My oldest son is 12 and he struggles daily with severe ADHD, anxiety, PTSD, and ODD. As a mom it breaks my heart because I just want him to feel ok and be accepted. I tried homeschooling, he has been kicked out of youth group, and the school he was attending just wanted to call me everyday to pick him up. He now is attending a behavioral school that transports him to and from school everyday. We have changed some of his meds 3 times in last month. Geovani has had severe reactions to medication changes so this just intensifies his anxiety. He has a therapy dog, a therapist, and we have done BHIS. He was placed in a PMIC facility years ago to get him on the right medication. We go see his psychiatrist usually every week to adjust medications. After this last week and another pill being prescribed, it was my breaking point watching him argue with the doctor he was not taking any new medication. Today marks his 5th day taking the oil and it is such a difference. The first night he slept all night without yelling and talking in his sleep. This was the first weekend I have enjoyed in months. I know that sounds like a horrible mother, but I couldn’t wait for Monday. As a single mom of four it gets stressful enough, but to add the intense behaviors on top of it. I would spend part of my day crying because I felt bad for my other children and I felt bad for him. He would fight with the kids and make every family activity a challenge. The worst part about your child having struggles and behaviors is knowing people don’t take the time to think that the Child doesn’t like acting this way. It is not that I am a horrible mother and he has no discipline. He is automatically judged as the “naughty kid” by teachers, police officers, and other parents. He woke up this morning asking for his oil first thing. There was not a single fight, nor did he curse (which is a huge problem). His doctor will admit Geovani is one of the most challenging cases. I was approached about different treatments such as “rewiring of the brain” with a program that Iowa City uses quite often. I wasn’t interested nor did I feel that was the answer. I didn’t know what the answer was. I now see my son again the helpful, happy, sarcastic, and loving boy. He doesn’t seem angry and nervous all day…These drops haven’t just helped Geovani, they have given my other 3 children hope that life is getting easier and that our Geovani is back.
