I get lots of feedback from newsletters, which I appreciate – and enjoy – very much. One reader, an ADHD mom, had read about my mixed feelings when our oldest son Ron decided to go back on medication. (Ron is in college.) She sent me the most interesting thought. Like Ron, she is on medication, which initially made her feel very guilty. She wrote that she now considers the ADHD medication, “a daily reminder that I can’t do it on my own, I have to leave it to God.” Cool thought, which I immediately passed on to Ron. By the way, Ron says the meds continue to make a HUGE and important difference for him. His grades reflect that difference.
Our decision about putting one of our sons on medication is chronicled here.
