Newbie in France

Just wanted to say hi and to let you all know how nice it is to not feel alone.
I realised recently that I have ADhD. It is self diagnosed but the descriptions I have read fit to a T. I am often pretty hypoactive and a dreamer but also have a hyperside that I see coming out more and more. Because I tend to rush at things and then crash for days I have little by little stopped myself doing things as I get fed up with starting projects and never getting them finished.
I am now trying to look at the positive sides and working on building them.
I have big problems with my OH not understanding me but understanding myself better helps.
I am 43 with 4 kids, my daughter who is 14 is just like me so I hope to get some help for her now before she ends up feeling lazy and depressed becasue of not fullfilling her potential, like me. The younger ones are more hyper and I have seen a school psycologist to talk about them so that if there is a prob we can catch it, for now they are in a tiny school with an open attitude where they are much loved so that helps.
