It’s almost a year since we started with our official ADHD diagnosis and it has been great to get the answers we desperately needed.
We were at a loss before we broke up for the school holidays. I didnt know what this year had for us. I was apprehensive.
But he got his diagnosis and he started his medication.
I waved him off, wondering what would happen this year, where would we be in a years time?
My biggest question? Would anything change?
Now I have the answers!
He has done a complete 180°!
He came out of school today and passed me his report and I couldnt wait to open it. This is not a feeling I am used to. I am used to dread and anxiety over his behaviour and learning.
Very quickly I begin to cry. Happy tears!
His school report was absolutely amazing! Finally I can sing my kids praises at the top of my voice. I can shout it out loud for everyone else. Someone else, someone from school, thinks my kid is amazing!
It seems like the most trivial thing ever, but when you’ve had three years of school reports and all of them have been negative it’s been great to receive something so positive, something that has been very carefully thought about. To have proof in my hands that actually this kid can do it! I am so proud of him.
I was always proud of him but this is the next level proud!
Anyway, I’m rambling. But I needed to put my news somewhere else.
Never ever doubt your instincts, they are there for a reason, and if you think there is something more underlying with your kids, dont be afraid to fight the fight. Trust your gut and with all your strength keep going. I fought for Korey and now you can see it. He is doing well. Because of the fight we had in us all along!
