I was diagnosed in Nov ’11 and I felt better that there is a reason for some of the difficulty I have
Currently I struggle with the feeling I somehow just don’t meet the mark and I am not as good as other people.
For me I always have high expectations for myself. I have literally willed myself to accomplish things.
In university I could sustain the effort to finish each semester and then graduate. In adult life it has been different
and there are a wide range of things that I have wanted to accomplish. The problem is sheer will and determination
is not enough and can’t be sustained. I have failed in relationships, jobs, etc. I realize i have been very affected by ADD and
it has touched all aspects of my life.
So right now I feel overwhelmed. In some ways I feel stuck in that …how do I move forward and try to manage things better?
Wgreen – what you said makes sense as far as expectations. I just don’t know how to motivate myself if i dont have any expectationsREPORT ABUSE
