Re: The what's bothering you RIGHT NOW thread Part III

The forum is becoming more and more judgemental and intolerant, from how people are expected to express themselves to the topics that people are allowed to associate with ADHd. I don't mean the threads closed by mods but just the replies by members as in.. "Ooh..that's not ADHD..this is not ADHd...how dare anything that isn't cute and fluffy be associated with ADHd...."

Yikes.

I don't take cocaine, and I don't think it's prescribed here, but I've read that Ritalin, which I take on prescription, is chemically very similar to cocaine. I don't advocate taking anything illegal.

I haven't noticed, but I don't read the other sections, like, at all. Members object to non-favourable views of ADHD?

Re: The what's bothering you RIGHT NOW thread Part III

Uggh..mil asked me for a £1000,- so she can take her staff on a holiday. I don't know why it bothers me and it bothers me that it bothers me. I'd agreed to give her the money a long time ago, in fact I thought that hubby had already transferred it to her from my account. She isn't asking out of selfishness. She just want SME to do something nice for her staff maybe so I feel closer to them IR get their blessings or something like that. Still, it's a lot of money. I'm not even sure I have that much in my account.

Well, the truth is I guess the reason it bugs me is because just a few days ago she told me that she wants nothing else from hubbyexvept that he call s her regularly. She keeps asking him for money though but apparently the fact that he gives her money, has even taken out s huge loan for her, m means nothing. She actually said that it means nothing. She also said she never asks for anything else but affection and for us to call but obviously that's not true.

Anyway, I've promised her ye
are ago that I'll give her this money so I'm going to and its fine. I shouldn't be so stingy..or judgmentsl. I just hope she won't tell my parents. They keep plying us with money and she keeps taking it from us. They won't like it.

Re: The what's bothering you RIGHT NOW thread Part III

Doesn't sound right, Fuzz. Then again, don't know your family. I have a friend who tells me I have to get out of the house ASAP, away from my crazy parents, but I'd have to reveal very delicate stuff to explain why that would be a very poor idea. It's not like I don't want to every day.

Re: The what's bothering you RIGHT NOW thread Part III

The LOL(Little Old Lady) that I am a companion for has a family that has no clue that her age, her degree of macular degeneration and her recovery from a broken hip is never going to make her able to bathe, make food or coffee, or even get around much out of the again. She is happily and easily getting around her monstrous 4000 square ft. home, she is unbelievably totally continent, but she has no desire to go anywhere because she's happy and comfortable at home. They may pay me well, but I am HER advocate.

They object to non-favorable views, overly favorable views,.. it's all very complicated and hard to keep up with.

Did you ask her if she would take a phone call instead? I guess £1000, is a lot,.. so maybe it'd have to be a conference call.
(You aren't being judgemental at all .. get that craap out of your head!! )

I think you're very honest and strong to be able to talk about these things - for me they make me so uncomfortable. I'd like to be more like you.

Re: The what's bothering you RIGHT NOW thread Part III

Im dreading Christmas this year... My two boys will be with their mom (They rather be with me), my back stabbing older brother will be here (long story) and I hate the holidays since my dad passed about 5 years ago.

I would sit and be in my own world but I have to keep my fiancee calm (She's OCD) because she hates my brother too and the holidays are hard because her mom passed as well and her dad lives over seas.

I guess sometimes there seems like a pressure to understand add or whatever through someone else's emotions (ex: if I've offended someone, I have to acquiesce to his or her point of view). So there's that. But mostly it's just hard for me to adhere to a particular viewpoint about some of the more abstract aspects of add for any length of time. That usually amounts to me arguing about the subject with someone who seemingly cares more about the subject than I do, when it's more I'd rather hold off a bit from making a definitive judgement when there are clear ambiguities.
