Good progress, UM ! And you have absolutely nothing to be ashamed of --- you're a good and caring mom struggling under difficult circumstances, and you have moved ahead in taking her to see a specialist more clearly working towards recognizing and dealing properly with her problems. Depression, ADHD, etc., happens, even to kids with saintly moms. Conversely, you couldn't make your child develop these conditions if you tried deliberately.
Treatment for whatever conditions are now being recognized will help in ways that NO mom acting on her own could --- but be sure to ask the psychiatrist and whoever does the testing on her ( because they will know you and her far better than I could possibly know ) just how to handle her and especially how to deal with disciplinary problems. COnsistency is important in terms of rules and rewards / penalties, and not giving a child a discipline framework is unfair and unhelpful. I agree with Maria
