About 4 yrs ago my son was in brick and mortar school. Well, his teachers started to treat him poorly and also bullying involved. This was before he was diagnosed with Inattentive adhd. The school refused to work with us. After conferences and multiple meetings we decided to keep him home and attend virtual school. Soon after he was diagnosed with adhd. We decided not to medicate him and we feel strongly about this. Meds aren't an option and there are health reasons why we chose not to as well. He has been attending a virtual school from home. His grades are A's and B's and I'm his learning coach. I assist him when needed. I am here to redirect him when he is distracted. This has worked out for us for the past few years.
Lately when we see family members they ask him or us the dreaded question, so when are you going back to school? Are you putting him back into school? Well, he is in school the only difference is that he is at home. This makes me so frustrated and annoyed because these family members do not know the struggles we face. I don't know whether to clarify this with them and let them know once and for all our reason for keeping him home . Is this something I shouldn't even have to explain to them? Also, I question if there is anything else that I should do regarding adhd .The issues we have are that he is forgetful. He tends to daydream often and I have to redirect him during school. I worry about him having a future. What is it going to be like for him if he is so forgetful. I want him to be independent. Will he lead a normal life?
Another night and I still can't sleep. I've been diagnosed with Graves for about a year now. Tonight I finally decided to join this group. Maybe see if it will help me feel better. Or at the very least more sane. I'm tired of my friends and family saying, "It's been a year, aren't you better?" No, I'm not. In fact, I don't feel like myself at all, but a completely different person. I'm tired most...
