I can relate to this and it hurts.
I’m in high school and it is hard for me because I hate judgment. Like any kind, even if it can help me. I feel like I’ve messed up.
recently I had two friends I really cared about and they started dating. While they were dating, one started to act like the other (she was generally nice) but she would say jokes like “Shut up” and stuff, but not in a joking way and it really hurt. So eventually the other one broke up with her saying “I need space” (Which we gave her but anyways) and she was doing all these things that made me mad, upset and I resorted to self-harm for a bit and it sucks, a lot. But eventually, she said that she felt “unloved and unsupported” even though all of us have bent over backward for her. This sent me over the edge. I blew up at her, I said somethings I regret, but I told her what she needed to hear.
Whenever I feel like I’m going to blow up, I just put in my other earbud (I generally listen to music constantly because it helps me focus and I have better conversations when I do) and write out my emotions.
I wish I knew more but I’m still struggling
I also have ADHD and the emotions suck. Recently emotions have become really bad. I have started to write my emotions. I just listen to music, sit down, and write out almost everything. I only share some of it with my friends I trust the most and I feel it has helped.
I am still struggling with in-the-moment-train-wreck-of-emotions but if I figure out something, I’ll let you know.
I can relate to this a lot, as I have ADHD too. Generally, I tend to stuff my emotions because I felt bad acting them out or talking about them, but recently they have become too much and I have blown up at people and I hate it. Usually, I don’t cry, even when I want/need to, but it has become too much.
To try and help with this I have a word document of emotions. I just sit down, listen to music and write. I just write almost everything and I share a few things with a few friends I trust completely and it helps.
I’m just scared that I’m going to become like someone who has emotionally abused me and I don’t want to do that to anyone.

I have ADHD and I tried marijuana (before I did extensive research on the effect of THC on ADHD medicine and ADH, as well as anxiety) and I got a slight headache, but I actually got really focused (even though I didn’t smoke as much as my friends) but I would say try CBD alone because that has the medical effects, though I haven’t tried it myself.
Hope this helps.

Thank you so much Penny!
I’m hoping to build up the courage to tell my parents and family about this side of ADHD because it isn’t well known but affects me the most.

Thank you so much.
It means a lot to see someone who has struggled with almost the same exact things (not that I’m glad you and other people are struggling)
After looking into ADHD a lot, I’m thinking of going to Asheville NC for Psychology because 1) it is super gay (as my friend has testified) and 2) It has a great psychology program and I want to help people get comfortable with them, especially people with ADHD and the emotions with it.
And I’m happy for you! I’m glad you have someone and I hope you have been surrounded with supportive people, but what a blessing they are.
