Hi my name is cara

Is there any1 out there that can' sleep because they feel like ur child controls ur household and is walking on egg shells just because of his temper and my other kids can' cope when he' violent and abusive to me. They are all petrified of him. However he is awaiting a diagnosis for autism and adhd and currently taking melatonin to help him sleep. Is there any1 in the same sort of situation that can give me any advice or just to chat. As his mum I don' sleep anymore constantly worried what he' going to do next also I haven' been well at all since he' getting worse and no1 seems to be ble to help me either understand him or even make our houehold a happy home again x
