Hi, I'm 28 and recently was diagnosed with inattentive ADD. For a lot of my teenage years and twenties my life has been chaotic. Anyway now I have an explanation for how I function and am ready to put in the work to address and manage it better.
One thing that i need to face is getting the 'simple' things in my life in order. Can anyone relate to always avoiding things like paperwork, bills etc until things become crisis-y? Logically I know i just need to sit down and sort things out but I feel ashamed about how impossible that is (has been) for me. Unpaid fines, overdue bills, school enrollments for my children, setting up direct debits, lodging tax returns...etc..
Can anyone relate to this and been able to overcome it? Anyone have any advice on how to face this pile of terror. Where do I start? What support could i look for? I don't really have family or friends close enough that I would be able to admit what a mess things are in. Has anyone hired a life coach, is that something they would help with?
Thank you for reading
