Nice to be here with my kind
Hello. I am so glad to be here. I never heard of anyone else having this problem. What a relief! I have struggled with this for YEARS. Since finding this site tonight, I have done a lot of reading online. All instead of getting ready for a really important day today. I do work well under pressure though, which is how this day will begin. So what should I do from here? I have read a lot of posts tonight and really identify with just about all of it. I was searching earlier for mental health symptoms to try to figure out exactly what the hell is wrong with me. I am so frustrated! I would say on the scale of mild to severe, I am pretty severe. I try to joke about it and convince myself that I am different from most others, and that can be a good thing. Yeah, it's not funny anymore, and as I went to the pharmacy today for my ADD meds, I was convinced that I have something way more severe than ADD. Does everyone feel that way? Or maybe I do have some kind of other thing going on too. I always feel like I didn't quite grow up, that I am so irresponsible and actually wish I had a personal coach or something to supervise me. It is in ALL areas. Work, housework, cooking, laundry, shopping. It is as if I have no regard whatsoever sometimes for the things I need to do. So what do I do first? Once I get the hang of this, I promise to be a helpful member of this group. What a promising thing I hope this will be.
Have a good day, friends and Happy Thanksgiving.
