I have been doing a lot of self evaluating lately resulting from another huge mistake made by me. Mistakes are common in the life of an ADDer, but the risky behaviors I display are not. Oh, don’t get me wrong, my diagnosis of ADHD is accurate, bit I truly believe there is something more.
Due to my traumatic childhood and my inability to communicate my feelings accurately, I think I may be struggling with BPD. I will be seeking a professional dx next week.
Good day readers, it’s going to be a terrific Tuesday. I am planning a day all to myself, for I am a deer widow. My husband will be leaving to go hunting for the day, the kids will be in school, oh whatever shall I do in my quiet house?. I really want to do some furniture rearranging today, but I have a feeling my ADHD will get the best of me and I’ll bounce from room to room, not getting much of anything done. Wish me luck.
I had a doctor appointment yesterday. I am now being medicated for my bipolar disorder as well as my ADHD. It kind of concerns me taking a new psych med, bit I’m optimistic that it will bring some positive change. My doctor also wants me to have an EKG to make sure the stimulants aren’t having any adverse effects on my heart. I’m told this is common practice on “older” adults. What the hell, “older”?? I’m only 43! Oh well, I guess I’m not 20 anymore. LOL
In short, I also want to say “thank you” very much to those of you who read and follow my blog. I truly hope to give readers insight on what living with ADHD is like. God Bless!
My phone is at 15%, and I’ve decided to force myself to write until it’s dead. So I hope everyone is having a nice start to their fall. Mine has been hectic, but things are calming down a bit, thank goodness, as we all begin to prepare for the holiday rush.
So, I am mentally healthy these days as I am now being mecicated for my bi-polar disorder ad well as my ADHD. Things are going well except that my Vyvanse doesn’t seem to be working. I have a Dr appt next week and I think I’ll be asking her to increase my dose.
So, I now don’t feel so guilty as I’ve touched base with ya’ll. Have a wonderful night!
