I am a Mom with adhd who has been through a lot of trauma, and I have 3 children on the spectrum. I have gone through a lot in the last 20 years. I want to make the rest of our lives better. I am, myself, stuck in this space of being in and out of defense mode. I can't remember a time where I haven't been overwhelmed in my life. Maybe before age 7? I am here for my kids, and I don't know how to help myself. I have the meds, I've tried talk therapy. The demands on me can be so overwhelming, and it's so difficult when tye rest of the world/my parents and family etc just don't understand and keep unknowingly piling on even though I tell them I'm overwhelmed. I masked so heavily and that's how I made it through but inside I was broken and deeply felt alone in my struggles. How can I get out of this cycle?! 😫
