Hi, I’m Dawnslayer, I just found this place not too long ago. I just got diagnosed with ADHD-C about a month ago, and a friend recommended How to ADHD. So far the videos have been really helpful, but I’m hoping to talk to some people, uh, text to text? Or however you want to put it.
So, um, introducing myself… I have general and social anxiety, which is how I ended up in counseling, which lead to my recent diagnosis of ADHD. I have a pet hamster named Milo, and have had many pets over the years (chickens, gerbils, hamsters) and am now working at a veterinary clinic. My long-term plan is to go into the book industry as an author, designer, and translator. Which is taking longer than expected, but I’ll soon have my associate’s degree in graphic/web design. (If I can pass all my classes.) Other than procrastinating, I mostly knit, play the cello, and play with Duolingo (I swear I will figure out the Hebrew alphabet SOMEDAY). I’m a huge superhero nerd and Marvel fan (although DC does have some good content, too). Squirrel Girl, Gwenpool, Spider-Man, and the Winter Soldier are my favorites.
Right now I’m trying to focus my energy on work, college, and writing. And figuring out how to work with my brain instead of fighting against it constantly (and ending up exhausted as a result). So here’s to hoping that things go well (national novel writing month is coming up for us writers, after all) and that I come out the other side the better for it. Oh before I forget, it’s nice to meet you all.
