Parents with ADHD who have kids with ADHD...


Woke up today. Had a little cry (again. most days. just part of life now) over how often I have lost my shit on him throughout his life and how wounded he is because of me and how if I weren't so monstrously awful he'd be fine and on and on and on....

then proceeded to get into a yelling match with him when he was incredibly rude and inappropriate before I'd had a coffee.

honestly, the struggle is real. don't waste the time I have in shame and remorse.

I'm listening to Gabor Matè's Scattered Minds on audible right now and it's helping immensely. It's hugely healing. Really.

No need to reply. Go easy on yourself. Sending a virtual hug.
