“Little Lies Spouses Tell” is an interesting article the appeared recently. Its theme is that a little “buffering” may make a marriage happier. But you have to be careful. Trust is the cornerstone of a good marriage. It’s not what you say but how you say it that is very important.
A new study finds that ADHD often follows children into adulthood with other mental health disorders. This new study is worth a second look. To me an early accurate diagnosis is extremely important. ADHD is sometimes a catchall diagnosis for children when they are inattentive, impulsive or acting out. The causes could be attributed to other issues such as anxiety, depression or family stressors. A dual diagnosis, such as ADHD and anxiety can also exist. An early and complete diagnosis and a treatment plan is necessary. It may eliminate complications or a continuation of symptoms into adulthood.
