ADHD Awareness Week is October 14 – 20, 2012. We were chosen to parent a child with ADHD, so this week is all about awareness and giving you a peek into our world. There are seven facts listed on the ADHD Awareness Week web page that I thought I would share this week – one each day. Here’s fact six:
Fact #6: ADHD is nobody’s fault.
Could it be that I ate too much processed food while I was pregnant with him? I just couldn’t get enough of fried hotdogs and applesauce for breakfast every morning! NOPE!
Could it be because we moved to a different state, had a new baby, and suffered the loss of a (grand)parent? We didn’t really pay any attention to what he could’ve been thinking or feeling during that roller coaster year. NOPE!
Could it be because PB is his PB? I always call him an undiagnosed adult with ADHD (love you, dear!). NOPE!
It’s nobody’s fault…really? I have a hard time with this fact. Can’t I blame it on someone?!
Peace and Blessings!
