have been dealing with this since my daughter has been 1. Doctors just told me she was very strong willed, has lots of energy, and only requires minimal sleep.She is now 9. I have seen all kinds of behavioral doctors, and nothing, I mean nothing has changed since she was little.Im feeling brushed off once again.They tell me she does have signs, but unfortunately she has signs of it at home and not at school yet.That was told to me 3 years ago.Back to the doc we go, I was told to read a book and go along with that, and we did, somewhat ok, but still hasn't changed her hyperness, her disobedient ways, her sleeplessness.I was at the office with doc last night cried my eyes out to him, told him its not working,Im exhausted, She is completely out of control, and he said we need to start over from the beginning.I got a parent teacher conf. and was told she is exhausting because she never stops.My doc says he spoke with her teacher and pediatrition, and got good reviews, right now he she has some signs of adhd at home but its not in school yet....Now we have had good reviews in school until this year and the school work is getting harder.Her teacher tells me that next year in 4th grade she will struggle. I NEED OPINIONS!!! I have taken surveys on adhd, and they come back saying "sounds like your child has adhd" see a doctor. I have and now I don't know what to do. They feel they cannot diagnose her yet, but I feel why not, its only going to get worse,cant they see that? I know im no doc, but why does she have all the symptoms?It is starting to spill out into school, but not alot, so they say they cant say she has adhd...yet???Everything I have read says girls get the back burner when it comes to adhd. Am I getting the back burner or do you think that its not it? If there is someone else out there going thru this, I need help!!!
