Hey everyone! My name is Brenda. My 7 year old daughter was just recently diagnosed with ADHD. It wasn't a huge surprise to me but now having an official diagnosis I wanted to research and find out as much as I can so I can take care of her and help her succeed. Has anyone experienced symptoms of separation anxiety? My daughter has had this but just recently got worse to the point she cries every morning going to school and every night on a school night because she worried about school. I spoke with her teacher. She seems to be doing great at school. Has friends, doesn't get in trouble at all. However at home its a different story. She displays a lot of anger and anxiety. She's very weepy all the time. She cries about irrational fears for example, someone breaking in to the house, getting in a car accident, and getting cancer. She's very angry , defiant, and in the same hour can be loving and well behaved. I noticed she has been lying a lot and blames everyone else for her misbehavior. She has very low self esteemand it just breaks my heart. I was wondering what are the symptoms that go along with ADHD that could be causing all this stress on her. Maybe its completely unrelated but I was hoping to get some feedback from other parents experiencing similar things with their children.
