Yes Zachdaddy, I think that is the most important thing at the moment. How to help him have a happy and normal life. My son has other issues as well so he is very limited in his life choices. It’s all about finding something he can do, be proud of himself for achieving and what job he will be able to get in later life. At this stage (he is 9) I have no idea. He is becoming very anxious and now really dislikes school. I think the ADHD meds have helped him with his behaviour but made him very insecure. So living between a rock and a hard place, really don’t want to take him off the drugs but I am worried now that they are knocking his confidence through the floor. I think he will be living with us at 30 too.
