Hello my name is Angie and I have a 9 year old son who has ADHD and depression. It has been very hard, frustrating and difficult to deal with. It took me years to admit my son had a problem, one because of our race and how black people feel about admitting black kids havw ADHD. I have been told it's because his father is not in his life, but deep down I knew my son was not normal, he was unique and different. Second, because I guess I didn't want it to be true cause ibfelt it was my fault for the way I lived my life prior to me getting pregnant. Not that I was a drug addict or alcoholic, no I was diagnosed in my early twenties has being suicidal and depressed, but I was depressed way before that. I just didn't get diagnosed until I was in my twenties. That alone as a first time mom and single mom makes it has to except certain things. So now I have reach a point where I feel all alone in this battle and I have no one in my life that can relate to the things and challenges I face with my son. So I am looking for support from others like me so I don't loose my mind or explode because I am totally frustrated. So I hope to make some connections and hopefully someone on this site lives in my area so I can plan play dates or just someone to talk to when things get tough. Thanks for reading this and I hope to get the help and support I need. Thank you.
