Well, my family sat me down last night to discuss this ADD thing, and while they thought it was a good thing to check out, it seemed, at the same time, to be saying that I just have to decide what I want, what it is that I want to go after. Broke into tears because I couldn’t explain to them that that was part of ADD and just felt criticized and a total failure in life. And I know that therapy and coaching will help with that but it’s still really hard to bear.

Grew up in a dysfunctional alcoholic family and learned to totally suppress anger. So now they think that I don’t “fit” the profile.

After feeling so good about ADD and loving it, now I just feel let down and that I just should “buck up”.

And maybe it would be better for my family if I just moved to the other side of the country so they wouldn’t have to worry about me all the time.
