And not the life people said I could reclaim “if I lost weight and beat my depression.” I’m talking about the life I never knew I could have because I never truly felt in control of myself. It’s almost like I’ve been living most of my life without actually sitting in the driver’s seat. No matter how much I tried to deal with my issues, I still couldn’t get behind the wheel and I couldn’t understand why I felt so out of control.
As you talk about your struggles, I suddenly feel like there's an invisible community out there, others going through similar experiences where I had previously thought I was simply lacking in character or motivation. And so many new things have 'clicked' for me about my own brain since I started reading about your journey navigating ADHD. Thank you for sharing your insights.
