On the phone with my parents a few days ago, they mentioned that my sister-in-law had called them about my nephew. He is a bright red-haired who suffers from ADHD – this was diagnosed about three years ago.
At that time he was given Ritalin but had to stop after a few months as he had too little appetite and had even lost some weight.
He is in junior high school where he learns the cornet and singing but might get suspended from the singing lessons as his behaviour is too unstable, something which saddens him since he loves singing. His doctor has decided to put him back on Ritalin and he will see the school psychologist every week.
It seems little is known about this disorder and it is still a controversial issue.; some people still think it does not even exist. So if you know people who feel they have managed to handle this disease or at least cope with it, don’t hesitate to leave a message on this blog.
