Please – rant away. I work with one who doesn’t even have kids and tells me how to handle an ADHD son. These people are like 20 years younger than me and are arrogant enough to give me advice. I’m up at 4am staring at the ceiling wondering if my son can get into college and if he does how in hell is he going to finish an assignment without me standing over him asking him if he remembers when it will be due. He can’t join the military because they don’t take anyone who’s been on ADHDmeds wishing the past 3 years, I’m afraid he’ll be living in my basement when he’s 30. And all I want is for him to have a happy normal life. If I believed in God I’d be angry at him. But I guess I’m just angry.
