 One of my twins was dx with sensory processing disorder and ADHD (just turned 5 on 3/3) and now my older daughter was dx with ADD and possibly sensory disorder as well...I feel like I am just running from therapy to therapy with 2/3 of my kids and poor Madison is along for the ride. Thankfully she is my easy kid, she will sit and play or watch a movie with me.

Madison is also on round 4 of strep since 2/7 and is seeing ENT tuesday for possible tonisles being taken out. And I have been working and ended up in the ER Friday because I took my migraine meds and had a cardiac event so now those are out. grrrrr sorry to vent really have no where else to go :(

Hun have your kids checked that all their primitive reflexes have been triggered. They were considering ADHD for my son until I went to a new therapist. She looked into these and found out that not a single one of the reflexes were triggered. My son may not even have SPD now but we won't know until all of the reflexes have been triggered. Some of the reflexes will come off looking like a whole lot of things including ADD/ADHD and sensory. 

Their quick tests to find out.

Where do you live?

My son is 3 1/2 and he has autism and spd. He also has a very rare auto immune disease that causes his brain to imagine infections and his body attacks it and has a fever of 105+ about a week of every month. He also has asleep apnea and some other auto immune stuff and we have been talking to an ENT here in NH (most of his drs are in Boston) about taking his tonsils and adnoids out but with all his sensory problems, and his throat being a big one, we are worried to go ahead with it yet.

Trust me, I feel you on the appointments!! I have 3 3 ring binders full of his medical records and between going to easter seals and his special ed preschool here in raymond for additional speech and OT, and then all over the world to his 22 specialists and therapist we aren't able to work. We always need our only car to take him someplace almost every single day of the week. DH and I are at each other throats over his care, about dh sucking it up and finding a job he can walk to because anything is better then nothing (or him watching the damn kids and me working) dd is only 20 months but we think she has something going on too.

Easter seals told us last week they think DS might be bi=polar too :/

And no one in our family is willing to help they think everything he has is made up and he is just a bad kid.

Ugh! so yeah, I totally get it!!

 That's alot to deal with. Sorry you feel so overwhelmed. Do NOT ever apologize for venting here...we're all moms, we're all here for each other.

That seems like way to much to deal with. Is there anyone to help you out? Friends, family?

 Thanks ladies..really needed to vent! My husband doesn't help a whole lot, he's to busy working. And my mother's theory is "she's fine just let her be" but until 6 mos ago she wasn't talking and now has come out of her shell. I am sure once school starts things will get better and settle down some.
