Hello to all. I am new to this forum and so very happy thet I have found it. My 7 year old son was officially diagnosed with ADHD about 2 months ago. I couldn't believe my eyes when I read about other children who have attempted or expressed a desire to kill themselves. The other night my son didn't want to take his meds and he had got perfect on his spelling test and had no homework so I said fine. As I was putting two other children to bed I heard him storm upstairs to his room (this is nothing new) apparently he had been climbing up a bookself and his father got annoyed and told him to stop. After putting the others to bed which was about 5 minutes after he had come up I went to see what he was up to. I freaked when I walked into his room to find him on his bed with a plastic bag over his head. I screamed and pulled it of and asked him why he was doing that. Through his tears he said that he wanted to kill himself because he was always getting into trouble and that his dad doesn't like him and would be happier if he wasn't here. Thank god he didn't realize that that the bg needed to be tighter but he was sweaty and red and I fear what might have happened had I not gone in when I did.I had a long talk with him and called the Ped. right away. They are setting up an app. with a therapist.
Thanks for listening.
