I were thinking alot if I must post this......but at the end I thought we are mature enough to discuss it..... I am EXAUSTED after a discussion this morning with a mom for an HOUR at the school..... I referred her to my difficult child psychiatrist one month ago...her daughter, also 8 yrs old suffers from ADHD.....She went, was very impressed and started medications...... School started today after almost a month break! Out of caring I asked her how her daughter was doing.....She then went on telling me she stopped all medications last Sunday, because some lady came to pray for her daughter and she must believe 100 percent that she will be cured so she stopped all medications and told her daughter that when she feels destracted or restless in class she must just pray.... I dont want to bore you with the whole discussion, but it also included illness because of the since of our fathers.....not speeking in tongues.....and not declairing all our since..... Bottom line was I told her I feel that medicating is not a sin and that medical help can be part of being blessed and cured.......She even went on telling me that I have been send on her path to test her faith!!!!OMW! Dont really know if this type of discussion is allowed on the forum, if not, please forgive and delete this post.....I just feel so very exausted tonight and guilty because maybe I am rasionalizing all this because my faith isnt strong enough and maybe this is contributing to my kids struggling!!!! But my hubby just say.....this arguement doesnt make sense because then all believers will be healthy and all non believers will be ill....So not true.... I just get so frustrated with judgemental people and the uphill struggle of being a difficult child parent....At the moment my kids are improving so much and I feel the therapists are the most wonderfull instruments thats been send on our path to help us through this difficult journey!
