I used to be a terrible drunk. I would fall out with people, I’d cause a scene, I’d get paranoid and start more scenes, I would say inappropriate things because I had no filter and I was just generally a mess.
My friends eventually had enough and pushed me away because they knew we couldn’t socialise together since all I would do is ruin their night and black out and not remember a thing.
That’s the thing with ADHD. Impulsiveness, addictive personality and no filter!
I did that up until earlier this year when I’d had enough of seeing that disappointed look on people’s faces so I started seeing a counsellor.
I’m grateful for those friends who stuck with me through my darkness though because that’s what you call a true friend - loving you from a distance when you’re being unreasonable and welcoming you back when you’re in a good place.
I’ve never looked back and really wish I’d done it years ago. It would have saved a lot of heartache.
But you don’t change until things get to breaking point. Until you’ve got on someone’s last nerve and they lose the rag and that’s when you realise what a dick you’ve been.
It’s never too late for change. Slow and steady wins the race ❤️ - 32 minutes ago
