ADD & moving on from relationships
My ex ended our relationship about two months ago, reasons being that I’m too emotional, not trusting, not confident, blow things out of proportion, over think things too much, change my mind too often… List goes on, but everything I can pretty much contribute to my ADD. Well, as much as I want him back, it doesn’t seem like that’s going to happen. So I’ve been doing everything I can to try and get over him and move on from the relationship.
I’m still able to get up every day, go to work, go to school, and get what I need to done.
But my mind is driving me crazy. Naturally, I can’t help but constantly over think the situation. I feel like I’m hyper focusing on the breakup and our relationship and it’s distracting me from being fully engaged and happy in life. I’ve been getting better during the daytime, but at night, maybe because my medicine has worn off, I’m a complete mess.
Communication has been cut off, I have learned to finally restrain myself from looking at his social media or trying to talk to him.
But I feel like the overanalyzing is never going to go away. I can’t help but beat myself up over the thought that if I had managed my impulses better we might still be together.
Someone please help me feel like I’m not alone.
