Life with Fast Boy

The Challenges of Raising Our ADHD Son

Thank You for Acting Up

Posted by One Tired Mama on July 27, 2007

Dear FastBoy,

Thank you for acting up in front of the LMHP today.  You have done a perfect job of demonstrating the type of behavior that I have to deal with on a daily basis.  Usually people look at me like I’m nuts when I tell them how tired you make me.  But, not today.  Today, they got to see, hear and feel what I live with.  Your screaming, arguing, running, and confrontational, almost-aggressive behavior was a perfect example of our lives together.  The fact that you still had on your pajama top and underwear at 2 o’clock in the afternoon was icing on the cake.

Lucky for her, she only had to stay for two hours.

    I feel your pain. My daughter was in the doctor’s office for my son’s visit and she was nuts… The doctor (not our usual physician) looked at me at one point and said “obviously we have other issues going on here, huh?!” Yeah, I guess so.

    I am taking my daughter to a new ADD specialist/psychiatrist on Monday. Keeping my fingers crossed we find a med that works
