I'm a single mom for the secound time. I have 4 kids. My parents have been a great help though. The last few months have been hard. We had to move do to financial reasons. Kids were not happy. School has resently started. My oldest son all of a sudden needs glasses. He is also going through an autism screening. My youngest son is always angry. He is getting in trouble at school and on the bus. He is only 6. He is on adhd meds which helps but when it wares off he lashes out. Homework is near imposible. Sometimes a have to hold and rock him until his fit wares him out. My girls are just whiney and argue, that i can handle. Plus I'm trying to balance collage. Bedtime is a battle on top of other things. I can barely sleep. I have no apitite. The stress is making me physically ill, i have constant raging headaches and i just want to cry. I've been handling it well up til now but i feel like I've hit a brick wall and it's taking it's toll on me. Any advice? I know I'm not alone in these struggles.

Thank you Latoya and Hazel. I found out a few days ago the pharmacy gave my son the wrong adhd meds. We are now back on track so hopeful in the next few days he should start calming down. I find out 9/31 the results of the autism screening. Wish us luck. Love to all ya moms. Lets keep smiling epectly when it's hard to.
