Domestic Drama: Control the Clutter Already

Cleaning_LadyI’m a self-admitted neat and control freak. I’m not ashamed of it, either.

You see, I’m ADHD to the umpteenth power, so having structure and  order in my life helps me to manage my ADHD.

It’s funny how people who come to my home comment on how clean it is. I smile and say thank you, but inside I know it’s because of my secret.

What Not To Do:
Don’t play desperate and start begging your ex to get back together.  If someone says they don’t love you anymore; they need more space; or, they aren’t ready for a committed relationship, believe them.
