My ds started ADD meds this year so that he could stand the tedium of high school. We half home-school and I really want him to go to school full-time next year for a number of reasons. He's sort of o.k. with that - would rather do the relaxed way we do now - but I don't think I can handle it for another year (I work p.t., manage the household by myself because my dh has mental illness and my older son is getting ready for college.)
Ds 15 is growing quickly and he is so thin we can now see his ribs. The ADD med that he takes definitely reduces his appetite, and he's never been a big eater anyway. He had cereal for breakfast and supper yesterday because I worked until 9 p.m. (at 15 he can fix his own meal but doesn't choose to) and decided to go to bed hungry last night rather than take the time to make himself something. I had leftovers in the fridge but he rarely will eat leftovers. I'm going crazy here.
Any advice so appreciated.
