My husband was diagnosed as a child with ADD but has not been treated in years, he has been really depressed lately and I don't seem to know where to go for help. Is depression linked to ADD? I know very little about ADD. I also don't know what to do to get him help with the ADD. He is not working and we don't have very much money and I know that treatment can be very expensive, what do we do? It is wearing on me. I am trying very hard to hold my family together but am scared. He is now a father of an infant and does want help but we don't know where to start when we have no money or insurance. I too could use some help understanding why he does the things he does. Like get fired when our baby was only 10 days old, buys things that we can't afford and is either mad or depressed most of the time. I am tired. I know that this probably is not the kind of message I should be posting and I am sorry for that. I just need to know if someone can point us in the right direction.
thanks for you time
