My ADD/ADHD mind

How I see the world with ADD eyes

Moments where the sky is blue, come few and far between.
The darkness wraps around my life, sunshine rarely seen.
I can't seem to see the brightness, that other people see.
I feel alone in my bubble, it's me and only me.

Where is my laughter, my smile, my happy?
They were there just a minute ago.
I recall that things were going smoothly
But the rough ride is beginning again, how was i to know?

There was a time i cherished life and loved to feel so free
Now i'm shackled in this hell, somebody please help me.
How can things change so quickly, for seemingly no reason at all
Just when i'm beginning to rise up, i slip and then i fall

I can't seem to stop the cycle, of whatever this thing is
Round and round and up and down, back and forth again
Onlookers use their eyes to strip me of my pride
They refuse to see the sadness i feel, it tears me up inside

Why can't i just be normal, and live life without a care
Never doubting myself, living day by day, racing here and there
Taking on the tasks of a soccer mom, why is that so hard
All i ask is to stop the madness, one step back but two steps forward

Nobody tries to understand me inside and out like they do for others
I feel ashamed like i don't deserve to be a friend or lover
For now i'll sit here wondering, why i'm in this place called hell
When i find the answer to fix this, you can be sure that i will tell.

Wow-- love your expression of the effects of ADD/ADHD -- my husband and I just listened to Dr. Daniel Amen's audio "Change Your Brain, Change Your Life" and would recommend that if you are looking for some ideas about how to better cope. All the best! ~Cynthia
