Born in Chicago. :cool:

I have ADHD, Epilepsy, (and probably also Bipolar II)

My 9yo daughter, Amy, has ADD (b. 3/21/94)

My 8yo daughter, Elizabeth, has Autism (b. 10/1/95)

My oldest daughter, Jennifer, also had ADHD. She was also suspected of having Asperger Syndrome and/or Childhood-onset Bipolar Disorder. She died last year in an accident. (7/1/92 - 9/10/02)

I am a 37 year old single mom with a sevenyear old who was diagnosed with ADD last year. He is an amazing child! We live in West Des Moines, Iowa.

I migrated up here (to Iowa) a few years ago with my parents, before I got married and had a kid (ok, reverse those last two events.)

No offense, but...I liked Arkansas better. I think I miss being consistently surrounded by trees, rather than vast amounts of flat fields. And there's so much wind, and at the moment, my car is buried in at least a foot of snow.

Oh, well. The good thing about living in a cold climate is that if I put on a few pounds, I can wear baggy sweaters with good reason, as opposed to Arkansas, where their definition (previously my definition) of "freezing cold" was somewhere around 50 degrees...

Hayden--I live in Des Moines. I haven't officially been tested yet (by a doctor, that is), but sometimes I feel I've been tested my whole life. :rolleyes:

My name is Errin and I live in Castalia, Iowa. I was diagnose with Adult ADD about a year and a half ago. I have 2 little boys, both of whom most likely have ADD as well, but aren't taking any medication at this point. Nice to meet some fellow Iowans! :)
