About Me

Found 18 results

  1. For some background information, my partner and I have been together for a year and two months. We are both 18 years old. They live around a 5 hour's drive away from me, but I cannot see them often at all. We are both very depressed, have ADHD, and have/likely have autism. We had an honest talk tonight over the phone about where we are headed. They've been extra stressed recently because of college, and haven't been able to express as much affection as they would like in addition to venting to me a Lot. I've been left feeling exhausted and having my emotional needs go unmet. This has been
  2. Hi all... Back here after a while. and please, be nice. I know what I did. Part of this post is to hopefully get advice, and part of it is to really get into my head and collect my thoughts. Been dating this awesome girl for 2 years. Put a lot of effort in it, as best as I could. A small part of this relationship she had to move across the state for work. We agreed on two things, one was I would try to move out to where she was at some point (goal was within a year) and second, I would tell her if I decided to see other people (I'm not clear if we were going to do open relationship
  3. Okay. Say there was this "Person" who was with another person, and the other person, being a person, had a person. But it was only because that person was already with that person. They never left each other. It was an all day thing just being people. So what is my cause for concern? I'm a really bad conversationalist. I need to get out more. You would think I'm on drugs but I said all of this completely sober. Maybe I should get on drugs? ADHD meds? (Yes I'm being a jack a**.. bad attempt at humor. Need another funny release before I work out the final MDA of my divorce. I don't
  4. My ex (as of yesterday) sent me the following as we were breaking up over text. He basically moved out while I was at work. In the 5 months we have lived together he has moved out 7-8 times. 2 at my request and the other times he moved out stating that he cannot take my nagging/criticism. I love him, he is loyal, faithful, and ambitious and the quintessential tall, dark and handsome, but I resent him. He has ADHD and he is SUPER messy and forgetful. At times I feel like I am more his mother than his girlfriend…cleaning up after him, telling him to pick up his stuff, etc. He says I crit
  5. Has anyone any experience in diagnosing a suspected ADHD child. My son is 13 this year and we suspect he could be having ADHD. we are taking him to see a family and child psychologist. what questions would I ask on this first of this appointment; how should I approach this problem and what can else can do about it.
  6. I'm looking for any previous or current litigation where a Plaintiff diagnosed with ADD/ADHD has filed a complaint of disability discrimination. Specifically, I'm interested in how the courts consider ADD/ADHD as a disability - where there has been recognition that the disorder can be an impairment to a major life function. I have filed such a discrimination complaint in the US District Court in Denver, Colorado. Any sharing of information would be appreciated. John W.
  7. Hi, I’ve been in a relationship with my partner for almost 2 years and desperately need advice. He has ADHD, is not medicated for it and no matter how many times I try to talk about it or work through the issues it is causing in our relationship, he just clams up and we never work through it. I feel lonely and shut out and don’t know what to do. I love this man so much but I don’t know how much longer I can keep going with this. Has anyone had experience in this and if so, what on earth can I do!?!? Please help!
  8. To set the scene I’m 38 years old. Up until my thirties I drifted around having lots of fun in different locations. Then when I turned 30 I suddenly had this incredible impulse to return to be near my family and have babies. For most of my thirties this became an obsession. I chose totally unsuitable men and went through boyfriends like a shark with a shoal of fish! Some of them were horrible. Then I gave up on men last year and decided to have a baby solo. That’s when I met my current partner. He’s young and fun. We became serious quite quickly. A year and a half later I’m living with him.
  9. I reconnected with a long ago love interest via the internet. We talked everyday for a few months and eventually she decided to move to my location. (We are a lesbian couple. Just don't want you to get confused by pronoun usage.) I remember having some trouble understanding her over the phone but thought it was because of a bad connection or something. I even bought a new phone because the connection bothered me. So, now that we are a couple I realize it wasn't a bad connection. She just cannot communicate very well. She has ADHD and talks a mile a minute, jumping from one topic to ano
  10. Today, I may have learned that I have ADHD. I had never truly researched ADHD before. I had always just attributed the disorder to kids who can't stay focused or sit still in class. I wasn't even convinced it was real...until now. Just happened across an article. I never knew that ADHD came with the symptoms of hyperfocus, inability to get started on anything that doesn't interest me, jumping from hobby to hobby, and need for over-stimulation (high action video games, high risk activities, etc.) I'll literally fall asleep in a meeting, no matter how well rested I am upon entering. I get
  11. Me and my younger sister were really close when we were younger. We're still pretty close. Actually, I think out of everyone else, she feels closest to me. But she has ODD. Anxiety, depression, and ADHD all run in my family, and I got them all. Yay. Since she was young, she's always had anger issues. When I was about six, they turned to me. Then to my even younger sister. Me, my mom, and my youngest sibling are all really struggling to deal with her. I love her, but that's really what makes it hurt so much. I don't remember much about how it happened, its just a blur. But I do remember feelin
  12. Hi all, I am new here and I did a quick search for relationship forums and found this one. Here it goes if my words sound rushed that's because I am not in a good place right now. My fiance and I over and I do not know how to get over here. We were a couple for almost 5 years, we shared a home, traveled, we had some fantastic times and I thought it would never end. A little about me, I have ADHD with RSD. My ex has bipolar, ptsd. During the last two years, I have become violent when I was sleeping. I was sleep walking also and not knowing that I was. I will admit it took me too long to get
  13. I’d like to know if there will be any demand for early childhood special education teachers. I’m looking into it. I’d also like to know if there will be any job prospects relating to helping students who have adhd and dyslexia . Etc . I’m trying to seek more fulfilling things to do with my life .
  14. So... I broke up with my ex boyfriend late last year. And started talking to someone new basically immediately I have ASD (autism spectrum disorder) and recently diagnosed ADHD Now I have been seeing this new person for about 6 weeks. He told me on the second date he wants to pursue a serious relationship with me...Things have gone smoothly since then. We have disclosed a lot of personal information, and he knows I have ADHD. As yet I haven't felt comfortable formally disclosing my ASD diagnosis I have been diagnosed by two different specialists but I'm so high functioning that it's
  15. Everything around me doesn't feel real. It's as if all of it is happening in my mind. I am imagining everything and am not living in present. I am not able to differentiate between reality and imagination. Is there a chance that i have ADHD or fantasy prone personality? If i get to know about it a bit, I'll see a doctor. But before i want to know if these are symptoms of ADHD or any other disorder?? I have read that ADHD mostly happens to those who fantasize things in their childhood. And same is the case with me. I used to fantasize a lot because i was addicted to fictional novels. If you ha
  16. I have noticed when I get mad at my fiance now i lash out in rage and always tend to scratch him not knowing how else to show how angry and misunderstood I feel. I used to be nothing like this and im starting to scare myself and feel sooo bad afterward but then i end up doing it again come a fight a few weeks later. He has been somewhat physically violent with me due to his past and how his brain works with having double adhd and bipolar but realizes his faults, and tries to curb it as much as possible. But i have developed these aggressive traits and i need to stop them. Help!!!!!!
  17. Hi guys, I'm am so frustrated with myself! I am now convinced that as an adult, I have developed ADHD or just ADD. I find it difficult focusing and concentrating on one subject at a time, for anthing longer than a few paragraphs at a time; it's gotten to the point where unless something captures my attention very early on, I become bored with it and move on, stop reading. Books, articles, even the longer posts on relationship advice forums! Lol I simply do not have the patience to make it through, what the hell is wrong with me? The problem now is that I am studying for the LSA
  18. I (33F) broke up with my ADHD boyfriend (35M) a couple months ago, and am having trouble dealing with the resentment, bitterness, and guilt post-breakup. We dated for total of 6 months but have been living together (during COVID) for 4-5 months which caused many of our problems. I would describe our relationship as "death by a thousand cuts." Each issue forgivable but everything together led to a lot of negative feelings. Some of our issues - I felt very uncared for in our relationship. He informed me early on that he never dated a girl that he had to pursue which I thought was odd. Sin
