I'm an ADDmommy, with 3 kids; my oldest also has ADHD. I'm a single mom too - which makes things 10 times harder sometimes I think...
What works for me, in a nutshell, is taking my medication like I'm supposed to; keeping a routine; and learning to say No to things that are just too much for me to do. I also try to break things down into smaller tasks, and I use timers to keep me from hyperfocusing on something for too long.
