Re: Thinking of getting DD evaluated for ADHD.
Andrea I'll be praying for you, your daughter and your family. And for your husband that if you find yourselves in the midst of the struggle the Lord will open his eyes to what is best for your child.
I was against medicating [not for the same reason] so we tried the traditional route first, behavior stuff, foods, etc. And TBH the meds have worked the best and I've seen a huge change in my son. Now he also is ASD so that has issues that meds will not help.
But yes, get her evaluated and that is a huge first step. I myself have a mood disorder and meds are what helped me immensely. Before that I had thoughts of leaving my family, driving away and never coming back, all those sorts of thoughts.
Sometimes the grass is greener on the other side!
