you know your child has ADHD, and are struggling so much, but no one will help you? I know I've posted on it before but..Yes, my son is young, too young to diagnose. I don't need a diagnosis now, but I need help for his specific problems. I don't need the normal parenting classes, I know I'm a good parent (even if I don't feel it most of the time) and that it's not my fault and anything I can change. I hate 'trying' to go out and do things with him and seeing other parents having fun and doing 'normal' things with their kids the same age as my son, and all I'm doing is feeling upset. I am stressed out on a daily basis, most days wishing I didn't have to take care of my son. I'm feeling so damn scared of my future, I am studying 12 hours a week from home starting next week, and due with my 2nd child in August. I don't know what I'm going to do.I won't be able to leave the house (shit, I barely can now with my son) but I go crazy at home and he's still the same at home, just easier for me to handle I guess. I don't want to do this anymore, I need help for his issues but no one is willing to give it to me. I just know in my heart I'm right about him..but I can't wait another 2, 3 years like this until he starts school. I don't want my second child to miss out because of my son. I just want a normal child! Any advice? Anyone else with a pre-schooler? Any websites, books out there for toddlers with ADHD? I've searched but found nothing of real use.
