I heard the desperation in your post, and I sympathize completely. I’m new to the whole world of ADHD with my 8-year old son, who’s very different from my teenage daughters. Today was an extraordinarily difficult day, and I don’t even have the energy to type out all that happened. I just wanted to connect with you and hopefully start a conversation. My husband clearly has ADD, but has not been diagnosed. He doesn’t even know where to begin and is often busy running our business, so I’m left with struggling to help our son by myself. I have anxiety, so it’s like someone with tremors doing brain surgery and I’m pretty sure I’m making matters worse. Anyway, I hope and pray for your family and mine that we can figure something out. At the very least, we can help pull each other through this.
