My 9 year old was diagnosed last year with moderate adhd. His meds is helping him quite well. I was wondering how much research is being done on the causes of all of these behavior and learning disorders? It just seems the more communities I see for these types of problems, it's overwhelming the percentage of children are turning up with these problems. It's very disheartning to see.
It makes you wonder how many of these children will grow up to lead confident lives. I know it is heartbreaking to watch my son struggle with his condition. I am afraid it is causing some depression. He doesn't understand how the meds helps him completely. He will get frustrated and tell me that I don't like the real him so I give him the medicine to change him. It makes me so sad because we have explained and his Dr. has explained over and over how the meds helps him.
I love him so much. and I have to remember that during some of his most frustrating times, all that really helps his a big tight hug.
