Avatar f tn 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. Its worth your time to check them out. - "ADHD and Me, What I learned from lighting fires at the dinner table," by Blake Taylor.
899943 tn?1241924720 When I look back . It was misdignosed I was Bipolar . I had manic times more as a child . And I have my Pdoc , therapist , GPdoc all in same office . They all converse with my permission . That is all my Pdoc does is give meds. Therapist takes care of my head . My therapist has this forum site . She looks at my post and mood tracker . Like a journal . I also get racing thoughts . Doing meditation seems to be grounding !
Avatar n tn I know it is frustrating and you know he can do a lot more than he does but you also have to keep in mind that there is most likely an underlying cause to his actions that aren't in his control. If you push him too hard you may just push him away.
Avatar m tn Thank you for your reply... i have spend some time reading on it but i do have a question.... my son at times seems to be hearing rather well... for example the sound of the elevator opening when he is some 10m away..... and at times for example that clapping behind his head when he was not looking (he was watching tv at the time) where he totally ignored is sort of puzzled me....
Avatar f tn Now, there are also conditions like Sensory Processing Disorder and ADHD where kids will bully and not even realize that they are doing that. Is your son having any other problems in school? How are his grades? Does he have any strong sensitivities to textures, food, sound, etc. This link might be helpful to determine if he has something like ADHD. http://www.additudemag.com/quiz/9/question-1.html?
Avatar f tn When does he do the homework, it is a good idea to let him relax and have a snack when he comes in, we all like to unwind so let him choose when he gets the work done.So many parents nag at their children almost as soon as they get in from school, try to relax a bit then with the pressure off he will be happier to comply . Is therte any reason he doesnt like school, aare the Teachers good does he get on with them, he doesnt need a lot of friends a few is good.
303824 tn?1294875001 I have 5 children. Three have ADHD and one has ADD. My first child could not be tested until he was 4 years of age.They have all been on meds. We stopped all meds for all 4 of them. Two of them manage well without it. However,one son has suffered with ADHD a little more than the others. He is aggressive. When he isn't on his medication he doesn't sleep well. Every night he talks in his sleep sometimes hollers out loud. Gets up and walks through the house and I have to walk him back to bed.
Avatar f tn I was very good at it and played many important roles. I sometimes have trouble putting my words in the right order and only make brief eye contact with a few people. I have begun to cling to my parents and tell them everything. I feel like a burden to one of them who is sick and stressed. I have friends in college but not close friends. I spend most of my time alone and often go home on the weekends. Parties are scary unless I'm drunk, then they're a bit less scary.
Avatar f tn Went to new shrink yesterday. The 'intake coordinator' asked me a ton of questions about my health/family/etc. No tests were given to me to check for ADD. Shrink said I don't have ADD since I did well in high school and have two college degrees. Concluded that I need a MOOD STABILIZER ... WTH !!! Told me to reduce Paxil from 60mg to 40mg a day. Gave me script for LAMICTAL 25mg once a day in the morning and we would increase dosage as time goes on if needed. I have appointment at end of May.
1755089 tn?1376057155 Well I looked at the picture and yes my back does look like that just not a pronouced. I use to be 5'2'' and my pcp told me at my last apointment that I was 5 feet even! I'm to young to shrink!!!
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 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? Can it be crushed and added to liquids, so he can drink the liquid and not realize he's taking his meds. Will that reduce the consistency of the zoloft?
607502 tn?1288251140 There's so many of us with aunts, uncles, cousins, and second cousins that there are people to switch conversations with or who'll help in changing topics. One thing my family DOES have is a sense of humor. Maybe that's the key.
Avatar n tn It's really taking a hold of my life, I have severe fatigue and body aches all over my body, and i hardly ever have any energy. I can barely make it to school and back and I can barely do my job. I have been down so much these past 2 years with depression symptoms and axiety symptoms.
Avatar n tn that is all i can say so i dont get into trouble here. my dh showed me one of my xmas gifts as he always does!! he drives me crazy!!
Avatar f tn The symptoms are not extreme but knowing what to watch for is terribly important if they have the malformation. My daughter has struggled with ADD, my son with ADHD and my grandson has been diagnosed with Dyslexia and like his mother ADD. I actually have pinpointed the side of the family with the "migraines and even some with seizure activity. Of course, most information from drs. and text do not seem to think seizure activity can be part of the Chiari diagnosis.
162948 tn?1205256292 I'm 38 soon to be 39 and have been dating the greatest man I have ever met for the last year and a half and want to have a child with him something bad. I have 2 children from my previous marriage and my bf doesn't have any kids and he would be a wonderful dad. I was thinking about having my IUD taken out in August in hopes to get pregnant by December, but I'm scared that it will take too long to get pregnant and I don't want to get pregnant after 40. Are there any other older moms here?
Avatar n tn Now to the porn side of things, my Wife is 66 and has not been very interested in sex for about 5 years, I on the other hand still have a very active sex drive, I masturbate while watching porn up to 4 times a week, I have been doing that for the full five years. Somtimes I have sex with my Wife but because of looking at porn and masturbating I cannot come to orgasm inside her, she helps me masturbate afterwards.
