Although I’m not diagnosed with ADHD my son has it and I see identical patterns repeating themselves, patterns and issues from my childhood that he is exhibiting. I can relate to all of the previous blogs. Have always felt overly sensitive, always avoided and continue to avoid confrontation, and have lost friends along the way because I really don’t think I ever knew HOW to be a friend it maintain friendships. Many prior friends ended up stabbing me in the back and I’ve come to accept this as normal from people, I almost expect it, so I never really open up completely bc in the end I know they won’t be around. It’s hard realizing this as an adult but it is what it is. Now that I’m more conscious of these things, I will try to look at things differently.
