ADHD

My mother phoned me yesterday. Apparently my 9-year-old nephew is under investigation for suspected ADHD (that sentence makes it sound as if he's a criminal or something... not quite sure how else to put it in English though).

So she calls me and tells me this, and somehow she thinks I'll know everything about it and be able to tell her that it's alright and everything will be fine... except how could I? I don't know much about it, so I can definitely not tell her that everything is alright, and what I do know about the medications that are sometimes used is not exactly going to calm her, since a majority of them are controlled drugs - or, as they are called in Sweden - "narcotics". Yeah, that'll soothe her fears, alright.

*sigh* Sometimes it just sucks living in a different country from your family.

In cheerier news, my cousin is getting married, so Andrew & I will be doing another trip to Japan next year.
