It’s everywhere. The pandemic is seeping into every nook and cranny of our ADHD lives, disrupting our carefully crafted routines. So how are you holding up? In an ongoing ADDitude survey about ADHD and the coronavirus, many adults with ADHD are feeling anxiety and overwhelm like they never have before. They are too unfocused to complete their own work at home, too challenged and tired to help their kids with schoolwork while trying to juggle the basics of life, and too emotionally overwrought to stick to healthy routines.

The good news is we can keep our brains awake and alive with positivity, not gloom and doom. We can maintain our routines or create new ones that work for now. We can take the long view and know that, eventually, this will end. Hope, gratitude, and the best qualities of our ADHD will get us through.
