Suzanne- ME, ME! My DD and I both have ADHD. Allie's primarily inattentive, though. She was diagnosed near Christmas, and started meds. They work wonders for her! She went from struggling academically to winning the school-wide "most improved student" award. It helped with her attitude immeasurably, too. I really think Camille will end up with a dx also- she's very similar to my nephew who is very very (hyperactive) ADD, too. But hey- I wouldn't want her to be the only grandkid on my side (out of six) who doesn't have it!! [:P] It can be a challenge, but now that she's getting treated it's much easier and life here at home is far, far more calm. Hang in there, it gets easier!
