Im new here. And I am here because I feel so alone.
And for the first time in my life I am asking for help and for some among you guys to tell me I am not alone. Please tell me you are with me in this as I am writing this with tears streaming down me face.
I have just turned 35. And after 20 years of knowing I have ADHD (undiagnosed) myself I have finally spoken out about it to my family and now am in the process of getting a professional diagnosis.
After being different all my life, after everyone always telling me things such as “Your so weird”, “Your so authentic”, “Your not like everyone else here”, “Your not like us”, “I wouldnt expect you to fit in”, “You will never be like us”, etc I finally feel that I found my tribe. And I just need you guys to tell me I found my tribe.
Because even if I never want to conform to anything and being a true maverick I just really truely want to belong. Do you guys understand? I so hope someone can understand.
And in sharing this I hope I can show others who are feeling alone like me, can see that we are together in this and the struggle is real. Because it has been for me all my life.
And now finally I will never deny why anymore.
tell me and lets tell eachother : You are not alone:love_you_gesture:
Thank you. With love and respect, Hanna
