外围体育投注I am really surprised that there aren't more posts on this subject right now, and I'm very desperate for any advice anyone has.

外围体育投注What do you do with an ADHD parent who is desperately trying to work from home (especially work that requires focus) with an ADHD kid who interrupts every 10 - 15 minutes?

外围体育投注We barely made it through the spring, and now we're facing a whole school year. Our district is doing distance ed at least until November, but I doubt the kids will go back to school.

I understand that ADHD kids need structure and schedules. And I understand that ADHD adults do well with structure and schedules. And we don't have that at all. I feel like my ADHD got twice as bad, because there are so many external interruptions, now.

I cannot possibly be the only person here dealing with this. What do we do?!

外围体育投注Do you guys have any advice? I’m not sure I’m looking for anything specific, maybe just things you wish you had known, or maybe specific types of things I should bring up with my dr? I’m just super nervous and any and all words of wisdom would be helpful!

Follow up to my last post. I got a new psych who said before I had a baby and was off Adderall I was probably compensating for my ADD and I hit a wall with baby and it got hard to deal. She said depression and anxiety can manifest when ADD’s untreated. I have been having a hard time taking care of baby (I feel sluggish/unmotivated) and being inattentive with her I feel due to my ADD, and it’s made it hard to bond.

My husband read LactMed and listened to what psych said and said he’s uncomfortable bc the long term neurological effects are not well studied and the possibility of abuse. I was prescribed 10mg IR twice a day, was going to start at 5 and not go above 10 of the dosage worked. LactMed says 0.7% of the maternal dose is in breast milk and my doc said it’s safe.

So we were talking and finally my husband goes, “Fine, just take it. But if you hurt the baby I will never forgive you and if you abuse it I’ll leave you.”

I don’t know what to do, take it and he stays mad or not take it and please him but keep having trouble. We go to couples therapy and I have a fear (probably irrational) that our therapist will say I’m doing anything just to be on meds. But I am外围体育投注 having a hard time. Or maybe he would help my husband see the facts about how small the dose is. Any advice? Thank you.

Love & be kind to yourself. Practice self - care. Take your medicine (and do everything in your power to ensure you never forget a dose!)

I spent all of yesterday in agony and cried on and off all evening for utterly no reason except that I couldn't remember if I had taken my pills or not until it was too late lol time for a pill organizer 😅

Have a lovely day, xoxo
