I’m 42 years old female, a mother of 2. Last year I was diagnosed with adult ADHD. I burned-out at my new work place and also a mess at home. Long story short, a good friend that studied Psychology that had known me for many years, informed me that all my symptoms sounds like ADHD. I read and educated my self about ADHD, I informed my husband and he told me that all the symptoms are like my personalities: clumsy, forgetful, impulsive, get bored easily, impatience and a master procrastinator. Last year we’re almost on the brink of separation because things really went down hill, I couldn’t perform at work, and the worst part was that I cannot understand my children (now I understand then as they also have mild adhd). I feel glad and sad at the same time. Glad now because I know what is the problem and try to get around my adhd. Sad because I feel like I wasted all my life feeling lost, with shame and guilt.
Now I feel that I can be a better mother, wife and person by embracing my ADHD
