I FORGOT to submit my previous post..
When I decided to stop the medications.. OMG!!! you wouldnt believe what i went through HELL with school social service (formerly).. they threatened and filed lawsuit that "I neglected my child's needs"... I didnt know till that summer of 2003 (last year).. I was really upset.. I am "MOTHER" of my own child, my rights.. but Yes it's true that they can do anything like that because I signed papers.. that they put him on medications through by therapy and counseling.. But thankfully that Generations helped me go through with the accusations.. and waived.. so I didnt go court.. or didnt lose my son.. whew!
So, my suggestions that BEFORE you stop the medications.. or something like that.. Stand up and speak your own words.. and provide some paperworks or informations that you will work with your child (like change foods, community service) to *SHOW* that you are working with your child without their medical needs..
If you are not planning to stop the medications.. if your son isnt doing well again.. my advices.. (**I am not forcing you or twist your arm**)
----try to find a date to have someone watch your kids.. have your husband and you go out eat.. someplace relaxation.. and have good discussions.. (bring paper).. write down Pos and negs...
------discuss and think about moving him to different school..
------discuss to have different therapy or dr for other opinons..
----find out if your health insurance cover for chirpactor (sp?-sry) (*also i forgot to mention this that my son have gone to chirpactor once a week now) it helps to adjust the body, mind, and bones-muscles.. (also, they do sometimes provided vitman pills and give you healthy foods-oraginic & etc)
----- community center like i said..
----- try put him in more sports..
I know costly costly.. but you wouldnt believe that the most programs support adhd, ebd, add children..
I am trying to think some more.. I am exhaust at this moment.. hehe..
One thing, Dont feel bad or feel down because you have child who is difficult.. Honestly, I was depressing that my son is difficult and other my childrent arent like him.. I feel that I am bad mom in somewhat.. but its not true.. once you get involve with support groups (for parents even for children too).. or community centers or stuff like that.. it will take weeks.. and you realized that child changed little bit or big time.. you will realized that you missed the old self .. *because* you went thru so much .. then now alot less.. feel that something is wrong.. but its not.. you broke and make success for the child's best interest and better life..
that also make you stronger person.. ****Huggs****
