Isn’t depression about you feel depressed but don’t kknow why? Maybe we call it chronic depression.
I do understand how you feel. I am in my 30s but have been depressed since third grade or younger. I don’t know why I am depressed but it is what it is.. I just accept my feeling or watch how it flows.. Hope that you feel better today.
I have adhd and have lots of things that I went through and want to share. One thing I learn is that ssetting 15 minutes or some time never works to me. I rather count time how much I studied. I use toggl timer (app/online available) to record how much I have studied on a particular subject or material. I start the timer when I really start studying and turn off when my brain deviates. One session(?) Lasts 10-15 minutes on average. For example, I need net 40 hours to receive b on a subject (exam prep) then I just kept studying till I reach that hours. I let myself take a break as my brain wants to. I don’t reach those hours in one day rather a week or two weeks. It works for me well…. Cuz setting 5 minutes break drives my brain crazy. Tt
Hope that it helps. Welcome to ask more questions if you want my advice.September 5, 2018 at 2:54 pm in reply to: My 7 year old son with ADHD is violent and aggressive to me. I am desperate. #98304
Hi, I feel your frustration. I am not a parent, just aa 30 years old lady with adult adhd. I grew up with aadhd tho back then there was no such thing.
I was a quite but smart kid with anger inside. I was afraid that it would just come out without warnings. I always wished I could do martial arts cuz it let you run, scream, hit and let the anger out properly. My mom did not let me cuz I am a girl and martial arts was not for girls she thought.
I think you can bring him martial arts class and learn how to let things out and how to control the emotions. Hope that it helps.
