      Hello to all,

      I realized how long this post got, so summary of the questions are at the bottom all the way at the bottom

      I am 23 & I was just diagnosed about a year ago and it’s definitely been a process. I have noticed a lot of repitition on the generalized symptoms of ADHD, but symptoms manifest themselves differently for every single person, especially in girls & women. It’s never occurred to me to ask what it looks like for my fellow ADHD community. If not its not too invasive I would love to read about your experiences.

      QUESTIONS:
      How does your ADHD…
      look like?
      shape your life?
      make you feel?
      shape your feelings?
      (Ex. Hypersensitivity! Haha. I knew myfeels were a little more heightened than most. & found that ADHD was the culprit for feeling ecstatic when someone is happy, feeling like I just caused the apocalypse bc of a tiny mistake, or my favorite: exploding in anger that I was almost mistaken for Hulk’s sister)

      COPING SKILLS & STRATEGIES:
      Things to look out for? Or more aware of?
      Ways of thinking differently or looking at things differently? (So what feels like a weakness is actually a skill lacking the right context)
      how to approach things (whatever it maybe, like feelings)?
      Self-forgiveness & self-respect

      Or anything else that you might think is helpful that I didn’t mention.

      Thanks!

      Messy lately. Not sure if its th ADHD or menapouse. I should feel greatful for what I have. A house, pets, a job, money, friends. But I’m always told at work that I have no time management skills, am lazy, am always late and can’t finish my work on time. I’m on meds, which help, but not cure. I was diagnosed a few years ago, and it all makes sense now. I didn’t tell my boss I have ADHD. But I’m at a risk of being fired. I pray a lot and I’m glad I found thus website tonight. It’s a blessing
