I love this topic! I’ve been struggling so much with this exact same thing lately. I recently was asked by my child’s paediatrician if I’ve ever been diagnosed for ADHD and I was shocked. Turns out I tick a lot of the boxes on any given quiz (am yet to be officially diagnosed). But it really has me floored. I keep hyper focusing on all of the symptoms and looking back to events in my life where I definitely was displaying signs of ADHD. I suffer with anxiety too. I really like strwbry’s post above about celebrating the good thingas about ADHD. Without it I definitely would be boring and dull. It makes me who I am. I just have to learn to accept that. :/
