I need to know how those of you who have faced this same situation have dealt with this. My GD who is 5, and who I love dearly, has been hell on wheels since school started. She's been a behavior problem at school, at home and at dance lessons. She gets daily bad reports and gets removed from dance classes. At home things have been very difficult. She hasn't been a problem before...she was in a home daycare until 3 with a person who required that the children she kept be well behaved. She was very particular. Last year she was in preschool two days a week and other than being very active, they had no complaints. Now tomorrow, after only 3 weeks of school, I'm being called in for a meeting with her teacher. If you know my history, this child was molested last year and her mother's visits limited to supervised only...so she rarely sees her now. She sees a therapist and I've had a panic call with her today. She's talking about testing GD for ADHD. My problem? And please don't criticize me...but I'm panicking at having to raise another child like my DD who was ADHD and has been a drug addict for the last 25 years. At 63 I don't know how I can do it, where I can possibly find the strength. I don't know that my experience in that area is any benefit as I feel still that I failed my daughter despite my best efforts. GD was a drug baby but I still had hoped we would avoid this problem. Sending her back to her mother is in no way an option...but where so I find the strength? I know many of you deal with grandchildren with various problems, but my memories of my DD's childhood are not good ones.

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...
