    It was RSD that led me to the formal diagnosis of ADHD.

    I have managed to control my RSD by cutting out all stimulants including caffeine.

    A lot of CBT therapy has helped me to realise that pleasing other people wasn’t making me happy. By focusing on myself and being authentic, RSD is greatly reduced.

    If anyone can recommend a coach in Kent or London that would be appreciated.

    I used to try and fight these interests, but since being diagnosed with ADHD I have learnt to embrace them.

    If you avoid them, your mind will only continue to search your horizon for other things to grab the senses and raise those dopamine levels.

    A new interest provides genuine rest for my busy mind.

    If you find the constant change in interests frustrating, I would recommend investing more of your time in any interests which are ‘arty’, rather than ‘sciencey’. My own personal experience is that research associated with these interests never really reaches any kind of conclusion (because they are subjective) and therefore they tend to have more longevity.

    Hope that helps and you find something that you can invest time in more consistently.
