Hi everyone, this is my first post here. I am a special education coordinator/teacher and my daughter has just deen diagnosed with ADHD. I feel like a deer in headlights. I always knew she had attention diffiucltie, but assumed she would mature (she is almost 6). She is a very hyper child, but I just chalked it up to her personality. When she was little, I just called her a 'handful" and everyone thought her energy was so cute. Now she is in kindergarten and its not so cute anymore and getting in the way of her academics. I feel so stupid. How can I be a prefessional in this field and missed it in my own daughter for so long? Now I am faced with medication choices and putting a "label" on my child. I have always felt like I was empathetic to parents of children with disabilites but its soooo different when its your own. I feel like I have let her down:(

I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
