Hi there, I'm creeping through here because my daughter has been diagnosed with inattentive type ADD and I guess I have to say I don't understand. I myself am completely scatterbrained so I guess she could have inherited it from me, but how do you know for sure when someone has it?
One thing I know for sure is she is completely disorganized and when I ask her a question more often than not I have to repeat myself before I get an answer.....
I have alot of well meaning people in my life who say that ADD can be a symptom of watching too much television or playing too many video games.
What is your opinion on medication and seeing a psychologist? Should I be forcing her to go to one if she really doesn't want too? This discussion may be pointless because I think I wasted the doctor's time when I maybe hadn't accepted the diagnoses. He said wait two months and if I feel at that point she needs medications make an appointment otherwise keep on trucking.
Any answers would be appreciated.
