I created this blog to share the things I’m learning about ADHD with other Adult ADHDers like myself. I want to help you understand your brain and how to work with it properly so you can have better control over your mind and more stability in your life. I want this blog to serve as a guide for you on your journey.
I’ll be writing a lot about Adult ADHD, but I’ll also write about things like Bipolar, Anxiety and Depression. I’m diagnosed with both Bipolar and ADHD, so I have plenty to say about both disorders. And you’ll hear a lot about Anxiety and Depression because they often accompany ADHD.
People with ADHD live with a lot of the same symptoms and experiences as many other mental disorders, and I plan to cover as much as possible. I look forward to helping you figure yourself out as I figure my own self out!
I want to help you…
Learn about your brain and how to work with it rather than against it. Separate Myth from Fact, and Remove harmful Stigma and Assumptions.
Discover what tools work best for you. Use them to Enhance your Quality of Life and feel less Overwhelmed.
Accept and Appreciate the things about yourself you cannot change. Find the things you can change, and Grow into the person you want to be. Strive not to be better than those around you, but to always be better than who you were yesterday.
My Story in a Nutshell
I was diagnosed with Bipolar as a teenager, and have struggled to accept that diagnosis until very recently. After a several months long bout of depression, I feel I’m finally ready to accept that I do in fact have Bipolar disorder.
It is a term used to describe what one could call a collapse of a perceived meaning in life…an eruption into your life of a deep sense of meaninglessness. The inner state in some cases is very close to what is conventionally called depression. Nothing makes sense anymore, there’s no purpose to anything.
