messy. crazy. amazing. joyful.

We're not all officially ADHD. Dad's unofficial. Our ten-year-old twins have ADHD. Our seven-year old wants to have it because everyone is always talking about it. Our three year old has ADHD--just because she's three. And me, Mom, I think it's contagious. Who can remain untouched in a house where shoes seem to be lost every morning, instructions are routinely thrown aside, and fights erupt over which continent capybaras come from?

On to SSRI's

I'm trying to be on vacation, but also trying to record what's going on. Since Tuesday we have been titrating the Intuniv and starting on a low dose of Sertraline (Zoloft). Since our attempts with Focalin and Vyvanse did not work, we thought we'd hit the anxiety instead of the ADHD. Something is working now. I don't know whether it's the Sertraline or going off the Intuniv (or hanging out at the beach and running around all day) but the emotional outbursts are definitely decreasing. Luke is not sleeping as well, so that's a problem. But the days are going far better.
