Hey. I'm Dan. Sure you can tell this is my first post here. I don't know the process. How in the world am I supposed to ever progress in life, when I have no executive function and my anger at my own inadequacies, mixed with need to prove everyone wrong, is the only thing ever keeping myself from killing myself.

    You reframe your thoughts. Question the inherent assumptions you have made here. You DO have executive function, but yours is at odds with the typical brand of executive function that fuels our current society. Your need to prove everyone wrong has given you meaning. Is that a bad thing? One of the things we Adhd folks are great at is beating up on ourselves. We are the very best at it. Redirecting that energy into the things that bring us joy, quieting the voices that say we’re are not good enough, etc., those are the things that will help us “progress in life” (but I would question that phrase as well).
