I just stumbled on this website today. I feel so alone in all of this. My husband even thinks that our daughter (5 yrs) will outgrow her behavior, but the more we ignore it the more she acts out. About a year ago I noticed that her hyperactivity was becoming more and more pronounced. Then she started wetting her pants again but there was no pattern to any of it. She sometimes drinks fluids to the point where she makes herself physically ill. So I have to watch her when she is given a sports bottle or something like it. Her 4K and preschool teachers started complaining that she was acting out in the classroom more so than the other children. My daughter's daycare has been established for well over 40 years, so if they were pointing out behavior I took it that it was pretty serious. She was having several peeing accidents a week and many outbursts in the classroom. I started taking her to a psychologist in November of 07. Immediately they had diagnosed her with ADHD and ODD (Oppositional Defiance Disorder) and put her on Folcalin CR for the ADHD. Within the first couple of days the daycare said they could see a major difference. While she was still peeing in her pants, they weren't as frequent. She also started showing emotions for punshiment--which was a big change. Around the 2nd month she started showing signs of depression on somedays. Usually it was days where she didn't eat enough at breakfast time. Her doctor assured me that she was fine and to try it for another month. Over the next month in a half her old attitude returned. Her doctor refused to change her medications and I felt like I was wasting away $150/mo for nothing. She also claimed that her potty issues would resolve themselves and that it was normal behavior. Considering she starts school this fall, I had a big problem with that. We were right back where we started from. Due to financial problems, and lack of faith in her doctor, I took away her medications and stopped her treatment. Over the past month she has now become even more abnormal. There have been 3 instances in the past month that she has deficated for no apparent reason. My daughter has never suffered from consitpation. She went into the girls bathroom at school and deficated on the floor which was only 5 ft from a toilet. She also deficated on the floor of her room. Friday she went in the girl's bathroom at the daycare and smeared fecal matter on each of the toilets. I've made an appointment with a new therapist and I'm hoping to have an intelligent doctor. I just need a kind word from someone else who has been there. I'm terrified that my daugher, as intelligent as she is, will be placed in a Special Education class because of her behavior. I feel as if no one else understands what I'm dealing with.
