  • Stay positive. I know it is hard at times but its a way to get back on track. I have a friend that is ADHD & the good news is they can live a normal fabulous life! I can give you suggestions so feel free to contact me. I'm here on cafemom often. I know that my friend has to eat healthy & she refuses to eat any processed foods & only eats natural things. This keeps her on the straight & narrow. Find your son a hobby that involves any type of exercise. This will be GREAT for him. You have friends & that's great but make new ones too! Get yourself out there & more involved to make you & your son live a more healthy lifestyle. This will help you stay busy & helps the days that you miss your husband. Do this for yourself first & then work on the ones that surround you. Make a list of things you want to accomplish. It's going to take time so be patient, have faith & believe in yourself.

  • if his meds don't work, change it. don't keep him on the same meds, there are many and one will fit his symptom. my dh left 9 months ago, and i'll never feel complete until the day he comes home. find things in your community maybe on post, to do with your son. from my experience, no meds work better than excercising and outdoor activities with adhd kids. how old is he?

  • i'm with you on that one! i just try to go to playdates as much as possible, and keep my kids on a schedule. my kids are feeling it, they're acting up cuz of daddy being gone, especially my son. i just stay strong for the kids and take it one day at a time.
