I went and had a teacher conferance with my 8 year olds teacher a few weeks ago and she wanted to know if I had any concerns, Yes i had plenty my son was not reading on grade level he could not spell or write well and he could not pay attention or finish his school work,as well as he scored very low on maps testing,and was frustrated most of the time, I've had these concerns since he started k-5 and just could not get any help from the other teachers he had they said he was just a little behind and he would catch up soon so they put him in a reading help class and just pushed my concerns asside, untial this year, his teacher was so relieved that I had the same concerns as she did she had taught many students through the years that had ADHD and she felt my son had many of the signs as well as she wanted the school to test him for a learning disability, I was scared and relieved at the same time, My son would finally get the help he needed to do better in school but what was I up against, The first step was to make the drs. appt. which is still two weeks away, So in the mean time I'm reading books reasearching on the computer, joining this support group and trying to get all the infomation I can on ADHD so I can be at least a little prepared when we see the doctor and I have to meet with the school. I could use any advice/information on ADHD ( my son is not hyper, so he would have the inactive ADHD) I'm very scared of putting him on meds. but I have read good and bad about meds. Also what should I expect from the school as far as support and help? Thank you all for taking the time to read my entry I hope to make many new friends and share the support, God Bless you all

So my daughter, who will be 30 in a few months, says she thinks she has varicose veins, as she can't figure out what else it could be. Only in one leg, and is so bad it is hard to sleep at night. She is in excellent shape, really exercises a lot, and eats well... not at all overweight. Anyone else have any issues with this? I did find that it can go with PKD. She was reading that there are...
