I have begun to be quite frightened abt digging to much into brain conditions and labels as find my self diagnosing with everything although I went on a course the other week about adhd and something called co morbidity think that i were if u are on the autistic wavelength you are more than likely tuning into adhd as well and is highly likely you have this thing emotional deregulation bit like a train going off the rails your emotions have done the same !!!
people who hAVE NOT GOT THESE conditions in the family or themselves do not understand why it is so important to have a formal diagnoses and it is quite simple it confirms your thoughts and you have no chance of getting help unless formally got a diagnoses and it can be very demoralizing being told why is it so important to have the label it just explains things and knowing it is physiological wow helps nearly 90 %
I am quite happy to talk about my brain and its countless problems cos dispite them if u get to know me I am not that different from other people you may know in
your address book !!!! and i tell people i am diabetic cos u never know when may have diabetic attack but the same with ADD asd and ptsd and any other arrangement of letters that i carry around with me.
Emotions are not valued enough and how we are effected one of the symptoms of adhd is extreme reactions to situations but on being told that u have to wait maybe up to three years for help the trauma of this obviously makes things worse and wld no way happen if was a physical ailment but still fight on Macduff and out of the night that covers me black as the pit from pole I thank thee God for my unconquerable soul wld not be good to give up as that would prove defeat but am getting rather tired now !!
It has also been proved that people suffering from adhd / autism are more likely to suffer as well from ptsd which has been a puzzle for ages why does one person get ptsd and not the twin / friend who went through the same experience !!!
the worst thing i find with my unusual brain is the way my thoughts go round in loops and have to try and find ways of halting the loop of thought !!
I have been for CBT countless times but has no effect and to challenge the thoughts when creep into my conscious but this so difficult when all other systems in my body are breaking down and having a hissy fit and so called experts tell me all I am doing is catastrophizing the situation oh no i am not these situations have happened so not making mountains out of molehills and react far to quickly situations without thinking of the consequences such drinking loads of lager / cider chocs not good idea but deffo when not a diabetic !!! feeling tired now and want a cuppa and going to think of the different solutions i have to get myself out of my whirlwind !!
