Verge of a meltdown...
Im not sure where to start. I have 3 children. My son who is five was diogionsed with adhd in september. It has been a battle to get him on meds because of his age. In school where he is
In pre k he was suspended on a regular basic. The principal told my husband and i he didnt care what was wrong with our son or what disibility he had. we have tried a few meds and his behavior had become
More erradic he sees a therapist and goes
To occupitional therapy for his arm he broke in
2010 at daycare. This past thursday his therapist had him admitted to a pedatric pychatric hospital because she was worried he was going to harm himself and others. I took off the past couple of
Days so we could be close to him ( they sent him 3 hrs away). Its breaking my heart because we have to leave and go home tomorrow so i can return to work monday and to get our girls who are with family right now. There is just so much on our plate its overwhelming. My daughter who is 8 was diagoinsed with post traumatic stress syndrone. And both the girls have kidney reflux disease as well as me. My husband is having surgery
Next month on his gallbladder. So more dr visits. Then all this with my son and them trying to figure out what is goin on. He is now on syraquil and adderal. If anyone
Has any advice im all ears. Im not sure what to do anymore but to trust in the good Lord above
I feel like I have heard this story before. I know someone who told me about her son and how he had to be taken and kept under watch. She'd drive hours to and from the hospital and to work and home. It was so heartbreaking. She also had other medical issues going on with other kids and herself. So my heart aches for you. :(
I cannot completely relate to your story but I do want to share something with you that i was recently introduced to... Essential oils. Maybe you have heard of them maybe not but let me tell you my back ground.
My husband and I didnt see eye to eye when it can to medical things at first. He could pop a pain pill anytime and i hated them. So when My son was about 2 years old my husband and I thought he had LOTS of ADHD tendencies. Now I know thats young and everyone told me he is just a boy he is too young. And that is true. My husband suggested i take him to the dr to see if we can get meds and I said absolutely not. For one they wont give me any but two they just aren't safe. So I took him to a Natural dr instead. she helped a bit but wasn't thorough enough for me. Since then he has been in preschool and been more social, it has helped but he still cant focus or pay attention well at all. Did you know the preschool children are the fastest growing market for antidepressants? I read that in an article and I cried. SO SAD!!!
So recently my friend introduced me to Essential oils. doTERRA Essential oils. We now use them every day to manage stress, anxiety, those AD/HD issues, sleep, headaches, and lots more. They are natural and safe and can be used on people of all ages. They are aromatic compounds found in plants. Stronger that using dried herbs to help heal. If only i had know then what I knew now. ;) However i am beyond grateful for these oils and that they were shared with me. They have calmed my child tremendously. It takes a lot of consistency and willingness but It has been so worth it for us. I there are lots of moms who have been able to take control of AD/HD and otehr health concerns with these oils.
I hope you can find strength to endure. Please keep me updated. I will gladly lend a listening ear.
You are strong and you will endure.
Welcome to SG and thank you for the excellent information. I will have to do more research. Of course, I've heard of essential oils, but never looked at them intently.
Have you thought about doing a separate thread about them? Specifically what helps with depression and anxiety. There are a lot of people on this site who would find the information valuable.
Smile, God Loves You and So Do I!
