Parents of ADHD Teens and Young Adults
Nineteen yr. old with ADHD
Hi. My son is 19. He did not finish high school this past year. As soon as summer arrived, he bought himself a one way ticket out of state to see his girlfriend and best friend. He has been there for almost 2 months and has finally agreed to come back home. He doesn’t want to go back to high school and be a “super senior”...instead he wants to get a GED. His plan is to go to community college after this for a couple of years and then transfer to a state college. What worries me is that he has major sleep issues and total lack of any kind of “drive”. We label him as being lazy but is that just the ADD? Or is that just his personality? He has not been on medication for several years. Thinking of trying meds along with counseling. What do you think??
