My mom blames herself...
I am 27 and I was diagnosed with ADHD a few months ago. My mom tends to blame herself for not getting me help when I was a child. She didn’t believe I had ADHD when I was growing up, she just thought I was a enthusiastic, energetic, and curious child who loved to be around people. I am successful in my life so far-went to college, then grad school, got my master’s degree, and I have a full-time job. I am having some trouble trying to explain to her that it isn’t her fault. Has anyone experienced this with their parents and are willing to share what they did/said to them??
