Everything makes perfect sense!

I went to counseling @ a new place Monday. After the death of my father & another family member, my mother not being n good health & seasonal depression. I couldn't take anymore. And decided to get some help. I was telling my counselor what my symptoms are & how I feel inside. She was asking me questions & looking things up in a book. At the end of our session she told me I have tons of signs for ADHD all on the inattentive. She said with everything I listed I borderline moderate to severe. And that required treatment. I know there isn't anything funny about it. But I had to laugh. It just made perfect sense. I have been living my whole life feeling like a mess inside. Can't concentrate, can't remember things or conversations I have, had a really rough time in school, can't filter out background noises. So when I'm at church & people are talking behind me, I get nothing they say in church. I can't read a book unless it's totally quit. I'm extremely unorganized, I try & try @ things are a mess 2 days after I organize it. My counselor said it was to early to diagnose anything. But was something we would explore & look further into. Hope to learn some things here.

Re: Everything makes perfect sense!

I'm finding getting some morning exercise, like a 20min fast walk, and trying to view things as positive as possible, have been helping me a lot lately.
I was quite relieved myself to know there is a reason for why things are more challenging. If I look at it like it's a challenge then I can train myself to win everyday!? right? Like runners train with goals. We can make daily reasonable goals. Baby steps.
Of course some days are better than others.
I'm glad you are finding some answers. Take care.
