Could Homeschooling be as stressful as regular school for my ADHD child?

I am really thinking about doing it. I can't handle another failing progress report giving me one month left to beg teachers to work with my daughter before the final report card grades come out! Does anyone know what I'm going through here? I have a 13 year old who is smart and beautiful, funny and artsy, yet she cannot keep up in class. She has been diagnosed with ADHD and I just think I'm gonna try homeschooling her once and for all. I figure at least I would know where she is and what assignments are due ect because I would be there with her. Maybe I would feel that I have a little more control over the situation to actually do something instead of feeling helpless as she struggles in school. I stay awake feeling guilty. I cry. I counsel, advise, help with homework, everything short of paying off her teachers I have done. I am working five days a week as a preschool teacher but I am willing to quit to give her my time. I am a full time college student myself also so I would have to quit the day job to do both her school and mine. Anybody been her before?
