Yes I am ADHD, I am also a recovering alcoholic, and a recovering sex addict. I have been in recovery since November 14th, 2002.
I am in process of writing a book about my sex addiction. Childhood trauma, addiction, recovery.
My hope is, in my willingness to be honest and transparent, I will make it safe for others to do the same. Healing hearts across the planet, one story at a time.
I'm learning boundaries, wholesome sexuality, and have a healing heart. I love recovery.... oh look a squirrel!
I am an ADHD adult. I was diognosed in the late 1980s after my 5 year old son was put on medication for ADHD I saw that he wasn't the only one with issues. Finding an MD to test me for something I was 'supposed' to g.row out of was quite difficult! But with tenacity & blatant pushiness, I finally pioneered my way into treatment. Today I am a very happy & content freelance writer and singer. Your comments are very important to me, I have a deficiency in attention after all... SO PAY ATTENTION TO ME!!! We ADHD/ADD folks need as many strokes as we can get. After getting beaten up by the world for years, our view of ourselves can become a bit askew. So if you have ADHD or ADD let me say, YOU ROCK!!! Way to go, you found us and you never have to feel "less than" again! If your parenting an ADHD/ADD kid let me say, I'm SO SORRY... lol (tounge in cheek), YOU hit the jackpot! You have a child that will teach you the meaning of being truly alive! I was born and raised in northern California and I LOVE it here. Raising 3 wonderful sons was the greatest adventure of my life! 2 ADD and one severely ADHD (like his momma) gave me stamina, patience, and a sense of humor. Anyone who is raising a kid like this, or who lives with ADHD themselves may appreciate these poems and stories. Feel free to share them with friends and family and link to my page, we need all the help and support we can get! It take a community to raise an ADHD child, get involved, not overwhelmed.
