The strange thing about being diagnosed with ADHD later in life is that you go through a grief cycle on your road to acceptance…well, at least I did/am. Denial obviously I think you know I was in denial from the previous episodes and knowing how many times I had to be told that yes I do in fact have or are ADHD. Being angry was easy, I was angry that no one knew enough sooner so I could have went through childhood and early adult hood differently. Angry at myself, my family, my doctors, my teachers, why didn’t anyone know? It was the 80’s that’s why, and I m inattentive type. I was depressed because now I wasn’t just quirky there was something truly different about me from most people. I knew this though I always felt broken somehow or just not right. This episode is all about my view on the process of grief that lead to my acceptance.
