I am newly diagnosed with ADD myself. No meds yet. My therapist wanted me to try Strattera, but I need something for focus and concentration, my two biggest problems. Also, anxiety can mimic ADD, so a lot of doctors think it’s that in women. You are very overwhelmed and over-scheduled so I would cut one activity off from each child. My kids do one activity a week and I stay home and still feel stressed. It’s just my personality. My mom was the same. Have a glass of wine and relax at night maybe!
