Ok, we've finally done the gamut of psych, etc tests.

From what I have seen, negitivity is not something exclusive to ADHD.

Ralenth, Melissa, & Tredle:
Can you talk more about WHY these kids complain so much & think they are always getting the short end o the stick?
I've talked some to the doc about it & will more.....but, as my dd's complaints are up horribly this weekend, I am wondering again. I just can't do anything right & make mistakes (accord. to her) with things I have abs. no relation to, no way I can be blamed, etc. It just burns me up!
Can't wait to get her to a doc to get her back on meds!

My son, 8, has speech issues, writing issues (dysgraphia) and is continuing to work on his vision issues (he was seeing in double vision due to his eyes not moving together.)

Alex has ADHD and ODD, and can be very negative with the complains, blames, etc. He's taking Focalin, and that works pretty well. When the meds are in his system, the complaining/blaming/etc are way down versus when they are out of his system. He still has triggers for his outbursts, and we try to avoid those. I hope you find a med that works for your DD.
