good, so u got some ideas, i have heard food colourings such as orange can have an affect. perhaps reduce anything orange in the diet, and try and use as many natural things as possible. im sure ur doing all the right things, it's just a hard situation to be in! but i'd dfe see a dr, and how long have u been on the meds for, some can take 6 weeks or so to start working!

all the best x

Thankyou very much I am on anti depressants but they don't seem to be helping I tgo to well being workshops around Ashtons behaviour and there's a woman there and she recognised the symptoms and she said her daughter was the same at his age and she got diagnosed with A.D.D which is boarderline A.D.H.D

poor you! i think ur best option is to get some time out. see a councillor or a dr and chat to them. get it all out in the open! why doesnt the 9 mo sleep? my friend had pnd and she was on meds and saw a councillor, she got thru it, a single mum with a 2 yo. sorry if this isnt much help.

good luck xxx
