View Full Version : Iīm so happy and daughter is walking on air

As some of you know my 17 year old has had such a rough ride this past 4 years and this year being particularly hard with therapy, depression, anger and suicidal thoughts. Then came the ADHD diagnosis and she started concerta in September last.

By this time she had failed her first term of her final year. Due to her adhd she had already repeated 2 whole years and this was her last chance before being kicked out.
With the help of a wonderful teacher at the school (not even her own teacher) she got her into a modified program. A program that I had repeatedly requested but was denied on the grounds that my daughter was capable but didnīt want to work.

Anyway this last week, things were going great and then suddenly her history teacher tells her he made a mistake and she has to take an exam covering the term that she missed, after having told her she didnīt.

So she had 2 days to cover a whole term. History is one of her worst subjects. The exam took three hours followed by a chemistry exam.

Today is the last day of school she got the news that she passed every single subject with high marks. Itīs the first time in over 4 years that she has passed more than 2 subjects.

For the first time r she can enjoy the summer without summer school every single week and then retakes of failed exams in September.

She is walking on air and canīt quite believe it, she keeps making strange yaay noises as she keeps remembering that she is free.

She was also offered a job for the summer and is going to take driving lessons. Next week we will apply to different schools for the next 2 years of study.

She has come so far but without Concerta it would have been impossible. I am so happy for her, things looked so bleak six months ago, I really feared for her mental health.

I wish a happy stress free summer for kids, ADHD robs them of so much time. year that should be childish, carefree and happy are so full of worry and anxiety and thoughts of school school school and exams.

Hugs to all :grouphug:
