Hi All,

Just joined the site today and I’m soooo happy just to be able to communicate with so many others that understand the struggle. I’ve been going through a really rough time lately. In particular struggling with feelings of isolation, not being good enough.. you know the self abusive shopping list in my head. Or as I like to see it as the nagging angry monkey from family guy… I find visualizing the nasty voice as something commical and that helps to shut it down.

The greatest thing I struggle with is feelings of inadequacy, like I’m never doing well enough, or doing enough in general.. I find when I get really overwhelmed with these feelings I become paralysed and just end up doing nothing, until of course it MUST BE DONE NOW…lol

I know there has to be a better way of living, but it’s just hard to know where to start, so I’ve decided to start here by joining the conversation with all of you. So thank you all for being there and understanding what it’s like and I hope together that we can harness our ADHD for the better!!!

Wishing you all the best!
