My name is Emily and I have a 7 year old son diagnosed just this past fall with ADHD. He is currently taking concerta in the morning and 2 doses of ritalin throughout the day. My son is mostly on the hyperactive spectrum of this diagnosis. He is impulsive and defiant. He is aggressive and violent toward me. However, he can also be kind and loving. We are still working with a psychiatrist and counselor to get his regimen perfected. In the meantime, I lay awake at night wondering what else I can do for him. Why I am his target, and how to get my sweet boy back.. I am here in this web community seeking answers and friends that are in the same boat as me. I have no family or friends that have dealt with this before, and therefore do not understand what I am going through. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated greatly.
Eager to meet you!
