Living As An Extroverted ADHDer

Way back in 2015 (or around that time), I did the ’16 Personalities Test’. Even though there is no scientific support – as such – for such measures of personality, I was with my best friend at the time and it was quite a fun thing to do! Interestingly, we both came out with theContinue reading “Living As An Extroverted ADHDer”

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. I am alone.Continue reading “Lies I Told Myself”

Hello Lovely Human – A Poem About adHD

I wrote this poem with a new take on the term ‘ADHD’. I don’t like the term ADHD (most of us don’t seem to) and I wanted to add a positive slant to this!

My World In Extremes!

I have ADHD and my brain is like a supercomputer. I process everything at a million miles an hour and just taking the time to slow down can be intensely hard. Just writing the word ‘intense’ makes me think about how intense I am as a person – I have ADHD and I don’t doContinue reading “My World In Extremes!”

My ADHD – How Does It Affect My Life?

A number of people have asked me about my own ADHD so I thought I’d compile a list of ways it affects me on a daily basis! – Struggling to focus on anything I don’t enjoy: School was okay most of the time as I LOVE learning (and lessons were only an hour), but putContinue reading “My ADHD – How Does It Affect My Life?”

Why I’ve Settled On The Name ‘ADHD Galaxy’

Over the last few days, I’ve sat here and sat here thinking about the perfect name for social media!
