What do you get when you take one ADHDer…just add grad school…just add several large life changes in a short period of time…just add family drama…just add major mystery illness that has completely incapacitated me for all practical purposes, for the past month (with no end in sight…yes I was pushing through that while trying to graduate too, which was awesome)…
Do we get a disaster? An ADHDer in crisis?
HELL NO BITCHES!
I’m just doing what I reasonably can to get back on track. I mean I did graduate…I went to the ceremony and everything, trying my best not to pass out while standing there. So that’s one big ass serving of misery-inducing crap right there that has been flushed successfully (I managed to graduate with an almost 3.7…woohooo!).
I can’t really go in the personal drama aspect but will say this: if you are an ADHDer who does NOT have a talk-therapist, you’re nuts. Just plain irresponsible (or just plain uninsured, in which case ignore my nuts comment). If I had not had a therapist during all of the whackadoodle-doo that I’ve been juggling (or semi-comatose or hospitalized for) I MIGHT be an ADHD disaster right now.
Life changes, illnesses and craziness in our midst can easily throw off even the best intentioned ADHDer, especially when they literally happen ALL AT ONCE….having an awesome therapist and approaching life with a positive attitude can really ease the burden though.
Do it. Do. It. Now.
