help or guidance plz
my 6 year old so to be 7 year old son has been diagnosed with combined adhd. his pedi first stop was to put him on meds. now i have nothing agents meds, but i dont want it to be our first stop. i asked the doctor about alternatives, and her answer was alternatives are garbage and to stop reading anything about them on-line because the dont work and there is no proof they do any good or work. i was shooked, most i talk to said there doctor was encoring to try different things. but i told her i was ready to try meds just yet, she wasnt to happy but said ill give you 3 month to try your way then come back and when you see it dosnt work we’ll put him on meds she gave me a ton to read all on meds but i didn’t find any of it help full. the 3 months she gave me a had a hard time find anyone to help me in the medical i did find a homeopath doctor but none of her help is covered by our insurance ( were in canada in case you are wondering) i tried to change his diet but between his father not help at all and only having 3 months to get the changes working i didnt get anywhere close to find anything, when i went back i told we were going the way we where now so i could have more time to get other thing in place and try them first. i am going this alone no one in my family is behind me and my son’s grandmother thinks its all about me do what i want to prove a point to the doctor, or that i wont give up because i dont want to be defeated, why cant people see i am doing what i think is best for my son, that if there is something natural or better the medication, then thats the way i want to go first. i am so frustrated with everyone around me for not trying to support me and trust i know my son and whats best for him. my own health problem dont help either ( i was diagnosed with depression 4-5 years ago i am on meds and doing the best i can) i looking for help advice and guidance plz i am feeling so lost.
