Hi JeckB87!

Juggling motherhood is tough on it’s own but exponentially tougher when mom also has ADHD. It sounds like you are looking for strategies to make your days flow a little better and reduce stress. has a great section on their website called, “The Organized Life,” I think you will find many useful tips within those articles.

Yes, especially in the evenings when meds have worn off. But, I try to organize the home (when meds are in effect) so that things aren’t quite as hectic in the evenings. Rearranging your world around your ADHD…... It was really difficult for me, but I’m making progress. I hope it gets better.

Always feel like I’m treading water with the mundane/basic family stuff. Can’t imagine being that overachieving scrapbooking mom lol I guess now since I’ve been diagnosed (not on meds), I’ve forgiven myself for my messy, forgetful, distracted self. I have 3 kids, moved across the country 3 times, work as an rn part time, my life is nuts! Make lists and forgive yourself!! It’ll be ok!
