    Called number 3. Does she have a diagnosis of ADHD?? Even as a child at school it seems she does. Overwhelmed & disorganized is often ADD/ADHD.

    Yes. Caller 3 maybe ADHD that may have been unaddressed.

    Prayers for this man. Wow. I feel for the last caller! Boy am I dealing with an outrageous neighbor myself. Out of no where she started attacking me verbally, wanting me to die. She would scream profanities. I did turn the other cheek for months. Then one day I did approach her asking her what I could do to make peace. No real answer. Basically that she is the one with a college education. (Just for info, we ever had we an argument, always had been friendly with one another) She would even use profanity when my grand-babies (age 1 -7) were in the backyard. I finally called the cops. They said they can do nothing since she is in HER yard. Fine. So now, I have to take my grand children to the park. I am waiting for the LORD to act. I know I have a great GOD,, greater is HE that is in me than he that is in the world. May HIS help be soon. Some friends even did a prayer walk in my neighborhood. There is NO reasoning with my neighbor. I have tried. Please pray for a turnaround in this situation. Thanks.
