Meghan's assessment

Meghan had her screening done the other day at her pediatrician. From what myself and the preschool teacher put down on the paperwork, She scored high on ODD and ADHD. I wasn't surprised on the ADHD, but the ODD was a different story. I had no idea what it was.

The doctor explained all the symptoms and it fit her to a T. I've always known since she was three that there was something wrong with her. I just didn't want to believe it. So now I'm waiting on the Dr to get Meghan a appt with the neurologist so they can do further testing.

The Dr believes Meghan could benefit from medicine but because of her age she may have to wait. They would like to try therapy first, I don't care what they try as long as she gets better. She is having a lot of issues in school right now and she isn't able to learn like she should.


  1. Hey Jessica, i just wanted to tell you that I am so encouraged my you actions. I don't know you a caught you on the WordPress feed, It sounds like you are proceeding with things in a calm and loving way. It was also nice to hear that your main concern was for the betterment of Meghan. Too many people are more concerned with the judgement of other people regarding medication or no medication. I grew up ADHD and wasn't diagnosed until 29. If I can be of help or answer any questions i have a lot of resources on line. Pleasure to find you.

  2. Hi there,thank you for the comment. This past year has been a tough road for me and her. But your right, I could care less what other people think. My main goal is for her to get better and to be able to adjust to things a lot better.
