This is an ongoing blog -
the never-ending story of treating my son's persistent biochemical and psychological disorders.
It is printed here with his permission, under an assumed name.
The saga is quite long, so I have divided it into chapters, each a separate web page.
Below is the table of contents.
Each chapter links back to this index for easy navigation.
Feel free to
to me, the author of this blog,
or check out my home page.
Over the years this has become more than just a description of one child's adhd.
The blog has expanded to cover many physical and psychological conditions that have affected my family,
including headaches, asthma, learning disabilities, teen pregnancy, adoption, unemployment, drugs, jail, bankruptcy, and family dynamics.
There's a lot going on,
an dat times we are stressed almost to the limit.
I am not trained in medicine, pharmacy, nutrition, or psychology,
hence I am not qualified to give advice in any of these areas.
(Damnit Jim, I'm a computer programmer, not a doctor!)
What follows is merely a personal account of my son's condition
and the methods we employ to treat it.
These methods are not generally applicable,
and may not be appropriate for you or your child.
If you are battling ADHD,
or any other chronic condition,
physical or psychological,
you are encouraged to work directly with your physician, pharmacist,
therapist, or nutritionist.
In fact you might want to seek advice from all these specialties;
you never know which mode of treatment will prove most effective.
