ADHD breakdown

  • Hugs Samantha.  Remember it's not you his words are focused towards...you just happen to be there and an easy target. And as their moms, their words strike us to the core of our beings. Hang in there.

    Love you!

  • As someone who is married to someone with ADD and Aspergers I am very truly sorry that you are having such a hard time. I assure you his words are just that, words. This disorder can be so frustrating (for an adult) I can only imagine how confusing it is for such a sweet little boy. I hope things calm down for you guys and he gets back to the sweet little guy you love so much.

    Hugs,

    Jami

  • Oh Samantha,

    I'm so sorry! We deal with meltdowns often, it is rough!

    Huge hugs!

    My son has ADHD and mornings are sometimes a nighmare, but we work through them. I wish you the best.

  • My nephew who is 8 doesn't have ADHD and he says things like this often. The other day he was talking about how he'd rather be dead and what it would say on his tombstone. He has no concept what that does to me. None. I wonder too, how he can be so sweet and happy one minute and so completely unbalanced the next.

    I hope you're having a better day.
