    Women and girls with ADHD/ADD

    When people think of ADHD/ADD, I think it’s easy to think of it as boy/man/male thing and to think of hyperactivity. For a long time, we’ve thought of ADHD/ADD as something only boys and men had. It can also be really easy to notice a hyperactive kid. However, there is quite a bit that we may forget, but need to remember. And that is that women and girls can also have ADHD/ADD. It is just as possible for girls and women to have it, as it is for their male counterparts. The things to remember about ADHD/ADD can make for a long list and we may be here for a…

    Adults with ADHD/ADD

    As some may already know, ADHD/ADD affects both kids and adults alike. It’s not something that everyone may realize. Yes, it does usually start in childhood (whether it’s diagnosed or not), and in a lot of cases, continues on in adulthood. Not everyone outgrows their ADHD/ADD. I certainly didn’t. Apparently, about 2/3 of kids with ADHD/ADD have it as adults as well. Although the numbers may differ a little, it is still a consensus that quite a few individuals, who have ADHD/ADD as kids, become adults with it. So, the thought that kids will simply outgrow their ADHD/ADD isn’t always the case. Sure, some might, which is definitely great for…

    There it is again

    The fear of failure is something no one really likes. Many of us may prefer to avoid it as much as possible. However, it is still a part of life. At some point, we will fail at something. We may fail a test, a recipe, or something entirely. However, for those who have ADHD/ADD, it’s different. Because our brain is wired differently, we face a whole different set of challenges and difficulties, and with that, comes more failure than others with non-ADHD/ADD. Or at least, different kinds of failures. As much as we may not like it, it’s something that we’ve grown accustom to and does seem to kind of…

    Where did I put that?

    There are a lot of things that ADHDers/ADDers struggle with. If you have it, or have read my previous posts, this goes without saying. You know about it, especially if you have it. Here’s another struggle for us: organization. Sure, some people might say we all struggle with it sometimes, which might be true. However, for those with ADHD/ADD, it’s more than just some of the times. It’s ALL the time. It’s something we struggle with, something we avoid, something we just don’t like. We are disorganized so often that it’s kind of part of our lives. Disorganization every moment of the day is normal for us ADHDers/ADDers. We can…

    Emotions

    Happiness. Anger. Sadness. Content. Emotions. We all have them. It’s all part of being human. No matter who we are, we will have feelings. From the moment we are born until the day we die. This is a given to many, if not all, of us. Absolutely normal. It’s something that a lot of us learn early on. How many of us have heard from others that it’s normal to feel the way we’re feeling? Many of us have probably heard this as toddlers from parents, grandparents, or whomever we were with at the time. I know I have. And I know tell my kids the same thing. Yes, having…
