Just finished a call with my buddy Holly Ann Kaspar who is doing great things in the ADHD Arena as well.
We’ve both experienced well intended but misguided efforts from those who offer a cure for ADHD.
They don’t understand the nature of ADHD as a life long condition.
I’m not saying ADHD is static, there are absolutely areas where you can grow and I strongly encourage it.
But here’s the thing, if others really want to help, then tell them what you truly need isn’t a cure, it’s a community.
A community of people who accept and understand that you’re working hard on yourself, strive to be and do your best, yet you still have ADHD.
☑️ You need help with accountability so you stick with tasks.
☑️ You may need someone to help you calm down when your emotions get away from you.
☑️ You may need a gentle prompt when you’ve been talking too long and need to give someone else a chance.
There are so many small ways people can help a person with ADHD be more successful.
It starts with simply being a part of your life.
