Hello my name is Hillary i am a 32 yr old mother of 4 kids. A 13 yr old daughter a 9 yr old son and a 5 yr old daughter, and a 9 yr old step daughter.Here is a Breif history of my situation or life... My son Scott has been a handfull scence he was little from what i can remember. I dont know as much as a mother should about him when he was a baby cause I had to work all the time cause his father wouldn't and someone needed to provide for the family. So his father raised my oldest and my son till about 6 1/2 yrs ago. Then I decided to leane his father due to well the obvious... he was a loser.. anyways.. as a baby he was slow to reach regular milestones...such as crawling walking and talking...he didnt start talking till he was about 3 1/2 to 4 yrs old.. He has had many problems throughout school as far as listening and behaving.. he was diagnosed with (no supprise to me) ADHD..not a suprise cause i myself am a adult that when i was young had ADHD..and as an adult has learned through the years how to cope and deal with it. anyways .... A long story short we had a point in where i couldnt handle what was going on anymore and needed help to find out what was going on with him.. so i had him placed in an inpatient program. They then diagnosed him with anxiety, ADHD, ODD and PTSD. So everyday is a struggle with him.. he takes 20mg.of Aderal..and that helps a bit and we try to keep thing as routine as possible but....well as you would know life just happpens and well everymorning with him is a battle.and when he comes off his medications its hell in this house..my 5 yr old see him acting this way and is starting to immitate him... he will do good for everyone but me.. why?? I get so frustrated and try to understand why .. maybe cause i wasnt there for him as a baby ...i am now here to try to reach out to other that have been where i am and have any advise to share with me on how i can help him to be the awsome little guy i know he is.. HELP!!!!
