Lies I Told Myself

It’s a Monday morning and the rain beats down outside, falling from a leaden grey sky in its pursuit to wash away the warmth and usher in the colder, damper part of the year when summer dust is replaced by sticky mud and long balmy nights make way for frozen onyx darkness.

My ADHD – How Does It Affect My Life?

My New Wobble Stool!

Yesterday, something awesome arrived at my house. Beautifully purple and terrifically tactile, my fabulous new wobble stool is just what the doctor ordered!

ADHD Work Accommodations

💜 SHARE TO SPREAD AWARENESS! 💜  People always ask me how I am so organised in my job and I always tell them it’s because I work for myself and have made my career ADHD-friendly.
