I am so upset right now and feel like things aren't ever going to get better. My son, who is 12, has fairly severe ADHD and has had ongoing problems with kids bullying him. I've homeschooled him for several years to escape it but the bullying has continued on the sports teams he plays on. He loves to play sports but there is usually one kid on the team who makes fun of the way he talks, etc. He is very emotional and telling him to ignore it doesn't work. Today a kid on his team was mimicking him, calling him foul names, and repeatedly pushing him. What doesn't help is my son has nobody to stick up for him. It is difficult for him to make friends and his one friend on the team doesn't want to get involved. My son cried for an hour after practice today but doesn't want to quit because he loves playing football and likes being around boys his age despite the bullying. I talked to the coach but have little confidence it will help things. It hasn't in the past. I worry about how this is affecting his self esteem. He is a quirky kid but really sweet and funny once a person gets to know him. Unfortunately, not too many kids his age can see past his goofiness. My heart breaks for him, I know he feels alone at times.

Hi everyone. I was on the Fentynl Patch for many years but have been taken off of it via my pain management doctor. She is now giving me Norco but will be taking me off of those as well.

Now I have a fiance and her adoptive grandparents want to meet him because they want to see if he's "safe around [my] daughter". If he's in my life and my daughter is too then their paths may cross from time to time.My...
