Hi, my name is Dominique I have ADHD I was diagnose with cancer in 2006 and had chemo from 2007-to last month (March2010). I am a wreck right now. I am mad at my DH for no reason, my son keeps been suspend from school for all kind of reason, lots and lots of trouble to keep my house clean and keep the laundry wash so everything is just accumulating. I donít want to stay in my house cause of that so I go out and of course I have to spend money that I donít have. I am on medication and I think is the 4 kind that I tried and now I am very close of cracking and just leaving and never come back. I went to see the doctor and he keep saying that I have to let the chance of the medication to take effect and sometime it can take up to6-12 month to see a difference. I donít have time to go see a social worker to talk about my problem since I have 3 very active boys and work, school, sports, cleaning, ect.... I can call my family to help me cleaning my house because it is a mess and I donít want them to see that. What can I do or where can I turn

What medicine are you on? I've never heard of anything taking 6 - 12 months to start working!! But of course, I'm not a doctor, so idk, lol.

I'm really sorry you're going through this, it must be really tough. Is there any way you can get some help from your dh or family to babysit so you can have some alone time and do something just for YOU? It sounds like you need a break.

This board isn't really active, but I check it every couple of days or so, if you need to vent or just someone to listen, you can alwyas pm me!!

hun ... I was tried on SEVERAL meds before doctors finally found the 'right cocktail' that worked for me and my meds still have to be adjusted every so often ... I felt like a lab rat really and it was way more than four

What med(s) have they tried you on? how did each affect you?

Let me know so that I can see what else I can find out for you or possibly tell you from my own experience what to ask the doctor to help you out with.

hang in there ... it's really tough but you can do it
