I haven't been on ivillage in a VERY long time. I think it was when I was pregnant with my first. And here I am again because of her - ADHD. We're certain that will be the diagnosis. I suspected it when she was only 2 yrs old. She is now 7. I am not scared of the diagnosis, just this journey has been so emotional. Reading the teacher's assessment of my daughter is so painful. And I just don't know where to go from here. We have a great therapist to work with. And I'm sure she'll put us in touch with a support group when we get to that point on this road. But I am just looking to connect with others in this situation.
Do we medicate? Do we do behavioral therapy? Should we expect *everyone* to understand the behavioral therapy stuff? Will it work? Is medication going to change my child? I am filled with so many unknowns and don't know who to ask.
