I fired my Therapist after I realized she not only didn’t KNOW what the heck was wrong with me, but would tell me to do the very things I told her that didn’t work for me.

“Write the tasks I’m avoiding down on paper and break them down into their smallest steps!?! I don’t WANT to do THAT! NOW WHAT!?!

“Uh….duuuuuuh…”

Great. Thanks for nothing.

Thank god I found out that I had ADHD from a doctor. That saved me, really. I thought there was something dreadfully wrong with me. Of course, back then there wasn’t much to do but hit the pill bottle, but I found some old writings on developing mental concentration and started training with that. It was strange, and painful at first, because I was REALLY bad off, but I overcame the discomfort and now things are changed.
