Huh… that’s definitely food for thought. It’s hard with multiple diagnosis because they overlap and sometimes I can’t tell which behaviour is caused by which diagnosis. I can say that her emotions are definitely playing a part in worsening her ADHD symptoms so I’m hoping that meds will help deal with the ADHD response so that I can deal with the PTSD. Because when she’s on an ADHD “high”, nothing positive comes out of it. We can’t get to helping her manage her emotions because she’s so wound up.
We have a new bedtime routine we’re trying this week and it’s going okay, but it would be going much better if she wasn’t arguing and mouthing me off 24/7!
Thanks again for your input, I appreciate it!
