I'm an ADHD mom with 6 kids (4 have been diagnosed with ADHD, one severely and one has mood disregulation disorder AND adhd but can only take meds for the mood thing) and I feel like everything is spiraling out of control. I'm on medication, have kept my job for over 2 years, but more and more I feel like I can't handle anything that's thrown at me. I'm on Concerta and Strattera. Could the medication be making me freak out? It's not like off my meds I felt like I did better, but it seems like I'm more distressed than I used to be.. that could be my ADHD memory, too. I'm so overwhelmed all the time. The house never seems to stay clean for longer than 5 minutes... oh.. one of the kids is 3... and she's the reason my room is never tidy... another reason my room is never tidy.. I'm losing my mind.. or at least I feel like I am. And it's depressing me, this endless loop of mess that won't go away or give me any freedom to do fun things.View Thread
