Patient discussion about handle

Q. I am worried to a great extent…How can I handle this…. My 7 year old cannot read and remember to spell simple words like, in and on. She can’t even sort on some number like 15 or 51, which even the younger children can do? When I met her teacher in the parent’s meeting she has advised me to meet doctor as these symptoms may be due to ADHD. I am worried to a great extent…How can I handle this….

A. I agree with Justin's answer. Dyslexia is a problem where the eye sees letters or numbers out of order hence the inability to understand words as they are taught. I don't know a lot about it but a cousin's son had it and my own son was quite slow at learning to read. The school had me get him checked out for Dyslexia. He was given a number of eye/picture/word tests and he was fine. Just a little slow getting started which he picked up as he got older. So take heart and just take your child to your family doctor who can advise you where to get her checked out.

Q. Multiple diseases how do i handle them?

Q. How do you handle someone who has fibromyalgia and addicted to pills? I have no way of 100 % proving that she has overdosed in the past but I know she has. She was diagnosed with fibromyalgia in 1993 and its gone down hill from there. I feel that she is unstable and will take drastic measures. Is there a way to have her committed for her own good?

A. i think that what she needs from you is support. getting over addiction will not happen by force, a decision must be made so she'll take responsibility for her actions.
i wish you luck on you being a good friend.
