MIRELLA is on a distinguished road
Smile Hi

century blue

Hi. my name is Mirella, I am 42yrs old & latin..I have just been DX with ADHD..at the same time that both my 16yr daughter & 9yr son have..we knew it was genetic so we figured it to be me it came from! my poor husband has been dealing with all of us and going crazy! now he knows why! I have been married for 20+ years and been with my husband a total of 25+ yrs.. I'm a Pharmacist by profession. Luckily for me I am good at multitasking at work,& need a constant hum. I cannot sit still for long, I love to shop and that is my greatest impulse.. spending money is my husbands greatest fear!! According to him I work so I can shop. I 'm trying to see ADHD from a personal side and not clincial side I am used to.. esp since now that my kids have it too I have to realize that in order for them to succed I have to be able to help them. My hubby is having the roughest time of all for years he thought I was just a pushy, bossy control freak who had to have it all her way.. now we know different! I've always known that I tire him out but never knew why.. Bless him he has put up with alot these 25yrs and when he fianlly thought that he couldn't and didn't want to take it any more he finds out that not only am I adhd but the kids too.. so know we're trying to learn a new way to live.. He's very touchy feely and that has been his greatest complaint about me.. the emotional distance..
I'm an acts of service type person, and though I am ok in giving back hugs & kisses and even love to cuddle I am horrible at initating them or the "are U ok??" and listening bit.. since I can't sit still and totally focus on 1 person, which my hubby needs and thrives on.. I am trying but boy is it hard!!.. So any insite would be helpfull.. Mirella

Welcome to ADD Forums, Mirella....a pretty name.... You are a pharmacist, no kidding! I am impressed with your multi-tasking talents and the fact that you've been able to have this most prestigious career despite/with the ADD.....In any event, now that you have a diagnosis, there is a reason and a name for some of your struggles and you can begin to deal with them....your husband sounds great I look forward to reading more of your posts....you will get a lot of support here....

Mirella: Miami?? Really.....I hope to end up LIVING there someday...so I can do graduate work at Florida International U. Let me know how you like it...i.e. the beaches...and if you REALLY have to know Spanish to survive....and enjoy Cancun...absolutely...Hopefully Claudette will pass the other way... Stay safe
