ADHD Never Sleeps

Getting back to basics — exercise, meditation, and a healthy respect for the disorder — is the only way to stay a step ahead of managing my adult ADHD.

3 Comments: ADHD Never Sleeps

  1. Nothing like the crushing RSD for moments like this, for years the intense feeling of that moment comes back with detailed recollection that the rest of brain wishes was available for important things. I drove to an airport in CT an hour in the wrong direction from the one in NY I was supposed to go to, on autopilot once, realizing only as I parked that the critical meeting I had to be at in Atlanta was now going to be impossible for me to catch on my original flight. Made it after a stress and humiliation filled morning, but you can’t expense $500 in change fees when you miss a flight because of ADHD.

  2. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you! This is a vicious cycle that I often get caught in. Thank you for shining a light on it. I really needed to read this today. I must keep a “healthy respect for the disorder”. yes!

  3. Thank you for this great reminder. I too often start to neglect my self-care methods when things are feeling “normal”—and it leads to the same types of meltdowns you mentioned. You’ve inspired me to make time to meditate each day this week and get a solid workout in this evening. Thank you!
