I believe that one-on-one peer support is hugely beneficial. I am a mature adult with ADHD symptoms and believe that I have a firm understanding of anxiety, marriage issues, and frustrations with ADHD related issues. I am also currently in a masters in psychology program and believe that knowledge is power so would be happy to impart any evidence-based findings or conjectures that may, or may not, be of benefit to your specific challenges.
If you would like to engage in peer telephone support, I would be happy to be your ADHD peer partner. Having travelled much of the territory you seem to be travelling, I hope that I may be of some support to you, albeit via phone conversations, possibly using What’s app to avoid LD phone charges, or facetime or other alt method. At the very least I would be happy to chat with you about my experiences or hear out our situation and offer a third party perspective from someone who has travelled some of the terrain you task yourself with.
Thank you kindly,

I was in exactly the same situation at work. It was horrible…to be completely honest my coworkers were shallow and downright mean people. I agree with others that it’s futile to try to fit in with people you don’t even like….best to just be yourself as much as you can be….thing is, if you turtle..then you’re not being yourself either….don’t let them do that to you…I wish you didn’t have to bear that weight…it totally sucks!!! and I completely empathize with you…and wish you much…well, if it’s that nauseating to be around them and you inadveertently throw up…I’m just saying…better to target someone’s sitting next to you than the carpet which may be permanently stained….ok..maybe that was too sassy…either way, I wish you all the tolerance the universe can send your way!
