Deucedog,

I’m so sorry. It’s an incredibly crappy feeling walking away from a discussion that has turned round on you like that. I think it’s clear your mother has a perspective that won’t allow for any information to be introduced that jeopardizes what she regards as her successes. Your having ADD probably helps her feel she’s off the hook where your difficulties (and her lack of moral support) are concerned.

Look, you tried. Please don’t beat yourself up over this. So many of us have been there, and it’s like being momentarily knocked right back down again after all the progress one has made and all the new hope one has found. Personally, I want to congratulate you for making it to where you are despite having undiagnosed ADD for all that time AND an unsympathetic mom. Your wife sounds more like the kind of person you deserve to have in your corner.
