Drug Test for Prescription
Feb 18, 2018 - 2:08 PM - by arsenalfan22
Last week my doc randomly drug tested me. I was never made aware this was part of my treatment, but as I was taking the test he had me sign a contract. It was a saliva test, not urine. Also, I was kind of frazzled, so I never asked what exactly they were testing for.

I am freaking out because the week before I was at a party where I consumed alcohol and cocaine. I drink occasionally but I rarely do drugs. If he would have tested me at any other point in our relationship I would... [Read More]

I could live with the inability to pay attention, the little mistakes I make or even the emotional dysregulation. What I absolutely hate is the lack of control over myself. How can anyone life like this?

I've got no power over my actions. The only reason why I haven't murdered, caused grievous bodily harm, raped or robbed is because I have no desire to do so. If I did, I wouldn't be able to stop myself.

It's a thought that scares the hell out of me. Doesn't it... [Read More]

Parenting a boy with ADHD
Feb 12, 2018 - 3:40 PM - by Gwyn413
I have an 11 year old son named Jack. He was diagnosed with ADHD when he was 8 after years of struggling at school. I put him on an I.E.P. and they sent him into special education in Colorado, where he thrived.

We moved to Texas (husband is military) and we put him into the special education program at Cody Elementary, where he was abused by his teacher (she gave him 2 inch long cuts on his arm, and bruises on both wrists). I had to remove him from the I.E.P. program in... [Read More]
