“Has ADHD Warped Your Sense of Self? It’s Time to Reclaim Your Story — and Power.”
“Being repeatedly misunderstood causes people with ADHD to deeply misunderstand themselves and their situations. Feeling deficient and mistrusting yourself from an early age makes it extraordinarily difficult to properly evaluate yourself as an adult. These misunderstandings can have rough consequences, so what can we do about it?”

Thank you for this article. It’s beautifully written, speaks so much truth, and shares meaningful action plans. I’d like to find a similar article for my ADHD teenager, whom we just discovered has ADHD, and struggles severely with self-esteem.
After reading the article on ADHD I have a lot of the symptoms but one thing that was brought to my attention many years ago was, a friend asked me “do you ever have anything good or positive to talk about? All your conversations in the past, present and future are all negative and bad” I asked a professional about that and he (School Counselor) said something that I believe I was too young to understand but he said “my filters may only allow me to remember bad and not good” does this make sense to you or anyone?
