Here is what I am and have gone through in the life of hyperactivity. This is what I was diagnosed as when I was a 4 year old back in the 60’s.
There is a thread of starts and stops through my life. Very few things last for years. It has happened in relationships, work, school and other aspects. Two things that did last were a relationship with a Canadian woman for 15 years. The other thing was being in the US Air Force Reserve in which I retired after 20 years. Otherwise there have been a lot of short term things with no common thread to bind them. Makes me wonder whether I will start and finish things to completion. It becomes frustrating.
Over thirty years I have tried to get my bachelors degree. Still am planning on get it done. For years I had to raise my child and convinced myself that I didn’t think I would get it. Lack of confidence perhaps? Still it is one of the many things I have kept from myself. No vision or the ability to see this to completion.
I have to make this ADHD thing work for me. Still not sure if I can do what I need to do.
