Adhd

Patient

Q: My 10 year old daughter is getting tested for dyslexia but i think she is showing signs of adhd aswell.She suffers from anxity,finds it hard to make friends,likes been around adults more than children,interuppts me when im speaking to someone all of the time,if im on the phone she wants to know who im speaking to even though i have told her not to do it but she still does it.She has a fear of sick and thats all she talks about,she likes to be the centre of attention all the time and does random things like for example she stood in the middle of the road with her hand on her hip and called me to look at her i asked her why she does these things and she says she doesnt know why and i truly believe she cant help it.She cant follow instruction very well,she is very quick witted and adults think she is so funny which she is but she also has a very nasty streak in her but can be really nice at times to.She has mood swings and is very stubborn,to get her to do something depends on her mood or i end up shouting at her,she just doesnt listen to me ,she will remember details from years ago,and now she says that i have said something for example we will go shopping after school and she really believes i have said that and argues with me when i have said no such thing,all she ever does is moans about something,she goes into her own little world sometimes and doesnt seem to be growing mentally like other children are the list goes on and on .
