My DD is L7-L8, if injury heals, fingers crossed. My question is, do your kids go nuts when they have time off from the gym. DD trains about 20 hours per week. I should tell you she has an extreme case of ADHD with a little OCD. She is on meds from this and does extremely well as long as she can burn off that excess energy at the gym. Problem is, she has a cast on now and only trains 2-3 hours instead of the full time because of the injury. She beggs her coaches to let her stay or she volunteers at the gym to work with the younger campers. When the gym is closed or there is no volunteer work available, she drives me completely nuts. It is like she does not know what to do with herself unless it is gym related. I work from home because of my kids busy schedule, so when she is not at the gym she is constantly bugging me to death. Does anyone else have this problem? It seems unhealty that she so identifies her whole world with being at the gym. Just wanted to know if any of you had suggestions as to why this is and what I can do about it so I can get some work done.
