So once I had come to terms with having a child with special need my life slowly became just normal to me because I got use to it I went on to have another daughter who fitted in great but it was like having 2 babies because Thomas was so delayed, then I became a single parent it was hard work the hardest I’ve ever done but was so so rewarding so we just plodded along for a few years then In 2007 I moved to Wales to be with my husband and the whole hospital appointments started up again because Thomas was not progressing as he should so his school Dr ordered test from what felt like every specialist going, I am so thankful that he did so at the end of 2009 beginning of 2010 Thomas was diagnosed with ADHD to me I think I did the whole denial thing because I always thought the child had to be wild for them to have ADHD and Thomas was not yes he was very hyper but we could control him in a sense. The conversation of the dreaded medication come up which made me feel sick to the pit of my stomach. I told them I didn’t want him not to be him so they came up with Medikinet XL10mg it’s a slow release medication that we give him 1 hour before school so it starts to work for the start of school and will wear off just at the end of school time, the 1st time I picked up the prescription from the chemist was awful because I had to provide identification and the tablets came out of the safe this alone made me not want to let him swallow that tablet but I knew I had to do it for him to be able to concentrate better in school. I am glad I did his school work as come on loads and he can finally sit and do a little task well sort off we still have the odd day when he refuses to do anything that was not his idea. Since we moved to Wales we have added another 2 children to our ever growing family so life is hectic, I love every second of it.
