Reply To: I wish I could be fixed.


I am a parent of a daughter with ADHD and I just want to say that my heart goes out to you. I’m so sorry you are not getting the support you need from your dad, but I’m glad you’ve reached out here for support. Continue to do that, and try to find more support in the “real” world as well (not just virtual). One thing that has helped both my daughter and myself feel like her ADHD is not a “curse” is a podcast called Faster Than Normal by Peter Shankman. Check out Most episodes are interviews with successful people (and by that I mean REALLY successful) who have ADHD. Other episodes provide tips/advice/new research. There’s also a blog and a book. Maybe this would help give you hope. Wishing you the best.
