Our ADHD family needed a lot of support — individual help and team assists. Support groups, therapists, and a strong family team carried me through the toughest times. I also found comfort in spirituality.
At first, I expected the support of others to telepathically heal me. But then I found out I had to support myself. I dove into yoga, meditation, weightlifting, and a spiritual community. In yoga classes, when I opened my body into a pose, I let go of my struggles, the mental anguish, and worries. I learned to be present in the moment, to embrace the now. With every stretch and every breath, I let go of the tension, the tightness, and the stress. When I went to the gym, lifting weights empowered me, mentally and physically. When I took a walk, I became one with nature, knowing there was something greater guiding me through. Finding this support provided such great solace, and strength.
