hi everyone , I’m a single parent of 3 children and my eldest , my son , was diagnosed this summer with ASD and has battled adhd since he was 7 . He’s now 19 and we’re both struggling tremendously with this all. My eldest daughter has adhd , very low grades after two years in secondary school
plus I have a 6 year old daughter who’s now showing struggles in maths and English . My world couldn’t be more harder. I have chronic depression , anxious avoidant disorder myself aswell and can’t work until I’ve had sufficient appropriate therapy , which I’m having problems with.  I feel so isolated in all of this.
