Hey there Brains! I am (very) new to this forum, website and Jessica’s refreshingly fun, frank and honest discussions on ADHD. I only came across her and all of you, while randomly Googling tips to tailor my Bullet Journal system for my ADHD brain and well here i am…
I am 90% sure i have ADHD and this has been the case for only a matter of months after my mother was diagnosed last year and we started to talk about it more, the more and more i have read, researched and observed in myself the more i have come to believe i too am living with an ADHD brain and i was going to take action via my GP… BUT THEN Covid happened and everything changed - overnight and my ADHD brain now faces even more challenges than it ever has!!! Working remotely full time with ADHD is so tough!! But as i work in London and realistically won’t be able to access the office until 2021 i have to find a way to not only cope but to thrive.
After watching some of Jessica’s videos and then her TEDx talk Failing at Normal (which made me cry) i have just called my GP surgery to request an appointment to discuss being referred for an ADHD assessment - it’s only the first step, but it feels good.
I wondered how other’s were coping in this new, isolated world - what’s working for you and what isn’t working? Are you giving the impression of being super effcient while actually you’re struggling to focus on anything…i’d love to hear from others on this.
