Hi there. I don't always check this notice board. But here I am and I decided to have a look at your message. I have diagnosed ADHD and I also class myself as multi-creative (when I make the time, in between getting side-tracked by other things). Like yourself, I am extremely disorganised, I play guitar, piano, drums, some wind instruments and I sing when I find the confidence. I have literally hundreds of "would-be lyrics to songs" all over the house in various places and would love to find the time to do something with it all (in between looking after 3 children (2 have ADHD). I am a talented Horse rider and I am told that I am artistic but I have only managed to complete 1 mixed media painting.
Yes I wish I could do basic stuff like every one else such as budget the housekeeping properly, I also wish I could have kept my marriage together. I have now been separated for over a year but I am happy as I was in an abusive relationship and my ex-husband also did not believe I possessed any of the above talents and continually put me down to the point where I actually allowed myself to be brain-washed by him and I didn't pursue my talents and dreams for nearly 10 years. Yes I agree, life is frustrating. Please E-mail me if you would like to communicate further about ADHD or any of the above. Thanks for your time..........Debbie.
