Stepson with ADHD

I've been with my husband for 4 yrs married 3. We were active duty military so that's why we married quick. Anyhow I've been in his sons life since he was 15 months. For the longest I thought he was rude disrespectful and just flat out didn't give a hoot about listening to adults however I now believe he has ADHD. This is tough. I have an 18 month old and another baby on the way. My stepson is now 5 and has tantrums at least twice a day and he will scream blood curdling screams for about an hr all over me taking a toy away or sending him for a time out. I'm afraid the cops are going to come knocking at my door every time and he also scratched himself. My husbAnd doesn't understand that it's a lot for me to deal with and it takes away from me taking care of my own child. He says I'm f$&@ed up for saying that. I don't think I'm wrong at all. My husband wants him full time bc his own mother can't handle him. How could he expect me to deal with something the kids own mom can't handle? Not to mention he doesn't do anything with his son but expects me to.
