My son just started a new medicine and I am going to the Doctor Monday and as of now stopping the medicine. It is Vyvanse for his ADHD a form of Addirall. The first day he sat for long periods of time and more focused. Then a few hours later the mood swings started and if he didnt get what he wanted he was real irritable. The next day he did good besides the mood swings. Yesterday he had none because I couldnt get him to take it before school in the morning and heard it was best to give in morning so I skipped. The medicine was still in his systom because he was a different person. He was mad because I didnt have candy for him and had a huge meltdown for like 40 minutes and his eyes rolled to the back of his head like twice. I got nervous and called the doctor and from explaining she said it sounds like stress and some kind of stim for him more than likely. Well today I gave him some medicine and sent his juice with it to school. They told me he had a rough day yesterday and scratched one of the aids. He was attacking me yesterday too. Then I get a phone call while he was in school today from the Human resource. She is part of the team to work with my son at school and she said yesterday he was with her all day because he was having a bad day. Today she was with him again and I explained the medicine. Well during his fit at school yesterday his eyes rolled up and got a little stiff, but she said she didnt think it was a seizure. I have never been around a seizure and dont know much about them. I am definitely stopping the medicine its just not right for him. I dont even want to treat his ADHD because the side effects of medicine are awful. Just wanted to know how do you tell the difference. My poor son was jsut coming at me and digging and scratching and pushing his chin in me. I am glad he doesnt bite that often because that hurts. It messed his sleeping pattern up too so I will take my danger ranger over the side effects my goodness.

I'm trying to exercise daily. I was doing fairly well until I sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago but now I'm getting back on the horse. Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. 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...
We are surely all familiar with that lie that Trich tells us, "just one hair" "just pull one", "just one more". It's a lie that's hard to disbelieve in the moment, and it's only after we've indulged in the impulse that we realise we fell for it again. I created a similar thread over on Trich World a couple of years ago (the Trich social networking site) and it's still popular! So I thought I'd...
