I have learned recently that not only do I have ADHD but with the ADHD I have trouble regulating my emotions! Ha! Who knew right? Well, I don't have the medication to treat myself or money go get fully evaluated to determine what type of ADHD I have. Ha, ha! Bet you didn't know there was more than one type of ADHD, huh?!
DUN DUN DUN! But also with ADHD, yes, just wait, it gets better. I also experience/have Rejection Sensitive Dysphoria.
Now, does this excuse any of my behavior or anything that I do.
Not a chance in hell.
But, I am working on me and things like getting treatment and the medication I need for my chronic condition. What this does do, is help me better understand - well me, and helps me in moving forward. Some of you have known me since I got here, some of you before, well more like one of you, and well three years is a long time.
Anyway, thanks for reading!
Below I am linking a few resources for you guys to check out!
