I know just what you are going through as I feel the same. Is your daughter on the gfcf diet? If so have you seen any diffrence in her? I ask because I have my 6 year old on it he is ADD Innatentive type, cannot focus comes home every day with all school work not done. Has she been tested by the school child study team. They have to provide her an education wether you med or not. I have decided not to medicate and the school does not like the fact that I am not. I am seeking alternatives to medication and I am trying the diet as one thing plus a bunch of suppliments that a doctor recommended. I have hired an advocate to help me fight the school to get him the help he needs and they are not treating her like they did me just a stupid parent. Fight for your childs rights and I know it is hard my husband is not to active in my endevors he says he will grow out of it. The best thing you can do is to get educated on your rights and try to stay strong for your kids. I have been having a hard time keeping it together for my son I am going to try to get some kind of support group but I dont know many in my area. If you want to mail me private feel free to vent I know I could use it too.
s all talk he just says he will help and never does nothing. I do not want to
: fight with him anymore because he will never change. He does love his kids but has not energy to do
: anything except work. I pray every night for the strength to keeping because I am getting so weak and
: am hitting all dead ends. Without my children I have no life but right now with me they have no life. What
: do I do?
