ADHD

edited April 2019 in Parents and carers
I'm 40 years old with a diagnosis of combined type ADHD and under review, hopefully to be removed emotional unstable personality disorder and am fairly certain I'm also an undiagnosed Aspie. I have 3 children 14 yr old son, currently under his second opinion for ADHD as his former school apparently filled out the Connors assessment wrong according to his new school, so now awaiting results of the new forms and an undiagnosed Aspie, 9 yr old son 100% diagnosed combined type ADHD and on meds and no signs of anything else and a 5 yr old daughter who is display similar traits to both me and her eldest brother.

    Hello @drewsyla and welcome to the community! :)

    I'm glad your eldest son's new school has picked up the errors and are working with you towards a diagnosis. 

    Are you getting much support for yourself or your other children at all?
