Hi. I'm just new, although I have read a bit here on and off for awhile.
I have an almost 6 year old (DS) dx with severe ADHD, and I suspect SPD. He was also dx as gifted. He takes Concerta and sees a naturopath and also takes homeopathics. School is..a challenge for us. He's a very awesome kid, extremely bright and spiritual, scientific and creative. Asperger's has been thrown around over the past few years (mostly by professionals that are not doctors, ie teachers, friends) which has been denied by pedi and developmental pedi.
I have an almost 4 year old (DS) with a long extensive history of multiple/severe allergies (including anaphylaxis), mainly food. He also has dermagraphism (skin writing), oral allergy syndrome (not typical symptoms), recurrent periorbital cellulitus (caused by severe sinusitis). It has been a struggle to aquire help for him at times as he really is a case study (I'm not kidding) for our pedi and allergist. He also sees a naturopath and takes homeopathics. He will be starting JK September and he is the only child in the whole school with epipens (small school, 100 kids). So that will be a huge challenge..that and we currently have not figured out what the heck he's allergic to right now- I know it's preservatives, and I have my suspicions on a few, but...Allergist suspects possible auto immune disease..He's a kid that's loved by so many, he's quite easy going, often attracts older kids because of his personality (often teenager kids get a real kick out of him), he loves to play outside and is quite a simple child (compared to his brother).
I hope I fit in here..I can see others are dealing with a whole lot more than myself..although, IRL I feel like I'm dealing with a whole lot more than the typical family..so..
