Greetings!!!

I'm a 38 year old wife/mother/caregiver to my mother with AD/HD I was dx'd when I was 32 years old. But I suspected it way earlier. Now I know why I was called a brat as a child. I do not take medication for it by choice. I choose to instead use little tips and techniques to deal with it. And after being dx'd with fibromyalgia, CFS and arthritis in 1998 my hyper part is only my brain now. The body refuses to cooperate..lol

My daughter is 13 (Boogiebutt) and was dx'd in 1995 with AD/HD. She was on Adderall & Imipramine until 2001 then she was switched to Adderall XR & Clonidine, (also during this time she was being treated for allergies by taking Allegra and us giving her shots once a week), until Febuary of this year. In febuary she attempted to committ suicide by taking all the clonidine in her pill sortter for the week. After a week long stay in a psychiatric hospital she has now been dx'd with ADHD, OCD, ODD, Deep Depression, and they suspect bipolar. So the doctors have taken her off the Adderall and now have put her on Celexa & Risperedal along with the Imipramine, Clonidine and Allegra. She/We are in counseling to hopefully get through this and back on track.

I look forward to moderating the ADD Forum Cook Book. If there is one thing I know about that is cooking, if not more than I do about AD/HD..lol

I also look forward to getting to know some of the new faces here, some of you I know from yahoo ADD chat but others I do not. And to those I don't know..lol..you'll soon find out, I'm a bit crazy as well and love to cut up.

Hugggz to everyone!!

Welcome, and I hope that your daughter gets better soon. An ADD cook book sounds great! Is it on this forum?

Thank you Yinrycher,

I love to cook too. My grandmother had 13 kids and she is the one who taught me to cook. I cook a broad spectrum of food and have most of the recipe in my head..now just to get them into measurments for the rest of you..lol

I look forward to all of your recipes as well.

Huggz
