Memoirs of an ADHD Mom

Kate SM1Kate, a real ADHD mom, shares her problem of keeping friends and why she only has one BFF . . .
I very literally have been able to keep one friend (yes, you heard me right, ONE). Even keeping that one friend is sometimes tricky! Luckily, she is able to forgive my rudeness, inappropriate social etiquette and general flake is behavior most of the time, but even she has limits I can push!

Kate SM1Kate, a real ADHD mom really could use some suggestions...

Like many of you, I didn't grow up knowing I had ADHD. I went through the same struggles you did, and like you, I naturally figured out ways to cope without even being aware of what I was doing.

I started thinking of all the things I do in my every day that help me live with ADHD. I may lose you here, as some of them are just plain weird, but I'll lay it all out there in hopes of finding people who relate and in hopes of getting more...
