Adult who Acted Out Sexually as a Child no memories of abuse
Wow! I am also the CL on the ADHD forum and am now trying to figure out which place you should be posting too. Well, it really doesn't matter. The fact that you are posting and putting this down in print is a very healthy sign as well as a cry for help.
I am guessing that you never really got much help for the ADHD as a child. If so, tying that into the abuse, would explain a lot. By the way, ADHD is also genetic. If you have it, so might your daughter.
And, ya - if you do have ADHD, then you certainly were missing the dopamine screw. But man, you also got a few extra screws, nuts, bolts, etc. along the way. Because of my work on this site - http://www.medhelp.org/forums/ADD---ADHD/show/175
I have links for adults with ADHD that might prove helpful to you. But, I think, what you really need is a good psyc to explain to you what has been happening to you and that its not your fault. If that won't work, then understanding what ADHD is and what it does to kids and adults will also be very helpful to you.
I must add that your post is very well written. It must not have been easy for you - and yet, you must have had a reason to do so. I think ( and this sounds kind of crazy based only on one post from you - but I have been doing this for years) that you have the strength and intelligence to deal with this if you can get the right information. If I can help with that let me know. But obviously, a one on one with a professional would the best choice. Let me know if you need more info either here or on the ADHD forum. Best wishes.
