my 4, almost 5 yr old daughter was just diagnosed last week with adhd and i have been a mess since. Not because of the diagnosis because i have always knew since she was 2 1/2-3 years old that she was way too hyper, impulsive ect. Everyone just kept telling me "she's just a normal kid she will grow out of it" and in the end as usual mommy knows best! Well, at this point I feel totally opposite! Ive cried for a week because i cant handle her! I cant get her to do anything because shes so distracted. I have tried for two days to get her to pick up her toys one by one and she cant even do that because she finds something that catches her attention along the way. Shes even been having accidents more frequently because she gets distracted by something on the way to the bathroom!. I just feel so alone and helpless because i cannot do anything with her! Everything turns into an argument because i get so frustrated even though i know she cant help it!!!! I feel like such a bad mother. As of now the doctors plan is to start behavioral therapy and when she starts kindergarten get the teachers to evaluate her (the doctor has already stated that shes almost positive she will be the same in school) then start meds the first few weeks of school but i am at my breaking point NOW!!!!! I dont know what to do, wait it out or talk to the doctor again. I need some guidance on this please!!!!!

I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
