Im 25 have 4 kids and a single mom while in nursing school. I am severly ADHD.. I am loosing my mind and feel soo overwhlemed.. I try to research how to manage it but of course being adhd its all so much for me to read or think about. I just HAVE to find some peace with this and figure a way to manage my life and stop letting this control it... I have evry symptom there is and I am on medication but I am looking for a way to control it along with the meds.. My house and vehicle is a disaster and I am never sitting so its not cause im just lazy or dont care.. It drives me crazy and I want it all neat and organized but get overwhelmed and start cleaning or organizing one area see something else thengo there.. its to the point im loosing important things and papers.. for both me and my kids.. and my main thing is I cant even disipiline my kids cause I forget what I have already punished them from or what i told them to do.. I want to teach them to clean up their areas of play but in the meantime im so crazy Im making them crazy... I know this can be a learned behavior as well so I def dotn want them picking up on this.. their dad is COMPLETE opposite.. his house and vehicle is always spotless.. no clutter.. so I want it for them at my house... Im always late never on time.. i feel my house is never clean enough to even enjoy my time with my kids I just have clothes, papers, toys, bottles, dishes, just crap everywhere. I know its not a big deal to gave a few toys and stuff out but why cant I just get anything on track? I literally got gas a couple weeks ago and drove away and never realized i didnt go in to pay for it.. (I did a few days later when the manager told me) but never thought twice about ti... I know I have alot going on but I need some sort of structured plan to go by to figure this out.. if anyone can give me some advice on how I can figure this out.. I hope it will help.. I want to be able to go through life and deal with this in a positive way.. THANK YOU IN ADVANCE!!!!!!!!!
