Re: Dealing with grief and ADHD

Like the other people posting, my 7 yr old son was just diagnosed with ADHD combined types. I have always known he had something like this, but just having that feeling of knowing something is different versus getting the diagnosis has just struck me in a way I can't describe. I am happy that he can get the help he needs and we are starting therapy and seeing his pediatrician to see about medicines so that is positive. I hope he can enjoy school after that and his self-esteem from not performing like this classmates will improve. But I have all these other feelings and I am also afraid to tell others about it because of the stigma attached with ADHD. I have told his 1st grade teacher about the diagnosis only because with in the first week of school she emailed me asking me how can I get him to pay attention. She is a wonderful teacher and has been working with him very well when I told her what is going on. Thank you for all the posting and this forum.
