    Talk to your school about either an IEP or 504C that reduces the required reading. For my daughter we had to read equally complex stories but not as much. No reason to stress over a grade when you can legitimately reduce the burden on everyone.

    Perhaps a “life coach”, not a family therapist, because what you are wanting is help with the structure of your lives.
    Second, another medical eval for your husband. ADD has some co-morbidities like depression and treating just one aspect is not enough.
    Lastly, and I mean very lastly – this book “Too Good to Leave, Too Bad to Stay”

    It may help to remember that your colleague didn’t suddenly change, you suddenly noticed, and now know that she can improve. I have gone through a similar cycle a few times, and remind myself that if I’m thinking like a hammer, all I will see are nails.

    You mentioned this is a small team. Is it also a small company? Is there someone you can get advice from to minimize your interactions? If you have a HR person, talk to him or her about your supervisor’s work practices and how they are impacting you. Communication classes are highly recommended for all managers in my company.
