      Well enjoy the journey of embracing having ADHD. I noticed that each one of us have different personal experiences and perspectives regarding handling our ADHD. I grew up during the times when being medicated for ADHD was taboo. So, I learned to succeed in what I do by figuring out how others normally think and what the rules are. And I made it into a game of meeting the expectations and going above and beyond by "owning" how I went about it. As an adult who still have ADHD, I have options to have medication but I had so much fun figuring out to do things my way with my ADHD that I turned down the option. There are some days when my brain goes all over the place. And I have fun figuring out what to do with it. Sometimes it just means I haven't taken the time to rest and just dream so I carve out a time specifically to just stare at the wall and let my brain fly however it wants to go. Sometimes it just means I need to finally address the pile of laundry and put them away. But one thing I realize is that trying to get others who don't think like me to understand me has been a waste of time. Mainly because they really can't think the same way. And usually when I try to explain, they keep saying that's not what happens to them or how they think. So, I stopped trying to get them to understand and focused on understanding myself instead.

      well, if you have a monthly flow, pray. if you do this is for you: you know how you feel as if you’re going insane like every month? that’s from a your adhd. it like… multiplies or combines with your hormones or something and you are literally going insane for those few days, although that is no excuse to do something insane, if you happen to have a mental breakdown every month and/or get called emo, you are emotional and it’s from your adhd. ❤️

      Patients its a virtue also something we have to have and remember to talk slow not so slow that it takes forever for your words to come out just slow enough for people to understand what you’re trying to say space it out like a word every 15 seconds that we can probably go with three words and every 10 most people can’t keep up with that also have understanding that while you’re working and really are busy and get super bored because you’re not Mentally occupied as you would like to be try to only talk to other people ADHD

      Ok no seriously tho, I’ve had ADD since about 6th grade and for me it made it super hard to focus on school and I almost got held back a few times because focusing was just impossible. I eventually got on some meds like focalin and adderall and they helped a lot.
