New to ADHD?

Have you just found out you have ADHD? Or are you exploring the possibility that you might haveit? Either way it can cause a mixture of emotions! Relief, fear, asking, “Why me?” feeling overwhelmed about what to do next, are all normal. In fact, I wrote an article about the emotions here, called “The 5 Emotional Stages of ADHD.” It is helpful to know that even though they aren’t pleasant, these emotions are temporary. Remember, knowledge is power, and the more you understand about ADHD, the less daunting it can seem.

Been Living with ADHD For a While?

If you have being diagnosed with ADHD for a while, the initial shock has probably faded away.  You might have done lots of research and have a good understanding of what ADHD is.  If you are struggling a little to understand how to live your best life with ADHD, don’t worry, you are in the right place.

ADHD affects everyone slightly differently, so you might be figuring out how ADHD shows up for you. You might also be surprised that some of the things that you thought were just part of you are actually related to ADHD – even seemingly small things like opening your mail, or doing housework.

You might also be trying to determine what symptoms are related to ADHD, or what symptoms are related to a co-existing condition such as PTSD, a learning disorder, anxiety or depression.

You Don’t Have ADHD Yourself, But Someone You Love And Care About Does

It’s hard to watch someone you love get upset when they are newly diagnosed with ADHD. Or see them frustrated and struggle with activities that come easily to non-ADHDers.

Perhaps the most powerful thing you can do to help is learn about ADHD.   The more you understand about the condition, the easier it is for you to know instinctively what would be helpful to your loved one. Plus, learning about ADHD means you understand that your loved ones actions aren’t purposely done to hurt or frustrate you.
