I’m a noob.
Just wanted to say hey, my name is Ivy! I’m a wife and Mama of 3 little girls. I’m 40 but still feel like I’m 16 and I’m quite a mess at times but I learned to hide it well! I Was told as a child (5 or 6 I think) that I had this thing called ADHD and was given meds. My parents didn’t want to accept it but they gave me the meds anyway. I was so messed up from them I couldn’t even write my name at school! My parents never gave me the meds again and never spoke of ADHD again either. They don’t believe in ADHD or depression or anxiety… or anything I said when I was little… or now for that matter. Luckily, I have learned that I don’t need to have their approval to live my life nor do I need to tell them everything! Lol! You can imagine how easy and blissful my childhood was…😳🙄. I struggled for many, many years. Always felt like I was dumb, lazy and just plane different. I know not that is far from the truth. I was finally officially diagnosed at 37. I started meds and have been working on me since. That’s why I’m here now. Trying to keep taking steps to make life easier for myself. so I figure I would come in here and put myself out there and see what happens! I have never felt so aligned with what people are saying before in my life until being in here and reading your posts. What a trip. Feeling a bit less alone already. Anyway, glad to be here and hope this works out well for us all!! I’ll take any advice when it comes to the app that I can get. Besides the people, I’m still feeling a bit skeptical about how much this will help but I am hopeful! Fingers crossed 🤞🏻
