I have inattentive add, my seven year old is adhd, twelve year old has high functioning autism, and husband displays some characteristics of both. I joke that I am the captian of our spaceship. People lose stuff, forget what they are doing, lose track of time constantly. And because I’m the mom, I feel like I am responsible for managing them all. Lately I’ve been trying to focus on my own issues (you know, putting on my own oxygen mask first), so that I will be able to better care for others. I know the answers are different for everyone, but you are definitely not alone.
