ADHD in Women
Focused on physical pain.
Life has taken a toll on me. I am in lots of pain some days. Back issues, stomach issues and over all body pain are the head-liners of my misery.
I believe in the “pain body” as Ekhart Tolle talks about in his books. I think pain can be trapped emotional energy looking for release. Not all pain of course, but some.
Today is a tough one. And I am mad at myself for feeling this crappy, unable to communicate over a first grade level and refuse to be a Debbie Downer to anyone, God Forbid!
Four weeks ago I was in bed almost all day , everyday. I dragged myself to the doctors and began treatment for ADHD.. Who would’ve guess at 58 ?
So I have this whole new life to lead. And I want my vitality back and my pain to go away and I want it yesterday.
In my magical world I keep searching for THE formula to my health and happiness like a mouse on a wheel. Its really difficult for me to slow down and really go through the ( a to b to c to d ).. steps to heal.
I know I need to build a support system but it seems between now and a support system is a long way off. I feel like I need some way to say out loud what I need to say, ( complain) still save Face, and not be a needy Nelly. I can’t bear my neediness but at this moment, that’s what’s real. I guess I just need to hear it’s going to be alright. !!!!
