We went for the ADHD eval on Tuesday.
Welcome! That's terrific what your daughter said. I got a chuckle out of that! My seven year old son recently described ADHD as feeling like he can't control his body.
I can relate to the doctor's appt. That's just what our son would do, too. Visit the behavioral therapist and psychiatrist's office was a relief because it was the first time I didn't have to try to correct every behavior or apologize. They knew exactly what we were dealing with!
Best of luck to you! I hope Vyvanse proves to be a winner for her and that the side effects/rebound gets better over time.
Glad you got some answers, but I am surprised they started Vyvanse at 30, and eval'd in one visit?
A child may HAVE ADHD, but it is not what they ARE. Never tell a child they ARE ADHD.
I was a little surprised, too, but it seems to becoming more and more commonplace to do an evaluation and talk to the parents for an initial diagnosis.
