    Hi everyone. I'm Tara a stay at home mom to three children. My difficult child is Chris (8) and was just diagnosed with ADD today. I have so many questions and concerns but at least I know that there is help for him.

    My other two are Katie who will be 5 next month and James who is 18 months.

    Just wanted to pop in and say hi.

    Hi! I just stumbled upon the site a few days ago as well. My son is 7 and was diagnosed with Bi-polar last December...and it was just changed to ADHD/ODD. I have a good friend with a girl who has ADD and she's doing well on medications. I hope you find good info here and I'm sure things will start looking up soon. The initial diagnosis is always the toughest to deal with (I think). Well, hang in there!
