Success as an ADHDer

We all have struggles. We all go through difficult times. Some more than others, but it’s something that we all face at one point or another. It is a part of life and a part of being human.

As ADHDers/ADDers, things are a little different. Not only do we struggle and go through difficult times like every neurotypical person does. But we also struggle with the little daily things. Because of how our brains work, ADHDers/ADDers tend to have a harder time with things that neurotypical people don’t and would most likely not have a problem.

With all the struggles, it can be easy to feel defeated, overwhelmed, ashamed, worried, just to name a few. As someone with ADHD/ADD, it’s all things that I’ve gone through and I know that I’m not alone, as there are so many people out there with ADHD/ADD as well, individuals who struggle with similar things I do and who can most likely relate. Although everyone with ADHD/ADD is different and experience it differently, the symptoms and struggles are still very similar, based on what I’ve read and seen.

However, no matter the challenges are that come with having ADHD/ADD, no matter how disheartening it may feel sometimes, every individual with ADHD/ADD can still live a happy, productive and successful life. There are so many individuals out there who have ADHD/ADD and have the same struggles every other ADHDer/ADDer, who live happy lives, have successful life, and are able to be productive.

If you search the internet, I’m sure you’ll find a few. Granted most are famous individuals.

However, there are also so many others out there who are able to do the same as those you find on the internet. So many ADHDers/ADDers are able to live successful and productive lives just like the ones you find while searching the internet. The only difference is they are not all famous and well-known by the general public.

All ADHDers/ADDers have the ability to overcome their struggles and live happy and successful lives.

  • Great post! I think most people associate ADD/ADHD with children and think it’s something that you outgrow, but that’s not necessarily the case.

    All the best, Michelle (

  • Great points Dominique! We can’t control the cards we were dealt, put we can choose how to play our hand!
