AD(H)D Families Overwhelmed With Emotional Distresses (part one)

My mother recently visited from far away, and i had a chance to ask my mother why she did not seem interested in learning more about the origins of AD(H)D and the emotional distresses that I experienced living with AD(H)D.

And what I learned was that she had so many types of social emotional distresses in her own life, and that she was already overwhelmed with social emotional distresses and sadly she simply did not have the capacity to deal with any more emotional distresses.

Are there any other AD(H)D families that are simply overwhelmed with life's social emotional distresses to properly address origin and treatment of AD(H)D?
