Hello to all. I have been dealing with ADHD for 14 years. I have a 14 year old son with ADHD, with a big emphasis on the "H". I knew he was different when instead of taking slow baby steps he started running when he was 7 months old! He's been on meds since he was 4. My frustration is with his hyperactivity. I've been fed the line that it goes away as they get older. He is still as hyper as he was when he was a small child. He takes a large dose of Ritalin LA to calm him down. Anyway, I love reading these forums, because like everyone else, I'm constantly searching for answers in this wild ADHD ride!

Welcome to the forums,

I am a wild ADHD kid and adult with the big H, it gets better, hold on tight the ride is not easy, but it only makes us stronger.

Enjoy yourself with us

PS: the Parenting section i think would be a great place for you to share your story, and read others in the same situation.
