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.

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.
