My son Ethan is 4 years old and with Asperger/Autism/ADHD? I say that b/c it looks more like the Aspergers but possible ADHD as well. He is on Concerta 18mg every morning. I just want to vent at the moment b/c everyday with him is like a new day..he does not understand anything that is told to him. He asks me the same questions all day everyday and I give him the same answers and its like he does not understand or comprehend at all what I am telling him.. even if its as simple as NO. I am not perfect. Im far from it, but I am trying so hard and I get so frustrated b/c he does not listen. I know its part of the disability but i do not know how to help him or reach him to get him to understand. No matter how many times I explain something.. No matter how many times I give him the same answer he keeps on asking and not understanding. I have lost my temper at times and I feel horrible for that but I am human and a mother that feels like she is failing or has failed. I love my son with every breath I breath but some days I just want to cry. He gets so upset with me if he does not get what he wants and the way he talks to me is unacceptable, I do not know how to get thru to him.. Help me..

Ive been through a lot since I last logged in. Firstly and worst of all, my sister, my best friend, died 2 days after my 28th birthday on 12-28-17. I was unfortunate enough to be the one who found her. Drug overdose....
