Thank you. And wow. Just… wow. That’s awful, I’m so sorry that happened to you. The presumption of guilt isn’t just an ADHD thing, but it often happens a lot more to those with ADHD, so we learn to just deal with nobody trusting you because of your non-existent impulse control. It really sucks and hurts that nobody trusts you because “something may happen or you may do something,” as if it’s our fault every time something happens that involves us. And yeah, I get the wanting to ‘fit in’ part. And those friends of hers are not friends. They’re awful. I hate fake friends, I’ve had them. But thank you for sharing your experience with me. I find that sharing those can help you somewhat move on, and stop blaming yourself.
