ADHD and Mom Guilt
I have 2 daughters that I love more than life itself. My husband is an incredible father to my girls, but my word!? We both have mental health diagnosis. Mine a cake of childhood trauma and abandonment frosted with ADHD, Depression, and anxiety. My 4 year old is showing some clear behaviors at home that make me think that she is going to be getting an ADHD diagnosis as well. I try so hard to "gentle parent" her, but how in the world do I do that successfully while I get so over stimulated and overwhelmed being the default parent? My dear sweet husband is so emotionally inept that I deal with the melt downs and fits most of the time, and when it happens while I need a break the guilt of being a bad mom sets in. Any other moms deal with this? Tips? Heck, even just your experiences are welcome.
