Reply To: Guilt, Isolation and Embarrassment


Omg, I think we are the same person. I feel guilty and rotten much of the time, and it sucks. I love my son, but this journey is soooo hard. I’ve always felt like we’ve never quite bonded like I have with my other child, and I know it’s because of ADHD. My son was difficult from day 1, like he he wasn’t comfortable in his own skin, so going places and doing things is hard. Over time it has become isolating. I feel bad about what he’s missing out on. Hopefully he will figure it out eventually, but it can be very lonely.
