  • You should look into a local group for women or mothers. Especially a local group for mothers of ADHD or special needs children if one exists. This will give you an understanding group of women who you can talk to and spend time with.

    Also, if you feel you can, you could try talking to your family and tell them what you have told us. They might surprise you.

  • I'm so sorry you are going through this. I truly feel for you. I am sad that I don't have solid advice for you. I would bump this question first thing in the morning, where you will get the most responses. I am SURE you are not alone. There are many parents dealing with ADHD children that can give you some very sound advice. As for your depression, I am a strong advocate of counseling. Just for you my dear. Cafemom is a good outlet too. We are here for you. Things will get better. We women are resilient. You are so much stronger than you think! Hang in there.
