I have been married for (1) year. I have a 5 year old daughter, from previous marriage, 7 wk old from current hubby, and stepson, who is also 5. Within the first several months of knowing I could tell that his behavior was not in the norm. He has been diagnosed with ADHD 2 months ago and is on adderall xr 25mg, which we've had lot of success, still adjusting medication dosage though. His bio mom died of cancer while he was an infant, so for all purposes, I am his mommy and he calls me mommy of his own accord. husband has finally accepted his ADHD, but it has been a battle every step with him and his family, with me alone in the battlefield. Actually, still a battle with-husband. difficult child was expelled from pre-k in March. (But before he was diagnosed and on medications). difficult child's psychologist recommends getting him tested through school where he'll start Kindergarden for speech and developmental (emotionaly) delays. Its been a hard road this past year. difficult child is very argumentative and defiant at times and has trouble communicating which caused him to have violent outburst, but here lately since seeing psychologist instead of lashing out he cries more when dissapointed. Psycho. says step up in maturity, so good sign. I guess I am here because I don't get support at home from husband, and my daughter doesn't get the attention she used to because difficult child demands sooooo much of mine. husband constantly critizes my parenting of difficult child although its obvious he's made significant progress. It hurts so bad, If I didn't care about his son I swear I would have called it quits if just for husband's attitude alone and interference/criticism from m-i-l. I joined this site to give/get support. It helps to know I am not alone.
