Received life story from Nicky
The many impressions of someone with ADD
This drawing is about me and I have ADD. I have been on medication for a few months and finally it is almost windless in my head. It was so busy in my head that it was driving me crazy myself. I am also very forgetful chaotic.
Now try to keep a diary on my phone because a regular diary gets lost :p
I have had a very troubled period. Now everything is finally starting to fall into place a bit. Starting to understand myself better and understand why I do things the way I do. People around me respect me and understand that some things are harder for me than for an average person without ADD.
If my interest is big enough, I do remember those things. I store what I need myself and the rest goes to waste. My storage is just not that big. I am easily distracted and if the TV is on, I find it difficult to follow a conversation. You have to look at me and tell me and only then will I listen.
I completed and passed an MBO course for the first time last year. That was good for my self-confidence. I also managed to hold on to a job for the first time in 3 years which I am also very proud of.
I do still have counselling from someone to talk to. It helps me sort out my head and make me understand better who I am and why I am the way I am.
I am finally happy with who I am.
From now on, everything can only get better.
