“The Truth” by Good Charlotte, music only
I guess it is only appropriate that this is my 250th post. It’s a milestone for me personally and a defining moment for my middle son, Dylan.
I finally got a call from Dylan’s psychologist yesterday and Dylan has been officially diagnosed with ADHD. I haven’t received all the results yet, just verbal confirmation on how to proceed.
“Dylan scored way above average on perceptual reasoning and average on verbal comprehension. He has an average working memory but a low processing speed. He’s a visual learner and will need visuals to help reinforce learning.”
I’ve started the process of having Dylan’s medical records transferred to Davis’ pediatrician and talked to the nurse to schedule the appointment to have him evaluated for medication.
This is a very emotional time for me, especially since I’ve been noticing some issues with my youngest son as well. I’ve been grieving inwardly and trying to come to terms with my vision vs. my reality of the family I’m raising.
I’m a terrible liar – yep even to myself. ha ha I feel that even though it can be very tough, knowing the truth is better than living in denial. “Truth Hurts!” Who ever came up with that phrase wasn’t kidding.
I guess it’s time to finish reading all the books I’ve been collecting on the subject. Drat! I need some quality time in my bathroom.
