Doctor: ADHD Does Not Exist Dr. Richard Saul March 14, 2014 Over the course of my career, I have found more than 20 conditions that can lead to symptoms of ADHD, each of which requires its own approach to treatment. Raising a generation of children—and now adults—who can't live without stimulants is no solution.

Avatar f tn Children who display ADHD and receive treatment can be expected to enjoy normal social relationships. It is untreated ADHD that can invite relationship difficulties. If a youngster truly displays ADHD, and the condition is treated with success, and the child still shows relationship problems, some other concern besides ADHD is likely present.
2080300 tn?1349059153 only got 1/3 of my diagnosis right, and i also have ADHD!!??? From what he tells me, I'll be a new person! My family can't wait! I guess it's a good thing, but all I keep thinking about are the lost jobs, relationships and opportunities. I'm 44 and NOW I find a Dr. that may have it right? Anyone else have all 3? Will the ADHD meds (Guanfacine) help me after all these years?

Avatar m tn I had many problems growing up and still do to this very day. I was diagnosed with ADHD when I was 14 years old. I started taking prescription medication at that time and continued to do so for several years. At some point I just decided to quit taking my medication. It just felt like it wasnt doing what is was suppose to. Where initially it did calm me down and allow me to focus on things it became to a point where it was almost like pure speed for me.
Avatar m tn Hi I just wanted to say that I have ADHD and am now 36. from my personal experience ADHD can make you feel very isolated and out of sync with people. As a child every day I felt that I was trying and trying and always messed up. In the end I was just so frustrated (no ones fault i know). In the end I just exploded and became a rebel. I am also on ritalin. I have found that if you don't have a break it kind of stops working. Does your son have breaks?
Avatar f tn You might enjoy reading a book by a UC Berkley honors student with severe ADHD about growing up with ADHD. The book is called - "ADHD and Me, What I learned from lighting fires at the dinner table," by Blake Taylor. For a different perspective check out - And for a pretty mature, but kind of chaotic view (well the creator has ADD) check out http://jeffsaddmind.
Avatar n tn We have met with a behavior person who says its most likely ADHD- I am wondering if there could be other things going on. Home life is very stable- 2 parents 1 brother 1 sister -he is the oldest Not wanted to use meds but I will if I have to.
