I relate to that message so much, but it is infuriating that I can’t do anything about it.
My husband and I were driving to the store and he asked why I kept flipping through stations or songs on my iPod while driving (I do this even when he’s driving). I didn’t have an answer, it’s just something I do. And he asks me about it all the time. This time, I blurted out that’s how it is in my head. It doesn’t explain why I do it, but I guess I just wanted him to understand how I feel. Someone is constantly flipping channels, the volume is loud, and 20 different channels are going at the same time. This is why it’s hard to hear. This is why my family thought u had a hearing problem all this time.
Ever since we have been together, my husband assumed I am “acting” like I can’t stay focused, or being dramatic when I am stressed out and tell him I have too much going on and to him it appears I don’t. Laundry takes me forever because I forget to put the clothes in, finish putting them in, transferring them to the dryer, and taking them out and folding them. If I even get that far, it takes me up to 8 hours to just do that. It’s not a game, and it’s not fun either.
