I see this everywhere....truly intelligent gifted people that have horrible self-images from a life of rejection and the result is a quirky personality.
I created this quote to boil it down....."Stupid" judges "Intelligent" to be "Retarded".
Thanks for the thought. I'm not sure this would vibe with her. She is quite informed on ADHD, has strong opinions about it too. Her focus does tend to wander sometimes, but whose doesn't? Overall, I would say she's very self-aware. She can look back on a situation objectively and see where she acted out of intent or by accident . She recognizes her actions.
Even though she exhibits some bipolar tendencies, I don't think it's drastic enough to say she IS bipolar, and I don't think she needs medicated or anything like that. Basically, we need to figure out, together, how to talk about things without getting upset. One person gets upset, that feeds anothers emotions, and the cycle starts. The same thing happens with our powerful love, too. We're both very empathic, and I think sometimes that becomes a weakness of ours because we both tend to start feeling whatever the other person is feeling.
Thanks again, Ron
