I have only just recently realized how debilitating my ADHD has been all my life.
But at the same time, I am realizing how much of a benefit it is. It’s like for years I have not been fully aware, I have not believed I had the potential, or that I would ever be able to do anything with my potential. Now I am finally waking up and using my brain the way it was meant to be used. By trying more to be myself instead of trying to always follow the rules and fit in, I have tapped into that potential everyone told me I had when I was a child again. Suddenly I feel brighter, quicker, more capable. I can look at a problem and immediately start thinking of the solution.
Now if only I could implement those solutions. Unfortunately, I don’t seem to have the endless energy that everyone always talks about.REPORT ABUSE
