The Dutch guy...

Hi there!
My name Is Gerwin, 32 year young man from The Netherlands.
I have been diagnosed with ADHD and am taking medication to get myself a little "under control"

my history:

After beeing married for 5 years i reached the boiling point with my former partner. Both of us didn't know what was going on at the time, but i was on a constant search for impulses. I tried everything including a different job, different house, cars and even lifestyle.
Later we got a divorce and at that time my life just flew out of control.
In the last year alone i had 6 jobs....

My current girlfriend is supersweet, but i am guessing this ADHD will become an issue again in our relationship as it is giving some minor problems already(or still?).

Why did i sign up here, you might ask... well i'd rather speak/ type English than Dutch and in The Netherlands i find the fora a little depressing.
I hope to find some answers for my girlfriend so her life around me will become more fun.

I hope to learn and maybe enlighten others on this forum.
G.

HI and Welcome.

There's quite a few Dutchmen around here including the moderator of body and mind.

All the best with your treatment.

Yes, we have lifts, you have hijsbakkies. But dont ask me anything else. I can read Zuidafrikaans but not write or speak it.
