Hi I'm bipolar, suffer from a very slight case of add as well but the psychiatrist still isn't sure yet because I was officially diagnosed with bipolar so we are seeing how the new meds go. They are already working! I'm so normal again. But anyway my brother suffers from it horribly. I'm just more fidgety and restless I don't think I can't listen to a teacher or sit in church or anything. I'm just a little hyped up. Dh has no family illnesses. Dh is very very calm. So I'm Begining to wonder if our ds has ADHD. You're thinking silly right? Especially at 5! But since he was born he has had non stop energy. And I'm not talking about being a boy and playing all day. I'm talking - take him to the fair, take him swimming, take him to the park in one day and he doesn't nap and still bounces off the walls literally!! He likes to watch a show like Cailou sometimes or play a game. He's extremely outgoing and hyper. He's also very fidgety. I always see moms with like 3 kids
And I'm like wth?! I can hardly manage one. He hasn't napped or fallen asleep mid day in about 3 years. He begins kindergarten in August. Will we know if he has it pretty shortly there after? I know teachers are more aware of this type of thing. I just am totally exhausted all the time trying to get his energy out and we will do a ton in one day and he's still hyped up and has trouble falling asleep. He sleeps like 10-11 hours nightly. Is it too early to seek a dr.'s advice?
