Counseling

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.

Here are some symptoms of inattention:

-Careless mistakes/lack of attention ✔️

-Lack of sustained attention ✔️

-Poor Listening ✔️

-lose focus/easy sidetracked ✔️

–Poor organization ✔️

-Losing things ✔️

-Mind wanders a lot ✔️

-Forgetful in daily activities ✔️

Here are some symptoms of hyperactivity

-Fidgeting ✔️

–Can’t stay seated ✔️

-Feeling Restless

-Difficulty with quiet activity ✔️

-On the go, uncomfortable sitting still ✔️

-Talking excessively ✔️

-Interrupting others ✔️

Yes, I do all of those things. Literally I feel like this meme was made especially for me.

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.
