    You just need the right medication (no..talk therapy won’t work in my experience) to correct the chemical imbalance..probably a boost of dopamine. Find the money for to make an appointment with a drug dealer (psychiatrist) and get you some happy pills! I knew a person who couldn’t get out of bed and now is a director of operations! You’ll need to research on your own what drugs will benefit you for the money and bring that up to your doctor. For example..EVEKEO helped my son and they have first 30 days free..then $30 a month for a year. I’m also ADD and they put me on VYVANSE which was $200 a month (uh no thanks!) So I got my doctor to prescribe generic Adderall.. Describe your symptoms to doctor and have a list of affordable drugs to bring up to your doctor. Once you fix the chemical imbalance in your brain..you will have a better outlook on life and you will gain motivation..everything else will fall into place. You are not worthless…create a plan and stick to it. You can do it! Keep us posted!

    That’s incredible! I agree with you on just having him home and teaching him when he’s fresh. I’m eager/nervous to see how first grade goes. If it goes anything like Kindergarten, I can definitely see taking him out of school.

    This has been my fear which is why I always choose to have vacation birthdays, family birthdays, or birthdays where I invite my friends with kids. I don’t like to invite his classroom of friends because I’m terrified he will be let down. Whether or not that’s the right thing to do or not, I just haven’t had the courage yet to do that. I have actually gone to every kids birthday party that I’ve been invited to because I’m worried that no one else will go (which usually there are 10+ kids). I hate going to kids birthday parties but birthday parties are such a big deal to kiddos that it’s important for us parents to show up if we can. So sorry this happened to you, I know the heartbreak.
