I am so frightened for my Grandson.
He has not been performing well in school.
My Daughter's family Dr., after a healthy discussion with her/ him and having him answer a
couple pages of questions, desided to place him on Adderall
First 5mg once a day then 5mg 2 times a day(could not sleep at night).
Next 10mg once in morning,
graduateing to 30mg once each day.
Now my daughter gets his report card with teacher comments on it takes it to the Dr. and the Dr.
(with my daughters permission) switches him to Ritalin LR.
At 20mg a day.
I am in tears. I don't wan't him on any of "their" drugs.
Actually he never has had much of an intrest in school at all.
Does not participat
Does not finish in class work
Does not bring homework home
Even if he does homework he does not bother turning it in
I talked to her till I'm blue in the face about the fact that they eat crap for food
and that Diet can make all the difference in the world for all of us.
She chooses to remain ignorant of truth.
She also seems to believe that her own weight problem (320lbs)
will get better if she watches her salt intake. It will help but That is not the full scope of the problem.
Now I amd trying to make her see that they are yet again putting more poison into this precious boy.
Did I mention that we have a history of alcohol and drug addiction in our family
(amongst many others issues).
I feel so helpless, wanting to stop them from forced drug use on a child, being ignored when
showing her the dangers of these drugs.
Anger,fear and tears
