One of my worst tantrums,only a few years ago,before i was diagnosed with A.D.H.D.Feeling that I was being cheated on due to low self esteem,yet I'm not an undesirable woman.,my partner keeps telling me,the same one I threw a brick through his glass door.Shocking when I see myself there.We dont open that subject,never.My shame was evident and lasted a thousand years to now.'Writing'this down now actually gets rid of it.
I am married to a person who has LD. Low esteem is his biggest problem. He always ends a conversation bragging about his accomplishments (sometimes to people that have accomplished a lot more) No matter how many times the family tells him that he has done well, he always seems to need reassurance even at the age of 50. I am interested to know from other people with LD how I can help. (I work a full time job and have 3 young children; he is like the fourth child).
