After consulting with the pedi, we have come to a mutual decision to experiment with taking Lil’ Miss off her ADHD medication.
Beginning medication was NOT a decision we made lightheartedly. We have been seeing docs for at least 2+ years trying lots of other opyions, before we made the insanely difficult decision to go down the medication route.
We have tried 3 diff meds. We thought we found a winner. Her focus was so much better. She was completing her work. Teachers were only stopping class to refocus her a couple times a day compared to handfuls of times.
But….she has developed 4 side effects from the medication. Or at least we are hoping they will disappear once she is off medication completely.
So today is Day 1.
1 chitlin is getting distracted by sparkly things.
1 chitlin is high kicking the therapy ropes.
1 mama that is going to go gray really fast.
1 daddy that has spent a weird amount of time doing yardwork today…….
