My son has just turned 5, he has yet to be diagnosed properly with ADHD, but my younger brother had it so I'm sure that is the issue at hand. I am taking him to the pediatrician today for a follow up visit and to talk about diagnosis and treatment. I have so far just been going the natural route, but I'm afraid his symptoms are too severe for these to help very much. He has always been a very active child, which I don't mind at all. But, as he grows older he is becoming more and more defiant. He gets in trouble at school constantly. Sometimes I feel overwhelmed right from the first interaction I have with him in the morning and just want to shut down. It's 8:55 am and I have already cried in my bathroom while he was eating breakfast at the table with his father. He has no focus, and it seems to come in waves. One week he is an angel, asking if he can help me with anything. The next week he is defiant on almost every level, distracted, emotional, and can't sit still at all. I'm trying the best I can and so is my husband, but it feels like I'm walking on eggshells some days. Anyone else feel the same?
