Shame, Guilt. Explain Adult ADHD


Part of #ExplainAdultADHD.  A campaign to reduce the ignorance, misinformation, and stigma against adults with ADHD.

Shame, Guilt.

“When I screw up again, when I let someone down again, I feel guilt and shame and I want to cry.

I feel guilt and shame that it has happened again and I haven’t fixed the problem.

I wish I could just explain, and be believed, and not have it used against me.

I wish you knew what I was thinking, what I was trying to do. It looks like I don’t care, but I do.

And now I bury these thoughts and try again.”

By Shamed.
