Hey everyone i am a 33 year old single mom for six years now with 3 children ages 7, 9, and 13. I've known my oldest 13 yr old girl has been ADHD since she was 2 and put off having her tested for years then refused to put her on retilin, and i've dealt with it up till now with no treatment for her. This past nov 2006 she hurt me severely and i was on complete bed rest with an injured back for a cpl of weeks but laid up for 2 mths because of it. i now have her and myself in counselling to try and help her. I also recently found out last nov my 9 yr old son was dyslexic i had a feeling he was but the school wouldnt test him till he was in grade 4, he was a very sweet boy and i had no rouble with him in school or at home until this year, hes been bullied because he couldnt read and write an was behind all of his other classmates and until he was diagnosed with dyslexia he couldnt understand what was wrong with himself and im sure it been overwhelming for him and his behavior change is because of that, but now they have him referred to a pedeatrician saying he has a disorder called Oppisitional defiant disorder, i wont go into the details of his behavior as im sure you know the syptoms. and my youngest son age 7 has recently been diagnosed with dyslexia plus A.d.d. i need some help and theres so many sites i am so confused as to how to deal with it all, i am completely alone with my children i dont have any family around their all in another province, please give me some advice before i go off my head with frustration i need help for my children and no one here seems to be helping me. thank you.
