As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, I’ve started counseling. I’ve had some things happen to me in my past that I never worked through. I just pushed them away and carried on. And that wasn’t the best thing for me to do.
My friend Janeth, pronounced Janet, had been on me to start seeing a counselor. So finally I caved and did. Here’s how that first day went. “So what made you decide to see a counselor?” She said. My response, “My friend Janeth wouldn’t get off my back about it, so here I am.”
I will admit, it’s actually been quiet helpful. I have a lot of anxiety, fear, and a million other issues. And one thing I found out that doesn’t surprise me at all, and if you know me you won’t be shocked by this either. I have ADHD. Dun, Dun, Dun…. shocked? Yeah not so much. I’ve known for years upon years that I had that. It has gotten worse with age.

Now I’m choosing to not medicate. I have my own thoughts and feeling about psychiatric medication. How ever I do use CBD oil which helps me a lot. I feel like CBD is the best option for me.
So, do you or anyone you know have ADHD? How do their great it? Let me know in the comments below.
