Thank you all for starting & sharing on this topic. I was officially diagnosed last year at 40 & I have been struggling to reframe my ADHD traits in a positive way, while learning new strategies for managing the problematic symptoms.
I’ve always succeeded when it’s been OK to let my hyperfocus “out” to go to work. It’s good to learn I’m not unfeeling or spooky to be really focused & good in a crisis, when others are frozen, but to understand that it’s adrenaline kicking my prefrontal cortex into “normal” gear.
