my daughter

Thu, Feb 15th 2007

I think my daughter might have ADD and she is worried about it too. the only thing she did very well in school but she didnt have to try it came natural. but she is so disorganized she is constantly losing things. and she cant be still she is always fidging around. and she cant control her tongue. she will blurt out things than wish she hadnt said them. she has trouble with relationships because she cant seem to just relax and have fun. its like she always has to be in control all the time even in relationships. and you cant talk to her because even when she ask for help she gets angry over it when the answer isnt what she wanted or if it goes against what she thinks. and she is sooo negative about everything. she has the most gloomy view on things i have ever seen. and she wants to rush everything
