I don't visit this group much, but I totall sympathize. My son is almost 13 and has PDD, depression, ADHD, and he thinks he also has a bit of OCD but it's not diagnosed by a dr. I'm a single mom and I work full time during the school year. I am ready for the kids to get back to school because he needs so much more structure than summer provides. His behavior is driving me crazy and his dad is of very little help. Feel free to message me if you want.
My son is 13 has pdd, severe anxiety, major depressive disorder, odd, ocd, just to name a few. He takes 10 1/2 pills a day. I'm also a single mother. I struggle with how to disipline him at times, and trying to get him to get out of the house. He uses his hand as a puppet when he talks and has been teased for that and not being into sports. He is going on his 3rd year of homebound and hopefully will get back into public schools next school year. It is hard to give advice on how to deal as everyone deals differently. I use reading and my bedroom as a means of relaxation when I can. Maybe some of the other moms have better suggestions.
HI welcome! My dd of 11 has PDD, MD:NOS, ID, ADHD, and a long list of other stuff. You are for sure in good company here.!
