ADHD in Women
A bit old to change
I’m in my late 50s and have a son with ADD and asperger traits. I recently realised that he’s not the only one- I have very similar problems but very different ways of dealing with them. Somehow I thought I was really good at concentrating as I pick up everything that is going on around me. I can rarely focus on one thing, which effects my career and the expectations of everyone around me. My home is very untidy and disorganised, I’ve recently got a BIG promotion after underachieving, in spite of being very well qualified and experienced, most of my life. Now I’m scared. I’m motivated now and keeping up with the work, but I’m petrified they will find me out and I will fail. I’ve somehow got through so far with working long hours and being very driven. As long as I feel motivated this is fine, but I tend to burn out every few years. HELP!
