I'm worried I've pushed my best friend away by being too intense

DEAR DEIDRE: I THINK I’ve ruined my friendship with my best female mate by messaging her too much.

We’re both 17 and she’s told me our friendship is “uncomfortable”.

She said she doesn’t want to hurt me but needs space.

I feel really bad now, and guilty. I’m worried I’ll lose her.

DEIDRE SAYS: She clearly cares about you or she wouldn’t have been so honest.

It was brave of you to tell her about your ADHD, and it will help her to be more understanding.

Now she’s told you how she feels and you’ve learned her boundaries, you can try to give her more space by keeping track of how often you message.

For specialist support, get in touch with the ADHD Information Service (addiss.co.uk).
