Good morning, last week, my 6-year old daughter was diagnosed with ADHD Combined Type. We are meeting with our pediatrician tomorrow to discuss medication, as the psychologist who completed the testing felt that she would benefit from it. Here's where I'm struggling: she attends a traditional school and has not really had any behavioral issues. She has complained about getting her work done (sometimes it takes her longer, it's very distracting when people finish earlier than her and talk). She is quite goofy, which is part of her personality, but also something that she does to distract. I think I'm struggling with medicating her proactively - I can see where she may struggle, but I don't know that she will struggle (especially with hyperactivity, impulsivity). The weekends are quite difficult as I'm typically solo parenting with her and a very busy 3 year old. Her behaviors and emotions are across the board, and certainly affecting her sister. So, maybe I just need someone to tell me that it's okay to try. Or that's it okay to wait. Or perhaps, I need to continue to process this information! Anyways - thanks for reading and I'm grateful to have found a resource here.
