MOST RECENT

In high school my friends would talk about the books they were reading and I would purposely tune out of the conversation because I was always afraid to admit to i quit reading for fun years ago, it was too hard to get farther than a couple sentences without daydreaming. Now i try to read books that i have a strong interest in and i will write in notes and underline things to help me stay focused along the way and not push myself to read too much at a time. I tell myself it's okay if you don't finish an entire chapter, don't beat yourself up. What are some things that help you stay focused reading? 📚 #adhd #adhdawareness #adhdwomxn #adhdwomen #womxnwithadhd #womenwithadhd #endthestigma #attentiondeficitdisorder #add #mentalhealth #embraceyourdifferences #transformyourlife #livingwithadhd #lifewithadhd #adhdgirls

Welcome! I'm Melissa. I decided to create this account a few days ago for womxn with adhd not to separate us from males, but adhd in females is a little bit different in that it isn't always hyperactive as it commonly is in males. Therefore, goes undiagnosed. Womxn are so often misdiagnosed with depression/anxiety or other mental illnesses when really it's just an undiagnosed case of adhd because the hyperactivity is internalized and we don't know how to react to all our thoughts. In my case, i spent 23 years wondering what was wrong with me, why i was so different/ incompetent and after finishing college i decided it was time to tackle my mental health. After being hospitalized, trying different medications and therapy i found it was actually adhd. When i found out, i cried because i felt a sense of relief. I'd felt lost my entire life but here it was, every aspect of adhd made sense to me and the community was so relatable to me, more than i have ever been able to relate with anyone else. I hope this account helps others not feel so alone in this ✊🏻✊🏼✊🏽✊🏾✊🏿🌸🌷🌺 #adhd #adhdawareness #adhdwomxn #adhdwomen #womxnwithadhd #womxnwithadhd #endthestigma #attentiondeficitdisorder #add #mentalhealth #embraceyourdifferences #transformyourlife #livingwithadhd #lifewithadhd #adhdgirls

Bipolar Depression Power™
-

Remember, you are not the illness. It's something that you face™
-

Our mission is to remove the negative stigma by empowering others to regain their self-love, self-worth and see the illness as something they face not something they are. When you say I’m bipolar, I’m depressed, or I have bipolar, I have anxiety and so on. You are only empowering the illness. Also, that is how others will see you and remember you, by what you are telling them you have or are. The word we in power is "Face." (I face bipolar) When you tell yourself or others that you are facing something, you are also saying you are doing something about. It also helps remove the negative stigma as people might not understand the illness but we have all face something, and that creates an emotional connection with one another.
-

If we don’t separate, ourselves from the illness, how do we expect others to not identify us as the illness? Today you start saying I am “YOUR NAME GOES HERE” before ANYTHING.

I feel a lot more than a person without adhd, I can’t just let something go. It’s not that easy, it’s even more difficult when the one thing that i have always felt confident and proud about is questioned... I can’t just let it go when it means a lot to me. #livingwithadhd #adhdawareness #adhd #adhdisreal #mentalhealth #emotional #understanding #ithurts #mentalhealthawareness #adhdisnotanexcuse

"Wait, what was i just going to do?" "Oh yeah" Checklists are what kept me going through college. I would have check boxes for even the smallest steps of my day. 1. brush teeth 2. eat breakfast 3. don't forget transit card, keys, homework, ID, wallet, a pen, paper, camera 4. stop for coffee before getting on train 5. leave 10 min early to get a seat on train 6. breathe #checklists #adhdtools #todolists #adhd #adhdawareness #adhdwomxn #adhdwomen #womxnwithadhd #womxnwithadhd #endthestigma #attentiondeficitdisorder #add #mentalhealth #embraceyourdifferences #transformyourlife #livingwithadhd #lifewithadhd #adhdgirls

~Living With ADD~
Accept Diagnose Deal

Yesterday I shared with you signs of ADD for children ages K-Grade 2. I began showing signs of ADD/ADHD very young, when I appeared to be a bit more "rambunctious" than my siblings. "Rambunctious" was the word my parents used instead of "hyperactivity". My mom always said, I set the tone of the house for the day the minute my feet touched the floor in the morning. I just thought that meant I was the leader😂. I was able to behave in school because I was very aware of my "rambunctiousness", so by the time I got home I was bouncing off the walls. But I wasn't officially diagnosed with ADHD/ADD until 4th grade. Here are signs of ADD in Grades 3-7:
•Has a hard time getting started on tasks.
•Is often very restless. •Often fidgets, moves around or makes too much noise during quiet time.
•Tends to forget what she just heard or read, unless she is very interested.
•Often rushes through assignments or is messy.
•Spaces out or loses focus.
•Often stops doing homework or chores without finishing them.
•Tends to forget things like bringing home notes or turning in homework.
•Has trouble waiting her turn to join a conversation or activity.
•Works too slowly.

Check back tomorrow for signs of ADD in Teens.
