I have no formal diagnosis…to many other things to do…but I just wanted to share a poem about the way I feel. I hope it rings true with some of you… Thank you for letting me share!
Stop biting your nails
he slaps my hand
He doesn’t understand
I can’t process what he’s saying
Unless I’m gnawing at my skin
Stop interrupting, you’re just so rude
but it comes out of my mouth
before I think it through
and if I don’t say it now
It’s lost forever
Could you finish your sentence for once
I’d love to
but a thought flew by
and it caught my eye
and I need you to help me get back
to the train of thought I was riding on
Please don’t poke your head in my car!!!
It’s a failure on wheels,
It’s a mobile, public display
of the things I can’t get round to
and the mess in my brain
Why can’t we have more?
Because I forgot to pay the bills
And now I’m paying charges
So there’s no money left for thrills
I have failed you again, kids
But you’re a doctor and you got straight A’s
so I feel like a fraud
I squeezed 7 years of college
into a dozen night befores
Not a doctor, ssshhhh.
Please accept my apologies for my late reply
I lost a day to dazing
and a month to wondering why
and promising tomorrow
knowing I’ll hide from that too
Please turn the music down, I can’t taste my food
There are days I wish I was deaf
To be able to think
without the singing of the birds
derailing my train

That’s beautiful and it breaks my heart at the same time. I wonder if that’s what my kid feels like.
