First I want to tell you, you are not alone. Hang in there. I know that is easier said than done. My 6 year old was just resently diagnosed ADHD and started Strattera about 2 weeks ago. My family does not believe ADD or ADHD exists. My brother calls it a reason to be lazy. I was diagnosed ADD about 9 years ago and telling my family was like running as fast as you can into a brick wall.I didn't get anywhere.When I told my family about my 6 year old, it was pretty much the same reaction I got years ago when I told them I have ADD. My husband's sister has been very supportive. What helps is finding someone you trust, someone you know won't judge you, to talk to. Being ADD has helped me understand what my son is going though, but my husband gets very frustrated with him. The meds have helped my son's behavior. It is hard sometimes even though I am ADD too, but you just keep going and try to do the best you can. Boards like this one are a great source of support. Do you have someone close to you that you can trust? I hope this helps. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Hang in there. You are not alone. Please post again and let us know how you are doing.
