It takes a lot of energy to make your way in the world with ADHD.
As someone with ADHD, I’ve tried to hide my natural ways of thinking and behaving to fit into a non-ADHD world. I do my best to look “normal,” which usually means pretending to be a grown-up while hog-tying my impulsive thoughts and actions.
It means struggling to remember things, pay attention in meetings, listen to directions and complete tasks. Some days I feel like I can’t get my scattered thoughts in order long enough to start a task, let alone finish it. By evening I’m exhausted. I easily feel inept, and I judge myself harshly.
If you see yourself in any of this story, there’s hope. I wrote You Brain’s Not Broken specifically for you—and for those you love.
In this book, I use my years of coaching to help explain how ADHD affects every aspect of your life. It’s designed to offer insight and understanding about why you think, feel and act the way you do. My hope is this new understanding will not only help you navigate the world better, but inspire you to take the driver’s seat in writing your own ADHD story.
