Many countries celebrate and recognizes Mother’s Day. In Canada (where live), like in many other countries, we celebrate this day on the second Sunday of May. This year, Mother’s Day was celebrated on the 8th of May.
So, for that reason, this month’s blog posts will focus on all the mothers out there, who have ADHD.
All Things Motherhood
Being a mom does have its ups and downs, comes with good and bad, and comes with various challenges. And this goes for all moms, whether you have ADHD or not. Whether you are a neurotypical mom or a mom with ADHD, motherhood comes with challenges.
Being a mom and having kids comes with a lot of responsibilities.
However, ADHD can add some extra and different challenges for the moms who have it. As much as all moms may struggle with very similar things, it can be to a different level for moms with ADHD.
Moms with ADHD experience and struggle with things differently than neurotypical moms do.
What’s To Come
It is important to bring attention to the experiences of moms with ADHD. Due to how our brains are wired and such, the challenges of moms with ADHD differ a bit from neurotypical moms. Not better or worse, just different.
As challenging as it may be, there are still things we can do to make it easier for ourselves. We are more than capable of being good moms.
