  • Keeping a journal might help you to notice some patterns in his behavior that you wouldn't notice otherwise. It can be a very helpful tool.

  • What did they ask u to journal about? Food intake? moods?

  • IDK...a journal can have many purposes...they must have told you what they wanted you to journal. If not, you better call and clarify. I had to keep a food journal on my son for months when he was sick. They wanted it very specific. Amount of food (yes, we had to weigh and measure all food before and after he ate) and the exact time he sat down to eat and when he was finished. Maybe they want you to journal his behaviors throughout the day and the times and your daily activities.

  • ADHD is diagnosed by observation primarily, so your home observations of your son's behaviors will be very helpful to the evaluator. If your child is of school age, observations from the teachers would be helpful, too.

  • The journal will give insite into why promotes the ADHD, but that is caused by the vaccines


    I'm going to be breaking a HUGE story on Ameros Radio next Tuesday. Eileen Dannemann from the National Coalition of Organized Women will be joining me to expose the over %2000 jump in miscarriages, stillbirths, and fetal demise when comparing 2008 to 2009 (Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System). She has the V...AERS reports and the science, pointing towards a strong case for gross neglect by the CDC.

    Here is the information we will be discussing:

  • To properly diagnose, to find out what sets him off etc. The journal is very important. I would also journal his meals, to see if some foods are contributing to the behavior. Sounds like you have a good doc.

  • To properly diagnosis your child. He may not have ADHD but another mental health condition.
