Love ADD learning disabilities and respect

I am totally in love and have found the perfect woman for me.She doesn't see me as a person with learning disabilities. I am very fortunate that way. As a matter fact I am the one who is looking at my disabilities harder now than I ever have. I think it's because in my forty five years I haven't found anything I really am good at. I like doing a lot of different things but because of of my limited ability I just can't grasp the whole concept. For example doing a brake job on a car.I look look at the diagrams read the steps but because of my memory and coordination I just can't do it.
I am a vey caring, sentive peroson, and i like to treat people the way I want to be treated. I hate being disrespected and called dumb and retarded espically in the work place.
My girlfriends loves me so much, and I love her with all my heart.I have known her for a few years and we are best friends. She has some physical disabilties, but I don't see them. One day we are gonna get married.I am so affraid of doing something to mess things up. Thats the way my luck goes. We have promised one another that if we run into problems that we wouuld go see a marriga cunsler together. She works to jobs and doesn't have Add.

Back when I was born their wasn't many resorces or places to go for help.Sometimes I feel so alone and helpless.

Re: Love ADD learning disabilities and respect

Congratulations! Love is great.

I wouldn't be so hard on yourself. I think that sometimes when things seem hard it can be easy to believe them impossible. I don't think they really are though. We just need to look at things differently than most people, that's all.

What works for the average Joe, learning-wise, might not work for people with ADHD. Because of this we are often labeled young and convinced that we are dumb. This should be a criminal offense in my opinion.

From what I've read of your post, you seem smart and capable to me. I think that perhaps you just need convincing that you aren't dumb at all. In fact, you probably have abilities that most people don't.

When you go to do something, forget what 'they' thought you. Feel free; release your mental animal on the problem and do it your own way. It is probably better than theirs. Really.

Re: Love ADD learning disabilities and respect

Life for me has gotten better. My mom is helping me with my credit card debt. My girl friend is really being understanging. It helps to get things out in the open. It's like a breath of fresh air.
Peace, Love and I hope everone has a great holiday season
