As I opened the refrigerator and found my keys that have been missing for the last 3 hours, I thought... it's time to talk to someone. I think I am losing my mind.
Having lived with ADHD for 47 years, I am used to being confused, feeling overwhelmed, forgetting where I left things, struggling to keep up with the daily schedule. But lately, it seems to be getting worse. I still have all of these ADHD symptoms but they seem to be magnified. I am more confused than ever. I am so overwhelmed, I just feel like giving up and shutting down.
That's not like me. I always feel overwhelmed but I always persevere. I have been proud of the coping skills I have developed and the fact that even when things are difficult, I keep on going. I fight the good fight.
But today as I pull my cold keys from the fridge ... I just want to hide from it all. This is when I know it is time to talk to...
