    This is for the MD -
    I am 26 years old, I am a very devoted christian, mother, and wife. I was just diagnosed with inattentive and hyperactive ahdh on Friday. It took me a very long time to admit I needed help and to go in and get diagnosed. I am successful working for a clinic but struggle tremendously with juggling everyday things...... Anxiety, schedule changes, chores, staying active, staying committed to things, being organized etc. I try very very hard and want to do good in life. Now I need advice from an MD on here...... I have an 8 mo. Old and a husband that's working full time and going to school full time so I have A LOT going on. I go on meds next week I have stop breastfeeding ( I am upset) but I know this is what I have to do. HELP this momma!!!
