I got diagnosed with C-PTSD and ADHD a year ago. I'm honestly proud of how far I've come in a year. Although part of me still grieves over all of the things in my childhood that are suddenly starting to make sense.
Complex post traumatic stress disorder
Anxiety (Including GAD)
I definitely feel this! I felt a lot more drawn to my autistic diagnosis than my ADHD, even though I got them about the same time. I think there’s a lot of stuff adults and other peers around us commented on that were just ADHD traits. And it certainly wasn’t always positive.
I’ve been working on trying to find my strengths, and highlighting the ways in which my neurodivergent brain thrives. It can be a big job to unwork all of the messages we got growing up about how we “should” be. I’m happy to have found community that believes the only thing we need to be is ourselves.
