My almost-4-year-old was officially diagnosed with ADHD combined type back in May. However, I have known that he had ADHD for at least a year. WE took him to every specialist under the sun but because of his age and other diagnoses including Apraxia and Sleep Apnea no one would help us. He is a sweet boy and hates to be out-of-control. In June of this year, he was trying to take a nap and asked for more milk. I left him for literally 2 mins. to get the milk and during that short time span, he fell from the second story window of our home. By the grace of God, he is okay and suffered relatively minor injuries. Suddenly, dr.'s started to take us seriously. He has no safety sense and I worry every minute that something will happen to him. I also have two other children who are affected by the impact of his out-of-control behavior. Thankfully he is now on meds but the few hours that it wears off at night and the time in the morning before he takes his meds are trying to say the least. Will this get any better? I feel so alone.
