  • Hello,
    My 10 year old daughter was recently diagnosed with ADD. I am having trouble understanding all the affects this has on her. She also has Absence Mall Seizures (form of epilepsy). The doctor says ADD goes hand in hand with it. I'm not sure how to help or deal with it. Her seizures has been almost nonexsistent since she has been on Lamictol for almost 3 years. The ADD is really affecting her schoolwork and I am really concerned about this. Any suggestions would be of grea use. Thank You.

  • I don't know if this will help but I have ADHD...I've had it my whole life for the most part and so does my brother...I'm 20 and a new mom. The challenges of raising a baby and having ADHD can be difficult but we manage...not to mention my little is already a little fireball.....
