ADHD in Women
am I just needy?
I would love to share some of the articles from this website with my family. Many of them are so shockingly true it hurts. I know I have internalized all my life. I have hid my real self from others and eventually lost myself completely. I didn’t know who I was or what I wanted. I was afraid all the time. I felt like I had no foundation to stand and I was falling deeper into this painful hole each moment of my life. It was unbearable. That was my life from 0-58. June 2014 changed everything.
I have had a total transformation from the inside out. So very different to live in my bones now as opposed to before. But know one has asked for information on ADD. I don’t get it. I really have hid myself and played at real life so they don’t see the change? They had no idea how painful it was inside or how difficult it was sometimes pretending to function. Other times making excuses so they wouldn’t see the weakness. This has been life changing for me. My children grew up with their pretend mother so perhaps they just don’t see the change. I feel like I have radically changed, like from a frog into a princess change. I think I want acknowledgement and to show some interest by reading a few paragraphs about ADD.
I am not really STUCK on this situation like I would have a few months ago, but AM I TOO NEEDY?
