    Hang in there. My 11 year old dtr dx with adhd this year. Pediatrician recommended a psychologist who confirmed with testing. After 6 months and trial of 5 meds we finally got her on the daytrana patch which works for her. We also do adhd coaching once a week. Highly recommend coaching. My dtr refused to join in but we have learned so much on how to help our dtr. It was so eye opening. She is now talking a little bit but our approach to her has improved and behaviors improved by over 50% even without the meds.
    It’s a process but so worth it
    Best to you

    My son was the same way. His room was a disaster. However he is now 12 and is letting a lot of things go. My daughter who is 11 is just starting to let go of junk little by little. We had a basket and once it was filled, she / he had to pick something to “go” so new stuff could come in. We also took a picture of it. Now they both could care less about the pics.

    Oh. My that is exactly how I would have reacted if I’d even been brave enough to ask to get together.
    I’m new to the adhd world as my daughter just got diagnosed last summer, which led to the realization that my husband and son are also adhd, testing confirmed. I am getting tested next month. After reading your post ( I’m 48) I realized I have RSD.
    It was the real life scenario that you posted that woke me up. I’ve been reading about it and it sometimes sounds familiar but I wasn’t convinced.
    So thank you for sharing your story.
    I just found this forum part on this website and will be doin a lot more reading
    Thanks again, good luck on your journey
