Last night I was on this site, I really needed to assess where I am and if I am on the right track with myself emotionally. Now that my husband and I are no longer together, I see this site as a tie to stay connected to what was my reality.
A combination of one thing or another I have pulled away from seeking God, but over the past few days I have set the TV to record one Christian show or another. It just so happened that I set the TV to record Abundant Life. I am not a catholic, but I was drawn to the show by the title. Today was the first day that the show recorded. Instead of watching the day long of election, I went to see what I had recorded. After deleting several also recorded Christian shows, too positive, to pessimistic, to condemning… I clicked on the Abundant Life recording. The topic ADHD!!! Was this God seeking me or what!
The topic ADHD, it was a good 10 minutes into the show when the host began to talk about the book Driven to Distraction, that I recalled the picture of Dr. Hallowell I had so often noticed on this site… AND IT CLICKED! That’s the guy, the pleasant looking guy on the ADD Marriage site!!!!
My husband aka almost ex-husband has thrown himself into religion and in the course of doing so, he denounces that he has ADD. I haven’t been on this site in some months and have since left my husband. My greatest struggle is balancing my faith with the reality of what my life was like with my ADD husband and my pending divorce. I am going to write in another post regarding where I am at now with my husbands ADD.
I will use this post for any possible discussion or feedback about ADD and faith. I know there may not be any scriptures in the bible about ADD, but are there any scriptures or guidance I can share with my husband to open his eyes that ADD IS REAL and he too is perfectly created with it…but we have to address it. I feel like if it isn’t in the bible, he won’t address it as he is trying to pray it away.
I will await the second part of the series. The show hasn't addressed faith as of yet, I hope it will. But, just being on a Christian site will let Christians know... it is real!
GOD Bless you!
