My DD (7) has been evaluated for ADHD and More and we find out the results of the test and the recommendations for meds and therapy and such tomorrow. I am scared to death for some reason- anxious and just plain worried for her future.
No real question I guess just needed to get that out.

I also want to tell you that you are fortunate in getting a diagnosis. My teen daughter has adhd, She has struggled in school her whole life. Yet, They use to think that ADHD was not present in girls. They just gave me parenting techniques and told me to ground her, take away privileges. The school did not care that she could not focus long enough to read a page in a book. No diagnosis, no IEP. Leaving her to sink or swim in school. The doctors kept saying it was because girls are more social etc. I wish I could go back and demand help for her. Her road to success will take longer. Actually you are giving your daughter the tools to succeed. My daughter has the social abilities my son longs for, my son has the academic ability my daughter longs for.Every child has some kind of obstacle. They just need to know that they should never allow them to hold them back from their dreams.
