3 yrs. ago my son started showing some signs of ADD she was hyper at home but calm in school only thing is the teacher said he was not focussing and that he was in jeopardy of being held back. At the same time my sister came to live with us and we were having a lot of issues with the kids fighting and it always being my son'e fault. My son does always has to be right can never lose and has other annoying traits but he's my son. My sisters daughter knew what to say or do to anger him. I found myself yelling at him a lot and he was getting in trouble a lot more than usual so his little anxiety turned out to become full blown anxiety and so now I was dealing with ADHD and anxiety. His pediatrician tried him on different types of meds till he finally ended up taking Concerta his grades went up but the anxiety seem to get worse my son did not like the meds but I still made him take them because if not his grades go down and he bounces off the wall. He is so scared to get in trouble in school that he wakes me up in the middle of the night asking me to go through his back pack with him to make sure he has everything completed and his journal signed. before school he won't eat his stomache hurts him and always feels like he is going to throw up. In school lately he says his heart races and he has chest pain but it only last for a little while. I have taught him to stop what he is doing and pray and do deep breathing exercises. two weeks ago he started telling me that he felt like crying and he didn't know why I noticed him getting sad once the sun went down but both me and my daughter have always dealt with SAD disorder so I am assuming he probably will to. We had family living with us and a big fight broke out and now they moved out my son now tells me that on different occasions the older kids were getting really mad at him and yelling at him so maybe this is why he was feeling sad. Now since there is a change in the house he has gotten worse and the other night he broke my heart and told me if I had seen the cymbalta commercial about depression and I said yes and he said that is how I feel. My stomache turned and I picked him up and held him tight and told him that not to worry that mommy was going to get him better. How heart breaking for a 10 yr. old not being able to enjoy life. I pray for all of us parents this is a hard thing to go through but with one anothers help I think we can get through this. I have an appt. with a therapist Saturday hopefully we can kind of find out what is really going on with ADHD and Axiety I don't want to put my son on meds but both my daughter and I take Zoloft and it works great.
