ADHD in Women
Hypersensitive and Recovering Perfectionist
Hi - I have read and listened to as much as quite humanly possible on these topics and how having ADHD makes it more pronounced. That all being said, I really just want to get out of this funk - I am good for a few months and maybe it is a season change thing but I am miserable. I have a great life and people who love and support me - yet, I feel like doing nothing - nothing seems to make me feel good enough even though I know I should not be so hard on myself.
I recently started a business on my own and have had initial success - however, when I don’t get things just right, or worst yet I get a critique, I am back to being the emotional 22 year old who use to get the feedback at work to not take things personal - a life time of trying to be perfect, achieve and get recognition haunts me and I am working on it every day ¦
I guess I am just looking for moral support from the community today - just feeling like I am standing on quicksand today ¦
