The first time Katie really started showing signs that there was more wrong with her than ADHD was in the early spring of 2017. Her behavior was becoming more erratic and she seemed less able to control certain urges. At 7 years old, these were not "normal" behaviors. She was aggressive at times, and there were many instances that her mood would swing so fast you had to duck!
However, we ignored it, because no one wanted to face the reality that there may be something else to deal with.
I was pregnant with baby #3 and this is not the kind of a stress you want piled on to an already stressful situation.
Once school started, however, we were forced to deal with the reality of facing our fears.
