Well today we got the answer about S that we’ve been waiting on for 2 weeks. She has been officially diagnosis with ADHD. So now what? Where do we go from here? Its deflating, but not the end of the world. Hopefully knowing what exactly is wrong will help ease the stress that has built in our home and at her school.
So now what, do we start her on medication? Everyone has there own opinions on behavioral medication. I’ve listened to plenty of opinions, and I’ve taken many with a grain of salt. I’ve always said “no, I won’t do it”, but until you are in the position that you are now having to make this decision about medication, you really don’t know what to do.
So at this point we have decided to at least try medication for S. We’ve had some people close to us not agree with this decision, and some applaud us for it. But really she is our daughter we decide what is best for her. Best case scenario is that this helps her, worse case is that it doesn’t. Then you have the middle ground where it doesn’t effect her at all. What do we do then? Well that is something we can’t really think about until we know if the medication we are putting her on works or doesn’t.
Do you have ADHD? Let me know you experience in the comments bellow?
