Find a Conversation

I'm new to the board and am basically looking to find others like us to talk to and to learn from.
I am mom to three kids. My oldest has ADD with some Bipolar tendencies and my middle child has tentatively been diagnosed as ADHD with some Bipolar tendencies. I say tentatively since his behavior(s) are all over the place on the ADHD/Bipolar spectrum, much to the curiosity and perplexity of his doctors. My third child does not demonstrate any of their behaviors (thankfully), although he has been given his own set of challenges (speech, motor skill and sensory integration delays).
Anyway, both my husband and I are the same as my oldest (ADD with Bipolar tendencies), so we have our own challenges to deal with, along with trying to do the best we can for our children. It can be very stressful at times, but also incredibly wonderful at others.
So I'm here to learn and also to listen or help in anyway I can.
