Hi girls ..
Went to a peadiatric neurologist yesterday for miss 3 yo. He is looking into another medical matter of hers but also told me yesterday that she has ADHD. It’s really upset me. We are already on our own, just the two of us, things have been so stressful for the year I thought the worst was over. Now I’m overwhelmed by all these medical maybes with a definate case of ADHD.
I’ve been crying and can’t stop- already suffering from depression. I hate it. I feel like a bad mum, I feel I should be doing more, or things differently. I’m not thinking straight and scared to tell my doc coz I don’t want dhs sticking their noses in. Raaaaaah.. Tick tick tick…

  • i know that we can feel so much guilt as mums! i think that you should have a talk to your doc about the way you feel or call an anon line. do seek some sort of help just to help you deal and process everything that is going on. i am sure that you are doing a great job. Being a single mum would be so incredibly hard but i tip my hat to you.


  • with you knowing about it whilst she is young you can hopefully help her manage it successfully. good luck


  • Might be a good to see a counsellor for some support for you and your child. Sending well wishes your way as life can be overwhelming at times. xo


  • At least a diagnosis will let you develop a treatment plan.

    • True, thanx. I’m coming to terms with it and have changed her diet ect. Just need to keep positive!
