School started this week we were so excited but at the same time we were so nervous because in a way we already knew what was going to happen.I have a 4 year old son who was diagnosed with adhd. He has been attending occupational and speech therapy for the past 2 years. Just about 2 months ago he has been progressing and is only 4 months behind but the change is something very exciting for us. He started pre kinder, he was so excited. The very first day of school, I let his teacher know that my son has adhd. They said it was fine and that he wasn't the first if there were to be any trouble they were going to be notifying us. Last year we put him in the 3 year old program and was kicked out because they said he was TOO BIZARRE and NOT NORMAL, (those were their words.) I cried so much it hurt me so much to hear someone say that about my son.The Dr put him on meds and was referred with a counselor which we visited once a week. My husband is in denial and refuses to believe that there is something wrong with our son. I believe that this comes from his side of the family because he has a nephew who has adhd as well, and his other nephews show symptoms are way too much of a handful. We are Mexican so they always say "oh well back int he day there was no such thing hes just spoiled." I have learned that I cannot spoil my son at all because I do its a sure problem the next time we g out. I love my son so much, my babies are my entire world. I cannot even get a job or go out to visit anyone its too much for me to handle with him. There are times when my family gets together and they dont bother to call me because my son always acts up. Three says into school this year and they already told me that I have to take him out. That he is not ready for school and should come back next year. I was so upset with the principal, that I let her have a piece of my mind. Last year they told me that they had a special program for kids that were hyperactive but it wasn't special ed. Turns out it was a lie. For the life of me I cannot understand why if a teacher get so much training why do they not get trained to deal with kids with adhd. They told me my son needed to be in special ed because he was not normal. He was crying so much in school that he went running out of the class, he kicked and bit his teacher. All I want my son is to have a semi normal life why is it so hard for the school to understand that. He is so smart he knows his ABC's, his numbers, he just doesn't know how to express it at times. I have had people laugh at him asking him if he is speaking an alien language, if he is Asian. It breaks my heart so much. All of this has been too much for me I have fallen into depression, my husband blames me for my child's behavior. I don't know what to do anymore, everybody tells me that I am putting a label on my son for saying he has adhd but he does have it 4 doctors have already told me so, but I cant find support anywhere. I feel so alone in this. Please if anyone can give me some advice, I'm so lost. then to top it off my 2 year old is showing symptoms as well both of them are just to much to handle at days. I feel so guilty for even talking about this but I just need to know what can I do, There are days when I don't even want to get out of bed I'm so mentally exhausted. I just hope that one day my son has that happy life that I want for him so much. He used to be such a happy child now hes angry all the time, its so sad.

I'm trying to exercise daily. I was doing fairly well until I sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago but now I'm getting back on the horse. Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps.
