Parents of ADHD Children
I'm Done With Facebook!
I know….crazy post title, right? But to be honest, I cannot stand reading and seeing photos of all of my friends/aquaintances and their kids! Their kids who are always excelling at some sport or getting some award for this or that. Are you thinking that I am a jealous person? I’m not…...it’s not what you think…I’m happy for them (really) just sad for my son and me.
I always hoped that he would be good at something….but as I’ve posted before, we haven’t quite found our niche and he dropped out of everything when he was younger (he’s 10) and these kiddos did not. Which is why their parents post pictures of a wonderful baseball season, or 1st place swimmer….etc. What could my update be?......Hasn’t bothered his brother for an hour? Didn’t get in trouble for a day? Didn’t over-react to something petty? Actually followed my dierection and listened to me? I don’t think those are “post worthy”. I know I sound like I"m whining but it’s just another way that my son is “left out” - again. I feel so sad when I see all of those people out there doing and going and we are home since everything is “boring” and everyone is “stupid” ...so, he’s not included in much. And the few friends he had…he ruined with trying to be “cool” with other kids who don’t even acknowledge him.
Sorry to ramble…......so many people don’t realize the sadness that comes with ADHD….....it’s just hard. :(
Thanks for listening. Gonna go update my facebook status!! LOL
