Hello, all. I sought out this group out of desperation. I do not know where to turn. We are a family of 5. My husband, 20yo son, and 12yo son all have ADHD. My 16yo daughter lacks the H but still has the ADD. My husband is the biggest issue, as I feel like his ADHD literally wrecks our marriage on a daily basis. Everyone is medicated, including him, but I don’t feel like his med does anything. He says it does because he “manages” work just fine. It’s everything else he manages terribly.
I’m aware that I’m full of resentment. Mom is the absolute last person anyone considers. And I’m starting to be seen in a negative light because I’m in a bad mood all the time. Over the last few years, I have developed my own issues, I believe as a result of the stress I’m always under with our family. I have developed pretty significant anxiety and sensory issues. My doc even put me on a medication to help focus because sometimes I am just all over the map. I didn’t used to be that way. I think managing this family has truly made me that way.
We are on vacation right now and all I want to do is sit in my room away from all of them. I love them all dearly, but I can’t handle being around them all and managing all of this anymore. I’m burnt out! Help!
