Hi,

I am a mom of a 10-year-old girl who has just been diagnosed as ADHD inattentive type. When I was pregnant with her, I did use progesterone as there were symptoms of miscarriage. I don’t know if that contributes to her ADHD or not. When I was young, I could not concentrate in class. I like to study by myself and I think I am “smart”. Later most of my life, I study by myself and I have strong will to do things and can control and concentrate if I want to. I am very forgetful. Often when i open the fridge and forget about what to do. But generally I am organized and don’t have other difficulties. I have been blaming myself for my daughters’ problem.
