ADHD: Asking for help
Why don’t we ask for help? Or why do we feel shame asking for help?
ADHD: in a muddle again
We get into muddles and are fearful to ask for some help. Even if all we need is to talk through the issue to become clearer on what is actually the issue.
ADHD: Need Help?
Somehow, for some reason, if we ask for help it is when the clock has run out on us. Instead, asking for help up front would give the helper and us an opportunity to do something about the situation at hand.
ADHD: We Wait
We wait, getting more stressed, digging the hole deeper. We don’t seem to learn from past situations. We dig the same hole over and over again. Waiting before we ask for help.
ADHD: The Rub
Do we look down on other people who ask for help? Do we deny the people who ask us for help? No and no. So why the double standard?
I wish I knew the answer to this question. I could help a lot of my ADHD clients and my ADHD self.
