I just found your site and it looks like a Godsend. I have a 14 year old daughter who I have been struggling with since she was a baby. She has been diagnosed ADHD with severe ODD. It's so bad her new doctor this morning suggested it may have escalated to Conduct Disorder. I am at my wit's end, she refuses to take her medications (Adderall at the moment--she's been on just about everything) because of the appetite suppressant side-effect. I feel like I'm living in an abusive relationship and there's no way I can get out of it. She's not physically violent towards people, but she can do a lot of damage to property and I just can't engage in screaming matches anymore. She's just been suspended from school for 2 days (very effective, she gets 2 free days off to do (or not do) whatever she wants, comepletly unsupervised) for causing general mayhem and finally announcing that she wanted to "blow up the school". She claims to want to go live with her dad, which is fine, except he'll send her back within a week once she throws her first full-fledged tantrum and unleashes her disgusting language on his new wife. I am so tired of venting to friends who while well meaning and sympathetic MUST be getting bored hearing about all this. I'm glad to have found a place where I can tell someone what's going on and they KNOW. Thanks for being here, thanks for "listening"!
