Asperpers and ADHD - How do some of you cope?

I have a 6 year old son who has been diagnosed with ADHD as well as Aspergers Syndrome. His ADHD levels are amazing, it is like the energizer bunny on steroids. Combine that with the nuances that come from the Aspergers, well, I should have bought stock in Advil. I know that having a structured day is important, as well as patience and compromises, but I have to admit this is hard in our household. I also have a 3 year old, a 15 year old who has NLD (non-verbal learning disorder) and I have ADD. I know what you are thinking....WOW! Those are some genetics:) The problem is, some days I just feel so overwhelmed and stressed and I don't know what to do. Any suggestions?

It sounds like some days can be pretty daunting Brandee. Have you joined CHADD or any other organizations that may offer support goups? It's important to make time for you ( I know, easier said than done) . SOunds like you could use some help at home.
Talk to your 6 yr olds social worker at school, to see if there may be some assistance you may qualify for to help at home with your child. Do some investigating by blogging on CHADD and talk to others in your position. I have found that to be incredibly helpful.
Good luck and keep us posted.
