The scary side of #adhd that not people don’t often talk about:
1. Likely to live up to 20 years less than a neurotypical
2. High addiction propensity
3. Low to No Impulse control
4. How much money that makes you waste.
5. Low inhibition - add alcohol and you’ve got a great situation in which be taken advantage of.
6. You have a bad memory, a really bad memory - admit it.
7. It takes you a long time to mature in some areas.
8. Your brain is predisposed to recording the bad parts.
9. You’ve likely ghosted you fair share or people simply because you don’t understand emotions very well and may avoid the hard stuff.
10. You can have physical pain due to boredom 🤯🤮
11. At some point you may question if you really know yourself.
12. Money lost to difficult thing avoidance
13. Higher than Average likelihood to to end up in jail
14. Lower job stability
15. Likelihood of comorbid conditions
16. At some point you haven’t been able to control your emotions, likely way more than to you’d like.

The worse part of #adhd for me used to be an unending barrage of negative inner commentary.

I have coping mechanisms that have allowed me to fit in for years but the internal negativity was always there.

Then I decided I deserve better.
Don’t you want to see how a neurotypical brain can tune out and turn off noise?
Want to feel trust in your emotions?
Your reactions.
Have hope for the future?

You deserve better.
40% of us have some kind of comorbid (occurring together) condition along with ADHD
50% of us have anxiety specifically.

If you had diabetes you’d take medication to live - easy choice

ADHD is treatable.
It is manageable.
