Kids with ADHD!!

Children ...or tazmanian devils????
End of the rope!
Bouncing off the walls is an expression that many moms know and love to use!!! ...they joke and play with it! I don't!
Bouncing off the walls is a reality in my lil nut house! My two boys have ADHD, they can take a clean house and turn it into a waste land in under 20 minutes. Pictures flying off of walls, blankets and pillows on the floor, peeing in corners, riding on the door handles, pounding the door back and forth, throwing toys against walls and tearing out all of the contents of closets and drawers. This is no joke...bouncing off walls is my reality!
I want to run away!
I have tried to discipline them. I take away TV, toys, games, everything that I think will make them behave! I give time outs...I hold them during the time out! that is worse than anything...they never never sit or stand still. They are Never Never quiet! never! It is constant humming or babbling! ....have you ever heard of Chinese Water Torture? ..water drips on your forehead for hours..until it drives you insane! Yep...that is what living with constant noise is like!
My oldest also has Aspergers! He is defiant, disrespectful and disobedient! Talking back, name calling, fighting, slamming doors, ....I cannot even go on....I am crying...and for what? It will not change!
Nothing helps! We have tried the diets, the drugs, the vitamins! ...nothing helps!
No one will watch them for us. We are all alone! I have no help or support. I cannot get away from them for even a few minutes unless my Husband watches them and he is stressed out too.
I watched a friends child for an afternoon. I have never been so freakin relaxed in all my life. The child was a dream! The lil girl actually told me that my boys were 'tooo busy'. LOL ..out of the mouths of babes!
We want to be good ..no great parents...but don't know what to do! Other people blame us! That makes me even more frustrated! How dare others judge or blame us! Maybe they should take them for a couple of days and get an education! ...education by fire!
A doctor actually said that we dont' handle them properly...that we should let them rage! He said to let my 3 year old pound his head on the floor. I am still shaking my head about that one! If we let them just rage ...they would destroy our home and probably kill themselves!
Did I mention the constant fighting. They wrestle and argue...alll day long! Fighting over toys, food, tv..whatever! It makes my eyes cross!
I hate the doctors! I told the one, who said it was my fault for not using better discipline, I told him to take my son home and see for himself. He actually responded that my son would not make it at his house. WTH? What would he do that I haven't tried. He acted like he would strangle him.
And ...how much was that office visit! Some doctors shouldn't even practice on dolls! He was a moron!
Blame the parents! Bunch of horse shit! We are doing everything humanly possible! They only blame us, because they don't have any answers!
I am soooooo tired! I dont' know what to do.
I love them soooo much. They are hurting too! I know that they want to be good, but they don't know how...or can't.
We have special moments of tenderness with them and it is soooo great...but so infrequent. Why? Why has this happened? My babies are trapped too.
They are trapped in ADHD / Asperger Hell too!
Are we all doomed to a home that looks like a nuclear explosion took place and sounds like one too!?
Where is that silver lining?
I wish there were an answer to helping my children! I wish...how I wish!
