i just took an "ADHD questionnaire" on behalf of #1 son. we've wondered for some time if he has some trouble with this.
he scored 28 - "very severe ADHD behaviors."
gee, are we stupid or what? we've wondered if this could be affecting him, but never thought he really had it. well, DH was certain he didn't (when did he get HIS psych degree?), and i wondered, repeatedly, but didn't want to fight about it.
time to get down and nasty, i guess.
here's the link to the questionnaire: https://healthmanager.webmd.com/webmd/advHQ/GuestUser.aspx?StartID=1003
now i'll see if MY symptoms apply!
addendum: mine were in the "mild" category; may not be due to ADHD. of course, if you checked ANY boxes, you got mild. so i'm pretty comfortable with my current psychiatric state!
some days it just doesn't pay to chew through the leather straps.
addendum 2: appointment scheduled for 3/1/07 - will keep posted at this space!
