the more the merrier!
YOu said so many things in your intro post that I totally relate to. One of the reasons I need to get counselling right now, and possibly meds, is that my ADD is affecting my relationship with DH. And i can't keep the house clean, which affects my self esteem which affects the way I can communicate ...etc. etc. ad nauseum.
to you about your previous relationship...journeymom-
YOur post is me... What can I say....i would seriously love to rent a dumpster, and just trash more than half the stuff in my house.
I just can't deal with it anymore.waiting2bemommy
- I was raised in the same environment. Suck it up, don't complain (even if there's a legitmate cause- I mean ESPECIALLY if there's a legitimate cause!) if a first you don't succeed try try again.....
All that did was reinforce the feeling that I must be stupid or crazy, because nonone else seemed to be having such a hard time with life as I was, so there must be something wrong w/me, right?
Couple that with hearing, "you're smart! you could DO it if you REALLY tried!"
Unfortunately this carries over into how I treat DH, even though I try not to, I still find myself spouting at him all the insane bull----- that my mother spouted at me.
Not that he hadn't already heard enough of that growing up already!
