My biggest challenge with my ADHD
is following through on techniques
and skills for helping me live a
“normal” life. I download the apps
but forget to open them or I use them
once and it didnt help so I end up
deleting it. I make lists then forget
to look at them, or get overwhelmed because
I dont know what to do first, or I make a list
for a few days, skip a day, and then one month
passes and I haven’t written another list
since, or I buy a calendar and forget to write
on it. It’s not like I dont want to help myself,
lord knows I wouldn’t wish this on anyone.
But, its infuriating when I cant even do the
things that are supposed to help me to get better.
Please, if you have the same struggle, or have any
helpful tips (I know not everyone is the same) I would really appreciate it. I am so lost and frustrated. I honestly hate myself alot of the time because I feel helpless and incompetent. I feel so so much shame and resentment and I am running out of options. Alot of the time I feel like no one understands me and I am alone in this. I was diagnosed at 23 and built up alot of unhelpful coping mechanisms and self hate over those undiagnosed years. Habits are hard to break especially for us ADHDers. Any advice is appreciated.
