You cannot know how much I needed to read this in my season of life. 33, newly diagnosed, and wading through the hurricane. Thank you.
I was telling my friend earlier this evening how the thoughts in my head are like sentences scribbled on pieces of paper caught in a hurricane inside my head. At 49 years old, I still can’t solve story problems because I see so many potential connections between all of the pieces of information that I can’t figure out which ones are important and I often end up adding additional pieces of information or variables such as whether or not it might be raining. She said that that helped her to understand me better. I decided to Google it to see if anyone else felt the same way and found your article. My friend has decided she has ADHD and is taking Ridellan. Since then, I have wondered if I might also have it. However, just like you mentioned in the article, I have so many thoughts and ideas about everything that I doubt all of them. I think you may have helped me to confirm and except once and for all that I may be dealing with ADHD. You have also given me hope. I keep trying to find relationships where I unload all of my crazy thoughts on people and test them to see if they are the one who can handle me. So far, I haven’t found that person. It gives me hope to know that you have. I didn’t realize of course that that is what I am doing until tonight.
