Something told me not to tell my dad i was diagnosed ADHD. He never understood mental health issues. But i time him anyway. My mistake. I really wasn't surprised when he said "you just need to change your thinking. Don't let them tell you your brain is broken." Let me tell you, this comes from the man who also said "you shouldn't be on antidepressants. Why would you want to take something that alters your brain chemistry?" 🤦 I just want to find support in my family! Ugh
They mean well. It’s a generational thing. My mom thinks people with mental health are just self obsessed 😒😒 it’s obviously not the case. I find Support now with friends instead and just online! I YouTube a lot if my questions and worries and feel so understood from just peoples videos and stories!
What really gets me is that he's dating a psychiatrist and works in a psychiatrists office!
He may have meant to continue ... broken, it just works differently.
