Maxwell's Synaptol Journey
For several years our family has struggled with our son Maxwell's ADHD. He has a Sensory Processing Disorder causing his struggle to be even worse. We sit in a conference every year with his teacher and hear "we either need to hold him back or pass him and he will just never get some things". This was not acceptable. His second grade teacher at the end of last year was very supportive. She was as upset as we were. She supported us in anything that helped him learn. After some research and thought we decided we had to move him to an environment that could enrich him more one on one. So we decided homeschooling was the route we would take. Since I could not take off work we found a community type homeschool program. He goes a modified day. There are two adults and 13 kids. This program works well for us but less than a quarter in we have had the wiggle worm, he cannot concentrate discussion. We have also stopped getting invited to functions because he is so disruptive. We do not want to medicate him but it is definately time to address the ADHD. After sitting in the peditricians office almost in tears he agreed that trying Synaptol was an acceptable route to take. I went home, got on the phone with John at Hello Life and placed the order.
Yesterday afternoon our Synaptol arrived. We gave Maxwell his first dose this morning. He is as excited and as hopeful as we are. He had not wanted to take liquid but I bribed him a bit to just try one dose. He tried it and said "That does not taste bad. If it makes me chill out I will do it for you." So dose #1 in and we will wait a few days and see what happens. This is just the beginning of our Journey and for the first time in a long time we are embarking on a journey that we feel will be filled mostly with happiness, progress and even new adventures when we start doing new things again. Mostly for my own therapy I will Blog our journey but I hope others who are embarking on or have already taken the journey will join us.
