I don't want to add to your guilt but it is very obvious that your daughter has a real problem and this is not behaviour that she could simply put on. She is certainly not lazy.You have given a superb description of your daughter's symptoms and behaviour.She does not fit the picture of a typical child with an ADD problem.She does extremely well at school. She certainly does not have the hyperactive component. She does have a problem with concentration but this may be related to her sleep disorder.Her sleeping pattern is obviously not normal.Many of her symptoms are suggestive of depression. She may have some narcolepsy but her symptoms are not consistent enough to be sure about this diagnosis either. It is important for your daughter to be examined and investigated by a paediatric neurologist before any medication is started. You first need a definite diagnosis.
