First of all I'm so sorry to hear about what's going on with your daughter and the stress it's creating in your home. I'm very well acquainted with both of these disorders as I am a Firefighter/Medic and prior to that I worked as a Sheriff. Additionally I volunteer at a local youth center for children that have these types of issues. I'd like to ask you some questions first; I hope that's o.k and please don't be offended/take it personal, it's not. 1. Who diagnosed her with ADHD & at what age? What meds is she currently on & what other's have you tried? Are they being prescribed by a Physciatrist or your family/pediatric physcian? Has she always had the hypocondriact "fear" or is this behavior something more recent? Same ? For the bed wetting. Is her Aspbergers mild, moderate, etc and when was she diagnosed? Lastly, was it the same physician who diagnosed both syndromes? If you can give me as much detail as you're comfortable with I'm certain I can help.
Thank you for the help in not offendes or bothered by any wuestions or comments thank you! My daughter was diagnose right b4 turning 8 years old by a very known psycolgist he now appears on anews broadcast sometimes for mental help his name is dr stern didagnose with both at the same time. Now I take her to a community health center t talk to a psychologist she doesn't really like her she wants to go back to stern which is impossible right now. She was on aderal for awhile but lost like 8lbs in 2months it seemed to help for a wk or 2 then needed up over and over so I took her off no meds since for about a year and a half now I'm not sure if its the adhd or the asbergers. She has always been clingy but not as much as now. But I think she needs togo to some kind of place for kids like her just worried about it.
I believe he said to me its a mild form but is it possible for it to get worse? she knows she has it and has even been asking me if its from the adhd and if I mention schools with smaller class room she think I think she's mental retarded she freaks out if I mention a tutar for school. Any help you give is appreciated. Thank you
Hi Jaime. My heart goes out to you girl. I don't even know what aspergers diseasd is, but it soud to me more like she is just seeking your attention. Probbly because of your other daughter getting so much more with her problems. IOt's typical, & they will do anything to get it like the stealing & lying. Sit her down or better yet, try to spend a day alone with just her. Can you get someone to watch your other child for a day? Maybe Grandma or somthing. Talk to her & explain why you have to give her sister (I thinkit a sister) so much attention because of her health. Tell her you love her just as much, but sometimes her sister needs a little extra attention than her be cause she is so good most of the time. Get her or ask her if she could help you with the sister, & maybe all three of you could go for lunch or something. After she understands a little maybe take herout to a store & buy her some little something to make her feel special too.
It sounds like this might be the problem, I've seen it so many times. Even with my own kids who are grown adults with their own familys. My two youngest at least the youngest thinks I favor his brother over him etc... He cussed me out so bad this summer, & that is not allowed & I will not toerate it at all He is 42 years old, & we haven't spoken since first of July. He told me to F off. I feel he owes me an aplogy & I won't budge on it. Not against cussing because I do at times too, but will not tolerate a son or daughter talking to a mother that way.If your daughter is doing ok in school, fudge a bit & take her out for the day so you can be alone completely. Hey , it's worth a try. I know what you are going thru. I had 3 in 3 years & it's hard. My middle one was my biggest problem when they were young I always called it the middle child syndrome, and it is a syndrome my doctor confirmed it He was always getting hurt. Only one of the three. I was even investigated by or was going to be, until my doc stepped in & said that kid has middle child syndrome! Had him in ER constantly with borken bones, stitches, & so on. You'll look back years later & have a good laugh at all of this I am positive. Sorry so long. Guess I should have PM'd this Sorry...
I can't give you much help, though it sounds like you just got some.
I can say my closest friend's son has Aspergers. He is 18, and still has some of the issues you speak of with your daughter.
He, is refusing anything from the medical profession-EXCEPT, he's been trying to get on the 'medical marijuana' program. He is positive weed has helped him.
I don't know where you live. What research have you done as far as support groups for people with Aspergers or those who are affected by it? I know we have some here in Toronto. Of course, that's no help to you. I do believe help is out there. It just a matter of asking the right questions. Something which isn't always easy to do.
I wish you luck
I offer my support
know you are loved
